Hair flower tutorial

Hair Flower Tutorial
Just thought since I haven't blogged in like 2 MONTHS!!! that I would share a quick and easy tutorial to kick off me blogging again.
Here's what you need:
Flowers (you can use any kind you prefer; I got mine at Michaels and they are awesome)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Gems for the middle of the flower (you can use any size you would like)
1" grossgrain ribbon
alligator clip or clip of your choice
You are first going to pull the stem off of your flower. Then you want to pull the green plastic thing off of the back. Your flower may start to fall apart that is o.k. we are going to glue it all together.
I also pulled the middle of my flower out because I wanted to put a gem there. You could leave it if you want.
Now you are going to glue all the layers of the flower together. I leave the flower stacked and just left one layer at a time and squeeze a little glue in there and then I repeat on the other side of the flower.
Next you are going to glue the gem in the middle of the flower.
Then take the alligator clip and run a small line of glue across the back of the flower and open your clip and place it on the flower. I slide the piece of ribbon (that is about 2" long) in between the clip at this point so that you don't glue your clip down. Glue both sides of the ribbon down on either side of the clip and it shouldn't go anywhere
Clip it in your hair and you are good to go!!!
