Rowlux Party Crowns by Hydrangea Hippo

My good friend Jennifer from Hydrangea Hippo facilitated a Girl Scouts crafting event based around the movie Frozen! All of the girls had an absolute blast making these COOL (pun totally intended) Rowlux Crowns! In case you’ve been living under a rock or a glacier for that matter, Rowlux is 100% my absolute favorite crafting material in the universe! Check out these fun video tutorials on how to make these beautiful crowns and click HERE to order Rowlux for your next party project! It comes in 12″ x 12″ sheets in over 30 different colors/patterns so whether your party is COOL or HOT there’s a Rowlux to suit your special occasion!

In this video, featuring shots from the Girl Scouts crafting event, Jennifer shows you how to make the crown using a Sizzix die cutting machine:

 You can also create them by hand with a hobby knife as seen in the video below. However, if you plan on making a whole bunch for a party, using the Sizzix die cut machine is much faster!
