Here’s what I received in the mail:

To make my headband, I first used a very scientific and mathematical method of figuring out how much elastic to cut (aka wrapping it around a kid’s head).  I added a little bit, maybe an inch or so, in order to have room to tie it.

Headband_plainI then used some safety pins to attach the flowers to the elastic.  I again was very precise by putting the headband on the child, then sticking my finger where I wanted the flowers to go.

Headband_flowersI even had enough elastic left to make a ponytail holder!

Look how cute!
