Cherry Blossom Headband

Springtime is in the air and this pretty dimensional headband is sure to make any little girl feel special! Makins Clay requires no baking so it can be used on unexpected surfaces like a plastic headband, and it is very light weight and flexible so the finished piece is not too heavy to wear.
