Default Re: Need help... how to make Minnie Ear clips

I recently made monkey ears for my dd's Curious George party. The ears were detachable and on alligator clips. Here's what I did to make them stand out.

I lined the clip w/ribbon. Then I hot glued a strip of felt to the inside of the clip so that, combined with the clip, looked like a cross.

Then, I brough the ends of the stip together and glued them together.

I used craft foam for my ears and sandwiched the felt in between my foam pieces.

Here's a picture of my finished product....

(The top headband is wrapped in ribbon and the clips are inserted between the layers of ribbon. The bottom headband had the ears attached the same way I attached them to the clips, except directly to the headband and no clips.) Hope this all makes sense. If not, I'll try to take pics of each step.
