ArtEmboss Foil and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Hair Bands

Hmmmm, seemed like a good idea in my head, but not so good in reality……!
Tattered Florals Tim Holtz
Thanks to Angie I now know that this material is called ArtEmboss Foil and I can now order some more because after yesterday I have used up the last bit I had.
I had a (mad) idea for making foil flowers using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and putting them on hair bands, but if I am honest this is not a very strong or durable project as the weight/thickness of foil I’ve used is quite soft and malleable and as a result can be easily squashed, altered if the wearer is not careful or fiddles with it (also making them unsuitable for young children), but it was an interesting experiment ….. and OK as a one off wear.

I’ve attached the flowers with a hot glue gun onto  Poundworld hairbands (3 for £1).

The flowers look humungous in the pictures, it’s just the closeness and the angle I took them at …. they are not really as huge as they seem!
