if the crown fits...

Lately I've had an obsession with crowns!
Don't ask me why... they've just got my full attention.
I thought I'd make a few to scatter around with my Winter decorations.
Most important tool when creating something new? Paper, of course! Cheap copy paper or a sheet ripped right out of your notebook- it can't be beat. It's plentiful and no matter if it takes 1 sheet or a dozen to create a pattern, you just crumple up and throw away the mistakes! 
Once I had a pattern, I gathered up anything that looked like it might work...
It only took small pieces of printed paper and little snips of trim...
I was really excited to use the metal filigree piece that had been in a drawer for the last couple years. It finally had a job to do!
Not in the mood for a lot of frill? How about this tiny guy? Made with the smallest scrap of paper, it was embellished with just a piece of chenille stem, some buttons and chunky glitter.

If the crown fits...

I can't make your class for these wonderful crowns, but would love to buy a kit. Please let me know, 1) do you have kits for this and 2) how can I get payment to you? Thanks!
