All I did was make a pattern and use the rotary cutter (you can also use scissors) to cut out two of the crown. I then attached the design to the front crown. Next I attached each side with elastic covered with fabric. I sewed all around the crown to join the front and back and then I was done! I will be making seven crowns (I only currently have two crowns completely finished) and the total cost of the crowns will be under five dollars!
