A Bridal Shower and a Crown

My only newphew is getting married next month to the lovely Kristie. I went to their bridal shower last Sunday and I made her this bride crown to wear during her shower. I covered a headband with strips of paper then covered a crown shape with dark pink polka dotted scrapbook paper glued to poster board. I then covered the scrapbook paper with a thin layer of gel medium and imbedded this piece of old lace to the crown and cut around the shape of the lace to form the shape to the top of the crown. I finished it by adding chipboard letters covered in German pure silver ground glass glitter and black velvet floral ribbon around the bottom and added individual flower pieces of the floral ribbon cut apart and glued in each point on the top of the crown. I was happy with the results. A close-up of the crown is below.
