I like to add a small piece of satin ribbon on the back of flower, looks very dainty. It is easier sometimes to match the ribbon to flower then to match the felt.

Thanks! I'll have to try that right now. I tried my wood burner and singing them together, and also with the lighter. No bueno.

I also just found this whole thread on it: http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/how-m...headbands.html

I normally put a dab of hot glue for the ends, then I sew to make it more secure. Then I glue on the flower and glue a piece of matching ribbon or felt to cover up any flaws.

With the skinny elastic I generally cut it to the same length as I do my FOE, they are both really stretchy. I basically heat up both ends of the elastic, and 99% of the time they catch a light and the flame goes out if i blow on it or move it from the candle flame. Anywho, while its still hot I will mush the ends together and try to keep it as straight as I can but normally it's off by a mm or two. I will pinch the 'mushed' bit with my fingers too and warning it is hot but I just push through the little pain and make sure it's stuck properly.

Sorry if that was a little confusing! Then when gluing singed flowers I will glue a circle of felt to the elastic and then glue it to the flower(s). Mind you I haven't got down pat how to have multiple flowers on an elastic headband and have them stay together and not seperate when worn

i overlap the two ends a bit (about a half an inch) and glue them. press down till really secure. then i glue a circle piece of felt on and then glue the flower to that piece.
