Okay, I have a bk crown.  Can I ask what adjustment you made to the crown itself to get your crowns shape?  Smiley

Basically all I did was cut along the inside of the curve so that I trimmed off the bumps at the 'point' of the BK crown. - I placed my point at the middle of the intersection of the three 'bumps.' -

Once I had the first one trimmed, I traced it to make a pattern, cut it out, and used it to trim the other 'points' so that they would be consistent.

The first crown I made was a bit snug but that is because I trimmed off the straps that BK uses to hook the crown and make it adjustable. To compensate on the next one I cut an extra point and taped it to the end.

Does that make sense?

sewable jewels are also much safer. I love the entire project. Bet your kids get invited to lots of parties.
If you ever want to change color of your laces-in stash- you can spray with the stuff they sell to spray paint flowers. Let it soak in , say red, dry, then you can spray with gold etc. and it seems to hold better, and not crack.
However, I think the white was perfect in this case

yeah that makes sense.  I cut off the side points, now I just have to cut off the three bumps at the top. thank you. Smiley
