Glue your small piece to your comb to give the rosettes a base. The pinking shears will keep the ends from fraying but you could also singe the ends with a lighter.
Start gluing your rosettes together. Begin by adding a bit of glue to both ends and folding over like so. Trim off any threads you have left and any frays from the zipper.
Then you are going to just tack your rosette together with glue to hold it's shape. It works best to start at the base and work your way to the middle. Add a bit of glue to the end and glue to the next layer.
Continue adding little bits of glue here and there to hold your rosette together, as shown. Hold a few seconds each time to allow the glue to cool.
Here's what you have when you are finished.
Now begin by gluing the largest rosette to the middle of the comb.
Then add the smaller to either side, shoving them together to create a little overlapping.
Add a bit of glue where they overlap each other and press to allow the glue to cool.
Rock it with an updo or with your hair down and a little combed to the side, ca-ute!
I did the same thing for the headband except that I arranged them a little differently.
Now that you know the basics you could make tons of them in all sizes and glue them to headbands, shoe clips, pin backs for brooches, packages, etc, etc, etc. You could even make them huge for fascinators! My beads are all boxed up but you could add a little bling in the center to spice them up.
I'd love to see yours!! ♥
