Simple Springtime Butterfly Hair Clips

Butterfly-hair-clips-Crafts-Unleashed-1

Springtime is such a lovely time. The flowers are starting to show themselves, birds are singing, and before you know it – butterflies will start to flutter around the garden.

She loves all sorts of hair accessories, and so I knew that she would be thrilled if I made her hair clips. What’s wonderful is that {Read More}
