These barrettes are about 2.5″ inches wide. You can leave off the largest flower from the set of 3 that is cut by the die in order to make a smaller hair clip. This is what the full size flower barrette looks like in the hair:

You can also clip these onto straws or napkins to dress up the table for a barbecue. Since they are red, white, and blue, you can use them over and over again for other patriotic holidays like Labor Day, Memorial Day, and Veteran's Day. I feel like these look a little like the patriotic bunting we see around patriotic holidays.
