DIY Baby Girl Headbands

UPDATE:  If you are interested in purchasing one of these baby girl headband please leave me a comment and I would be happy to contact you with purchasing details.

I have quite a few friends that are having baby girls so when I saw this adorable tutorial on Pinterest I jumped on it.  The tutorial does a great job of telling you how to create the headbands but doesn't give you all of the necessary details on where you can find some of the components for the headbands.  Some of the components were easy to find like the felt but others were much more difficult, ie the flower petal template so I had to take that into my own hands.  After searching google I came up with this, seen below-

I copied and pasted it into Word, print it out and then cut it out.  I used the piece as my pattern and just like the tutorial suggest, cut out 4 flowers per headband.

The other item that the tutorial used that proved pretty difficult to locate was the fold over elastic ribbon.  I finally found it for a resonable price on Etsy at a shop called BestBobs.  I purchased 15 yards total in two different colors for about $7.00 (the shipping ended up being more expensive then the actual ribbon but it was exactly what I was looking for so I bit the bullet and went ahead and purchased it).

Once all of the items were in place I put the headbands together.
Here is how the finished products turned out:

Finally I designed and printed out special holder/tags for each of the headbands, looped the headbands each of them and now they are ready to gift!

Here are the finished products!
