DISNEY PARTY Guest Post: Sofia the First Hair Clip Tutorial

Welcome back to our Disney Party! If this is your first visit to A Peek Into My Paradise, we are partying Disney-Style the month of August. I have an awesome group of ladies joining me this month sharing their Disney tips, recipes, crafts, collections and anything Disney! I hope your a follower so you don’t miss a post this month. If not, my social media buttons are in the sidebar on the right. I hope you will invite your friends and shout out there is a Disney party going on at A Peek Into My Paradise for the month of August! I encourage you to comment and share your Disney tips and stories each day as we explore the Wonderful World of Disney.

Let’s party…..

I’m so excited to be guest blogging for Cathy again today!  I’m Stephanie from The TipToe Fairy where I like to share a bit of everything from crafts and sewing projects to book reviews to recipes — especially cupcake recipes. One can never have too many cupcake recipes.  After checking out this fun tutorial, click on one of the buttons below, if you’d like to find out more about The TipToe Fairy and me.

In honor of Disney Month over here at A Peek Into My Paradise I’m back to share again. I hope you enjoyed the Minnie Mouse Cupcake Tutorial I shared on Monday! I have brought y’all a fun and easy tutorial.This is just perfect for a little girl’s first trip to Disney.  It’s a ribbon sculpture hair clip of Sofia the First!  She can be worn on a hair clip or glued to a headband.  In this tutorial, I’m making her for a hair clip.

I love making these little ribbon sculptures.  They are such fun!  My little preschooler loves Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First right now, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to share with y’all how to make one of them as a ribbon sculpture.
