purpleluggage floral headbands

Just a little info on the floral headbands I just posted. A lot of people have been asking about them saying they look so pretty and dainty but wonder why they're priced differently than most headbands out in the market, so I wanted to give you guys a little peek into what actually goes into making these pretty floral pieces :)

I begin by making the petal canes I will use to make flowers. I usually make them by batches so i always have several canes with the same color scheme.

my pasta machine, my trusty sidekick

When I've made enough canes, i cut very thin slices from these petal canes and make the flowers by hand, building each flower petal by petal.

And when I've made enough flowers I assemble them and lay them out on a brass finish headband base and bake the whole shebang in the oven. The whole process ( from making canes to baking to post-curing processes) takes about two days. yep. Two days.

So although they do cost more than your average headband, you're sure that each piece is unique and made with love.
