  1. Oh this is too cute. I was a girl so I can make a tiara for her. I guess I could just convert it into a kings crown can't I?

    1. Oh, yes, Sara . . . I think it would GREAT on a boy. WHat I would probably do is change the picots on the top of the shell to one, instead of three . . then it won't be so busy.

      Princesses always seem "busier" than princesses :-}
