I measure how far it is from my worktable top to the floor by using a cold heat tool and it's cord. I shorten the cord by 1-2 inches then I use masking tape to secure the heat tool to the table top. That way if it falls off the table it won't burn the floor.

I keep a very long(5-6 In) nail with my hot glue supplies. It's great to use the end to hold things down until the glue has cooled and the hot glue will peel right off. It also could be used to apply small dots of glue.

I use pieces of paper grocery bags underneath my work area to catch any glue and can also use it to check if my glue gun is hot enough.

I sew all of my bows, so when ever I have a lot of bows to make I have atleast 15 needles already threaded so that I do not have to stop & rethread as much.

Question Re: Share a tip! (a feel good thread!) :)

Hi All!

I know that your time is valuable, so I’ll get right to the point.

I need your advice to help launch my first business! [/B]I am a stay at home Mom looking to make a little income on the side.

I’m putting the finishing touches on a new product called “Learn How to Make Hair Accessories”, and I want to make sure that I don’t leave anything out.

So, will you let me know your biggest question is about making your own fashionable hair accessories? It could be anything…. even if you think it’s silly.

All you have to do is go to the Google Form below and post your question in the comments.

In exchange for your advice, if you also leave your email address, I’ll send you a FREE COPY OF MY PRODUCT before we release it to the market. (Should be ready in the next 30 days)

Below is the easy form:

What is your #1 question about how to make headbands?

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/19e9...oVw_I/viewform

Thank you very much for helping make the best “Learn How to Make Hair Accessories” resource possible.

Let's get crafting!
Samantha
