Cutting Felt with the Cricut Explore!

I couldn't wait to try and make Evie some cute little headbands!  I mean does it get any sweeter than this?

But once I started, I couldn't stop!  I mean seriously!!!  I had to make one in every color!

And then I found MORE colors and had to make some more!  I'm not even finished with all the colors yet!  I think Miss Evie is all set for awhile!

I don't think she minds. :)    I made these with the Cricut Explore and some felt backed with Heat N Bond! (Products listed below).  It was so super simple and fast.  I am thinking I need hair clip bows for when she's a little older, headband bows/flowers, ponytail holders.   Heck even, planner clips.  

The Cricut and Felt work well together.  I couldn't believe how well the Cricut cut the bonded felt.

Here's a tutorial if you'd like to make the bows, too!  These are selling for $3-4 a piece on Etsy.. and seriously, cost me a few cents each.
