Birthday Tiara

We recently attended a surprise birthday party for one of Husband's co-workers. Since she also loves to craft, I knew I had to make something extra special for the occasion. In addition to a pretty card:

...I made my first tiara to help her celebrate the big day.

I cut a pattern from a piece of bristol paper, since it's sturdy and the longest type of paper I had. I used the pattern to cut two pieces of fabric. I used spray adhesive to sandwich the bristol between the two pieces of fabric and then I stitched along the edges to make sure the crown wouldn't come apart.

I added a large crepe paper rosette to the front, with glittered numbers.

Vintage flowers, tatted doilies, and sparkly stars accent it.

And a fluffy crepe paper ruffle with pom pom trim finish off the bottom.

This was my first attempt at making a tiara, but it certainly won't be my last! I can't wait to make more. I think I'll have one to wear for every holiday!

I LOVE your tiara, Erica! Yes, I think you'll have to make one to wear for every holiday! And by the way, my birthday is in October, so you have plenty of time to make one for me!
Are you going to EXPO? We babysit my Grandchildren every day from 7 to 6, so my only time to go is on Saturday. Hope to see you soon!

You are so creative, my friend! What an adorable birthday card and tiara! Love the banner on the card and love, love everything about the tiara! Great idea to sandwich the bristol between fabric...love the big rosette in the middle and love that ruffled trim across the bottom. Bet she looked like an absolute birthday princess in this!
