I made this headband with strips from the Sunday morning comics. There is one strip for each comic. Marmaduke ended up with two (opps)! Anyways, I <3 it very much! Do you?

Adorable!

If it wouldn't be too much of a hassle, could you explain how you made it?

That is sweet!!

How do you protect the comics from damp hair or hair products? Is it lacquered or something?

Thanks guys!

It is pretty easy to make. I just striped off the fabric of one of my old headbands and was careful to save the part that keeps it from hurting your head. Then I cut strips of paper from the comics and mod podged them onto the headband. Coat it with modpodge several times to make sure it is sealed then spray with Krylon crystal clear gloss. From what i have tested with bracelets, etc. this makes it pretty much water proof. Next I hot glued the piece I saved onto the headband and that's it.

dropoffradar - That's a good idea but the Krylon spray is basically water proof I think you would literally have to soak the object in water for hours and then deliberately try to mess it up.  Grin I know this cause i coated a bracelet several times then decided I didn't like it and tried to take it off. It didn't work. Plus the Krylon spray makes it super shiny and smooth!  Cheesy
