Paper Princess

I love crowns, to make then, to wear them and to give them as gifts.  I think this stems from my childhood and wanting to be a princess. Now that I am an adult, I no longer want to be a princess (I can save my own self, thank you very much), but my love of wearing a crown has never gone away. I created these crowns for two of my friends. They like to dress up as much as I do.

These crowns are constructed out of paper making them very light weight and easier to wear. Each was painted in this bronze metallic color.

I cut out a crescent moon and added the fine silver glitter. Some paper flowers, butterflies, and long steamers of ribbon for were added for that touch of extra princessness.

These are beautiful, as always. I'm just finishing a couple of the six-pocket purses you featured here awhile back--great gifts!
