Versatile Headbands & Giveaway Day #1

This week we are celebrating our Blog-iversary (or is it Blog-aversary?). We are giving away a number of items throughout the week, so make sure to stop by every day to enter the new giveaways :) 

I've been working on streamlining my headband making process-so that almost every flower/bow is interchangeable with every headband. I decided to make two different series: original size and mini size.
 Here is a little explanation on my assembly process. I use two pieces of felt and attach the snaps with a snap wrench thingy  (I'm pretty sure that's what it's called) then I hot glue the felt onto the bottom of the flower (or bow). The double layer of felt gives extra stability for the snaps...because they'll be pulled on a lot when switching your flower to a bow, or vice versa :)
A blank headband with multiple options to snap onto it.
Orange Cream Dream flower and Black Diamond Headband
Silver Cocoa Flower and Chocolate Headband

Brown Ruler Flower and Tan Headband
Large Aqua Flower and Lilac Headband

Pink and Silver Flower and Black Diamond Headband
Here is the Mini Blossom series: This line only uses one small snap, and the headbands are narrower.

We are giving away one set of Mini Blossoms (3 headbands with 5 bows) and one set of Original Size (still looking for a better name) (2 headbands with 3 large flowers/bows). All you need to do is leave one comment telling me what your favorite color is and what size of headband you would want if you win. You do not need to be a Stalker (follower) of to win today's giveaway, but I'd love for you to become a Stalker (follower) anyway :)

Sizes of headbands:
0-6 month
12-18 month

The winner will be announced next Monday (giveaway will be open until Sunday, August 12, at 10:00 pm MST). Good Luck! And remember to stop by every day the rest of this week for more giveaways!
