My First Video!

This is the project I did at Stampapalooza this weekend.  We had a GREAT time!!  My project was three hair bows.  All together, everyone got to make 16 projects.  I will post those projects, too.
This is my first ever video, and it's a little blurry...
Thanks to everyone who came!!

Supplies used: Soft Suede Cardstock; Big Shot p.215, $99.95; Tasteful Trim Die p.221, $42.95; Extended Cutting Pads p.215, $19.95; 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch p.210, $16.95; 1 3/8” Circle Punch p.212, $15.95; 12x12 Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (12) p.216, $14.95; Spice Cake Fabric p.18 (mini), $9.95; Craft & Rubber Scissors p.208, $19.95; Craft (aka Ribbon) Scissors p.208, $29.95; 5/8” Neutrals Brads (32) p.199, $6.95; Regals Buttons (72) p.197, $8.95; 1/8” Early Espresso Taffeta (10 yds) p.195, $5.95; hot glue gun; hair clip; computer

1. Die cut all 3 pieces of fabric at one time – use a SHIM ON TOP.

2. Attach adhesive sheets to all SIX pieces of Soft Suede cs (peel off the sheet that says Sizzix – this is the NON sticky side). Suede is 2 ½ x 2 ½; adhesive sheets are 2 ¼ x 2 ¼.

3. Punch out 3 circles and 3 scallop circles.

4. Peel off protective coating from one scallop circle; attach fabric as shown in video. When you get to the center, secure it with the hot glue gun. USE HOT GLUE GUN TIP TO PRESS IN FABRIC (INSTEAD OF YOUR FINGER).

5. Repeat on next two.

6. Cut off brad backs with CRAFT scissors (not ribbon scissors); tie ribbon through mustard button. USE HOT GLUE GUN to attach brads/button. (Cut off ONE prong at a time – hold on to the prong while you cut so it doesn’t fly into your eye.)

7. Peel off backing of off circles. Attach hair clip as shown in video.
