After a quick browse, I asked her to put together some flowers, hair clips and associated accessories so I could sit down with Anna and have a girly craft afternoon.
Melissa totally nailed the brief - check out this lovely bunch of goodies that arrived super quick in the mailbox only two days after we'd exchanged emails!
Armed with my trusty glue gun, Anna matched the blingy little diamantes with the various flowers and I glued her creations together. The butterfly diamantes were the drawcard and she wanted to glue them to ALL THE THINGS.
We also used the pink fold over elastic to make a couple of headbands, where I hand stitched the flowers to the elastic.
My models were having a "we only get out of bed for ten thousand dollars" type of day so the pictures really don't do the finished products justice.
Thanks kiddos. I'm trying to be all professional here. You are letting my facade slip!
And while it's supposed to be me with all the brilliant crafty ideas, Anna said while we played with the big pile of lush faux flowers "Mum, we should do this at my birthday party when I turn six."
I intend to ask Melissa to make up a flowers and hair clips party pack for me so Anna and her buddies can have a ball making their own designer hair accessories. Crafty fun activity and party favours all in one go. Think Bowtique's prices are significantly better than large craft stores and her range of colours and items are much wider, so buying in bulk is really affordable.
If you are a maker who sells at markets, a seamstress who uses a lot of embellishments, makes dance wear or hair accessories, or you are just a crafty person like me who likes to have fun with pretty things, you should definitely visit Think Bowtique and check out Melissa's great range of ribbons, elastics, flowers and other crafty supplies.
