Want to know how easy it is to Make a Pretty Princess Crown using Stampin’ Up!’s So Detailed thinlits dies?  In honour of Princess Day today (yup, bet you didn’t know!), I wanted to make a sweet and simple crown that any up-and-coming princess could make.  Not only are these perfect to make as decorations and party crowns for a your little sweeties, they are a great activity for the party itself.  And what about mom-daughter days?  What a fun time!

And even grown up princesses will love these!  Think of the possibilities – spa parties, stagettes, birthdays, ironing…!

You need minimal supplies – and time – to whip up a couple of these sparkly sweeties. A little card stock and some embellishments!  Both the glimmer paper and metallic ribbon are Sale-a-bration items you could get for free with a $60 order available until March 31st!

The Ingredients:

  • two 1″ pieces of card stock (I used 2-8″ for the light pink and 2-11″ for the sugarplum pink)
  • one So Detailed thinlits die cut in coordinating colours
  • ribbon  (I love the flexible softness of this ribbon!)
  • accents (I used Basic Rhinestones, White Accents and Enamel Metallic Shapes) dressed up with some Fine Tip Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter

Here is my first try.  My band measures about 15″ once put together and you can see my seam in the middle of the front.  I give you a couple tips below to have this not happen!  You can make these bands whichever size you need to for your party guests.

Tips before you start:

  1. Apply your Fine Tip Glue directly to the White Perfect Accent and sprinkle with glitter and LET DRY.  (CAUTION:  Because of the plastic these are stuck to, you will get glitter on it – and you too – my husband said I had it all over my face when I was done!)
  2. Cut two pieces of card stock that measure 11″ each.  This gives you the most flexibility and will help ensure you don’t have the seam in front.
  3. Measure what size crown you will need.  Cut down your band so it is 1 1/2″ larger. (Cut from one end only.)
  4. Decide where you will glue your fancy “crown” part.  Avoid where the seam overlaps.  (Note that your back join doesn’t need to be right at the back but can be on the side as it is on my sugarplum sample below.)  Use liquid glue to glue crown in place.

Here a the steps to create these yourself!

Use a good amount of liquid glue to hold the band together.  Attache and let dry.

At the end of one band, about 3/4″ from the end, cut a slit 3/4’s of the way into the band on a diagonal as shown.

(Tip: You can also just place your second scrap piece over top before you cut the first slit and cut them together.)

Tip: You may need to use a drop of liquid glue to adhere to the crown as the glitter might remove some of the stickiness.
