One of my close friends asked me to fancy up a package for her niece's graduation gift. As far as I am concerned, the wrapping of a package is just as important as what you might find inside. If the outside looks fabulous the anticipation of what is hidden beneath the wrapping is much greater. And besides, I love making presents look good, it just the kind of gal that I am.
Choosing some jars of embellishment from my shutter supply holder, I decided to make some hair clips that will not only fancy up the package but can used later as well.
First I crocheted some small flowers and the use millinery flowers and little jewels to give a bit of a sparkle. I then hot glue them to alligator clips. They can be used clipped onto a headband or just directly into your hair.
