Thanks for posting this! Those are so cute I just had to make some. I didn't have any bedazzler studs, so I used snap fasteners (a socket and a prong) and sewed a tiny bead in the socket hole.

When I make my ribbon headbands I use the fraycheck but then I also fold the edges over and sew them down-- I also usually sew the elastic on. I use my sewing machine but it would be really quick and easy to sew them by hand too. I use wider elastic too. Seems to hold up better-- I have a big head and it stresses the small elastic, haha... I made some with studs but I used the Dritz brand- you could probably also use the "punk" studs like pyraminds, cones, etc. that all the fellas put on their jackets. I thought it would be really cool to use the ones they (Bedazzler) made of little western pistols, but they stopped making them and the only ones I've seen are like $2.00 for two of them... BLAH.
*Has anyone tried to make these using any type of glues? I was wondering if a strong fabric glue would hold up well.   Undecided

Dolly Parton is my spiritual leader, and Clint Eastwood is my sewing buddy.

I absolutely love the flame ribbon. I always thought I looked like a huge dweeb in headbands, but I just might have to try making some of these anyway...

Where do I get the ribbon?  I read this post last night and was so excited about it I went to Hobby Lobby and Joann Fabrics but I could only find wired ribbon.  Help!

you can pull the wire out of the wired stuff. and voila you have regular ribbon Smiley
