First, gather your supplies. You'll need patterned paper, a heart punch (this is a 1.5" heart punch from American Crafts), yellow ribbon, scissors, sewing machine with thread, and a hot glue gun.

Punch three hearts from each patterned paper. The finished headband looks best if the papers are double-sided.

Gather the hearts into their piles of three then straight stitch each stack together, one right after another.

Here's what your headband should look like at this point. Don't worry if the gaps between each heart are uneven, you can fix the spacing when hot gluing.

Bend up each heart to create dimension.

Hot glue ribbon to the back of the hearts, leaving about 4" at each end for tying.

You could coordinate the papers to match with a variety of events.

Such as weddings, Easter, Christmas, birthday parties, favorite outfits, Valentine's Day, and more!

You could even try using a different shaped punch like a flower, star, circle, diamond, hexagon, and more!

Granted this didn't last on her head longer than 15 seconds, but maybe someday she'll like wearing headbands again like when she was an infant.
