Impromptu Kanzashi Hair Comb

Kanzashi Flowers are a Japanese process of using fabric squares to make flowers, often used for weddings.  Kanzashi flowers are always great way to use up fabric scraps. 

I did this project in about 15 minutes before work one day.

Here I'm starting with some squares I cut from the scraps of my Halloween costume

Fold Once, into a triangle

Fold Twice, into a smaller triangle

Fold Three, into an even smaller triangle, and vola a flower petal

Glue down 4 onto a hair comb

YAY, cute new Hair comb.

Ok there's still a little bit of work I need to do on it.  Can still see the metal on the hair comb, and it has problems staying in the hair in loose hair.  But I'm sure with a little bit more time and more creativity this project can be refined to a wonderful product
