Default covered headbands

ok, I bought some plastic 3/8 inch headbands and Ive been lining them with ribbon and than attaching a flower. The problem I am having, is taking pictures of these..My pictures DO NOT turn out good...maybe it bothers me bc I can see the plastic part of the headband bc it not "wrapped" its just covered. any adivce?

Here is a pic of one Ive taken:

I don't really know about the wrapping, I am new to them myself. For the photographing, I would photograph mine on a childs head or use something circular.

I would go ahead and wrap the ribbon or just add a layer of ribbon to the bottom. I would not use the pretty ribbon but something thats a similar color.

  1. I cover it inside and out by wrapping
  2. I put mine in a vase so they stand up when I photograph them

so you line the inisde as well? I thought about doing that too but I already had started doing it the other way...because I dont like how you can see how I just folded it up on the ends...cant you still see how its folded up when you wrap the entire headband?

ok, that makes sense...isnt there like one end though that still has a ribbon end showing though? Maybe im just not sure exactly how you are wrapping it.

I haven't tried this yet (I don't have any 3/8" headbands or I'd try)--so take my suggestion with a grain of salt, as they say ; )
What if you used just a plain 3/8 satin or grosgrain plain ribbon on the insideand then use the other ribbon on the outside just as you've been doing? The plastic is covered and I don't think yours looked bad (you just don't like the plastic showing inside..) The wrapping would take alot more ribbon...
Just a thought...I don't know...Let me know how it goes : )
