Hair ties with Fun Flowers and Flower Folds Dies + Flirtatious!

These were so much fun to make!!  Another project using our beautiful new fabrics, this time the "Flirtatious" collection that goes with the Delicate Doilies stamp set and Flirtatious specialty Designer Series Paper.  I've used the new Fun Flowers die for the flower in the top photo, simply layering several of the different shapes on the die, cut from each of the three fabrics in the pack.  I've stitched through a Melon Mambo button and onto a thick, snagless hair elastic, so they should last quite well.  I've given them a spray with a fabric stiffener to ensure they don't fray.  Miss 6 and a bit is coveting these, so I'm not sure they'll be mine for long!  The one in the bottom photo was made with the Flower Folds Bigz XL die, in exactly the same way. There are several sizes of flower on this die, and I used the smaller ones - you could make a dramatic race-day statement with the largest if you wanted!  I hope you are inspired to get out your Bigshot dies and discover their versatility.
