Lace Headband with flower and tutorial

I've been making stuff for my children and for myself, but I didn't get a chance to post it early in this blog. Been busy with kids and household chores. Anyway, I made this lace headband for my two girls. It is very easy to make.

All you need is  10 white (any color) petals ( I got mine from the Dollar Tree store) for $1.
30 inches lace ( I got mine from goodwill and I paid probably a penny for it)
Glue gun
felt circle
Needle and tread

How to:

Use the felt circle and apply glue on top. Get five petals and arrange the tip of the petal face down on the glue until it dry. Apply glue again on the top of the first petal set and this time use only four petals to glue on top facing the right side. The last petal make a yoyo circle to use as the middle of the flower then glue it on the top of the flower. Then glue it on to the lace and you are done. Very easy takes you probably 5 minutes to make.

Nook Tablet Holder tutorial

My husband got me an eReader last Christmas and it didn't come with a holder or sleeve  ;-). I looked around for the holder and sleeve but the prices is just ridiculous. I will not pay $35 for a holder and $29 for a nook sleeve. Well I got a solution for that and it did cost me anything since I already have all the materials to make it. I asked my husband to cut the wood for me though.
 Material that I used: Wood (picture 45degree angle), glue and a glue gun/stick, and fabric ( I used fat quarter) and scissor. All you have to do is glue it all around the wood and you may cut some extra parts that are not necessary.

  •  This is what it look like after you glue every thing. It took me half an hour to finish it.

  •  Even the back is covered. Oppps! the I missed the sides.

  • Here is the finished product. It cost me half an hour to make.
