How To Make A Flower Hair Comb - Excel Blades
Step 1: Grab your Alumicutter Ruler, K26 Fit Grip Knife and fabric. Line up your fabric on the edge of the cutting mat. Using the ruler on the cutting mat, measure the edge of the fabric to 14”
Step 2: Next, place your alumicutter ruler on the edge of the fabric vertically. Measure 4.5” tall and cut the edge to mark the spot. Then, place your alumicutter ruler along fabric parallel to the longer edge. Cut along the ruler with your K26. You should now have a piece of fabric that is 14” x 4.5”.
Step 3: Take your Dual Strip Cutter and adjust the parallel blades to your desired width. Once you have decided how wide you want the strips to be, cut strips across the whole length of the fabric. You want to make sure you leave about a half an inch of uncut fabric on each side of the longer edges.
Step 4: Next, grab your green leather. Using your Fit Grip Knife, cut leaves out for your flower comb.
Step 5: Now, grab your fabric pieces and your glue gun. Glue the longer sides of the edgesb together. Once the edges are glues together, your fabric should look like a loop.
Step 6: Once the glued edges have dried, start to roll the fabric to create a flower. As you roll the fabric add a little bit of hot glue to the uncut edge to ensure the flower stays together.
Now it is time to assemble your flower hair comb!
Step 7: Grab your hair comb and leather, or felt, flower. Flatten out the top of the flower to make it look more like a flower. Once you have flattened it to your desire, glue the flower to your hair comb. Now that the flower is glued, you can add your leaf. Glue your leaf to the hair comb and then let the glue dry.
