New Year’s Eve Headband Directions
Cut Your Files on the Cricut
Upload your files to Cricut Design Space and resize:
- 2020: Set height to 4.387″
- Pop Fizz Clink: set height to 3.825″
Cut out your headband decorations using your Cricut. Remember to change your material setting if you’re using a thicker cardstock.
Assemble Your Headbands
Once you have all of your pieces cut, you’ll notice that each of the cutouts has a tab on the bottom. Fold the tabs around the headband and glue using a hot glue gun. Leave about 1/2″ of space below the letters so they will sit above the tissue paper fringe.
If there is an extra amount of tab after gluing, use scissors to cut off the excess amount.
Next cut a sheet of tissue paper in half. Fold that in half once more, then again once more. You will have a long sheet of tissue paper creating a “V” channel for your headband to eventually sit inside.
Cut fringe into the non-folded side of the folded tissue paper.
Based on the size of your cutout, trim the tissue paper fringe down to size.
Open the tissue paper channel created for the headband. Hot glue to the bottom, under side of the headband.
After everything is glued, fluff the fringes to help hide the tabs that hold the cutout to the headband.
Don your cute New Year’s Eve party headband and you’re ready to watch the ball drop, glass of champagne in hand!
