St. Valentine’s Clips

sweetie joy

My girls are out growing my bows.  I think I may have burnt them out.  I couldn’t resist, they had a head full of hair since birth.

They both are fond of a decorative clip.  I made a version of a decorative felt clip for 4th of July and decided to recreate the clip for St. Valentine’s Day.

The girls can now make their own decorative clips.  They will be making the basic heart clips as an early St. Valentine’s treat for their friends.  Their friends will be able to take the clips home to embellish on their own, in time for St. Valentine’s Day.

Sparkles chose a glitter-puff sticker of Christ the King for her heart clip.  I reinforced the sticker with hot glue.  The clip can be put everywhere.

Sweetie chose to adhere heart to a headband.  It can also be clipped to a shirt.
