HAHAHA! i love the alien head idea! 

thanks, dulcet!  you are correct, the headband for cheebz is a felt dahlia.  here is the tutorial i used:

here is another, just in case someone wants to see it explained a different way:

as for the one for jnny_heck, i had a scrap of pretty upholstery fabric.  it was minty blue with flowers, so i cut a couple of them out, added a bunch of bead embellishments around it (bugles, matte, shiny, etc) and then layered  the pieces.  it was fun!  i'm just glad my partners liked 'em--i didn't want them to be too crazy and unwearable...or fall apart during shipping!

and lastly, my headband from cheebz!  it's a really neat headband. she used a thick, heavyweight ivory cardstock type paper and cut it into a detailed feather shape.  to give it effect the edges are ombre dyed a pretty blue.  what you can't see in the photo is the white detailing on the feathers to give it texture, but believe me it's there!  thanks for the pretty headband, cheebz, it's really pretty!
here is a picture of me wearing it, unfortunately this is the only shot that came out with enough detail of the feathers.  the sun kept bleaching out the picture making the feathers look like bright white blobs on my head, but this one gives a good idea of how cool it is:

the paper got a little rumpled during shipping, but that is an easy fix since cheebz provided instructions!


i hope my partners get theirs soon...eeeep!
