    Snow Princess Headband:
    Use wire cutters to remove shanks from the buttons you will be using.
    Cut several strips of ribbon from 2 inch to 4 inch long.
    Glue ribbons in a random pattern on to the headband. Make sure the ends are wrapped around the sides, or covered by another strip of ribbon. Add ribbon until you achieve desired look.
    Starting at the middle of the headband start gluing on your snowflakes. (Tip: make sure you check how it is fitting about half way. You don’t want the snowflakes to touch your ears.)

    Snowman Earmuffs:
    Use wire cutters to remove shanks from the buttons you will be using.
    Cut 2 lengths of ribbon as long as your headband. Glue one to the bottom and one to the top. Squeeze some glue just inside the edge of the two ribbons and pinch it together to seal the edges on both sides.
    Cut felt so you have two rectangles approximately 6 inch wide and 8 inch long.
    Fold each of the rectangles in half again so you have two small rectangles approximately 4 inch wide by 6 inch long.
    Trace your circle on one side of each folded square of felt. Make sure the bottom of each circle touches the folded edge of the rectangle.
    Do not cut the folded edge. Cut thru both sides of the folded felt around the circle with the pinking shears. When you open up the shape it should look something like a figure 8. The fold will connect both of your circles.
    Lay both of your felt 8 shapes out flat.
    Glue the craft boa in a spiral from the center on one circle from each 8.
    Try on your headband and place a small mark where you want the top of each earmuff to be. The non fuzzy circle should be at the bottom. Glue the fuzzy side of your circle to the outside of your headband. Make sure you line it up to your mark.
    Fold the non fuzzy circle around the end of the headband and glue to the inside. Make sure you line it up with the half on the outside.
    Repeat for other side.
    Hot glue buttons on earmuffs as desired.

    Snowman Headband:
    Project time does not include drying time for the glue.
    Use the wire cutters to remove the shanks from the buttons you will be using. (Tip: try the headband on before you start gluing to ensure the flowers are placed where you want them. The embellishments look best when they can be seen in front of one’s ears.)
    Coat the head band with the White glue using the paintbrush. You only need to cover the top and sides. The interior will not show.
    Completely cover the headband with glitter while the glue is still wet. Let glue dry.
    Make a loop flower by cutting six 2 inch strips out of your 5/8 inch ribbon. Fold over so the ends meet and it makes a looped teardrop shape. Hot glue the ends onto the back of a large snowflake.
    Make a pointed star flower by cutting five diamond shapes out of your fabric that are the size of your choice. Fold each side over and hot glue to the back of the fabric to give the diamond shapes some strength. Trim the points, if needed. Glue one pointed end of each petal to the back of a button.
    Make a fancy satin flower by cutting several teardrop shapes out of your 1-1/2 inch ribbon. Light the candle and hold the edges of the teardrop shapes over the flame until they are curled. Glue the ends of the petals to the back of a button. (Tip: you may find it easier to start with the smaller sized petals first.)
    Hot glue the flowers onto the headband, leaving about a half inch between each flower. Hot glue additional buttons on the headband as desired.
