Graphic 45 "Princess" Paper Crowns

You know that as soon as I saw Graphic 45's "Princess" I was going to make crowns. It was an inevitability!

And I did! Three simple paper beauties.

I cut a simple three pointed crown shape from the 12" Princess pad, about 6" tall at the highest point.

Added a 1.75" band around the bottom, and secured a ribbon for tying between the layers.

Note: the gold piece you see there was a Fancy Gold Dresden Diadem I had in my stash BEGGING to be used!

This gave me the base to which fussy cut butterflies, die cut pieces, Princess Chipboard,
Princess Stickers and other embellishments were added.

These butterflies were snipped from papers from Olde Curiosity Shoppe—Deluxe Collector's Edition.

These were snipped from "Flutter".

There are a few Metal Brads here and there but I wanted to keep these crowns really lightweight so that they didn't slip around when worn.
