Two dear friends (Wendy from AllAboutRibbon & Amanda from DivaOnDemand) gave me the greatest idea to make these 18" doll tiaras! As you can see in the photo below they are shaped like an 18" doll headband but smaller. To make a tiara wrap the crownband in 3/8's inch ribbon. String beads of your choice on wire and secure on to the crownband. Glue the small size marabou around the outside of the band.
Amanda of DivaOnDemand came up with a Fancy Nancy style crown using some of the swirl ribbon from AllAboutRibbon. She put some really fun appliques and rhinestone goodies in her design! Perhaps with enough encouragement we can get Amanda to write a tutorial!
I only purchased a sample order of the crown bands and they are available on the web site (located under the catagories of Headbands, at the bottom) www.punchplaceplus.com .
