Hello Maja Design fans and friends!  Nancy Hanttula here, back again to share another project with all of you!  A crown fit for my little princess, created with the gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics collection.

I won’t lie, I am tired of Christmas, Winter, and the cold & icy weather. And as my son would say, “yeah, I said it”, I just had to break into the gorgeous Vintage Spring Basics collection to remind me of the beautiful Spring we have to look forward to….all the dainty blooms and colors of such a miraculous season.


I also have this “Fancy Nancy” 6 year old daughter.  She has a naturally embellished, creative personality.  She makes doll houses out of boxes, prize ribbons out of paper, & pleated, rose painted fans for her spectacular tea parties. AND she needed a crown.

So, after she came home one day with a simple cardboard crown from Burger King, I knew just what to do.

I traced it.


Embellished it.
