Welcome back to Maker Moments! Although I was off for a week (only on the blog), I did not slow down on creating. 🙂 I was inspired by a piece of packaging I saw and began to create this hat as a cool party favor. (It’s funny how I can’t remember when all my bills are due but I can definitely access all the dies that we have at Spellbinders when it comes to making. Lol!) Anyway, I hope you enjoy this quick tutorial on putting together a Halloween hat.
You will need the following supplies:
Black cardstock (or a black print, you choose!)
Ribbon and embellishments of your choice
Candy of your choice
Die-cut What’s the Point pieces from black cardstock. Adhere one of the sides together.
Choose one of the sides and die-cut a rectangle using the smallest rectangle from the Rectangles Nestabilities set. This will create the window. Hand-cut a piece of cellophane or plastic large enough to cover the rectangle. Adhere to inside of hat. Adhere the last side of the hat together. Insert candy and close lid. Die-cut a larger circle from black cardstock using the Circle Nestabilities set and adhere to bottom of hat. Die-cut a star from silver-glittered paper. Embellish hat with ribbon and doo-dahs.
*TIP: I purchased some of my decorative pieces from the cake decorating store. Super cute and inexpensive!
**TIP 2: You CAN die-cut a star for the window too! I used Seth Apter’s Star die and then again, cut enough cellophane to cover the space.
So there you have it! That didn’t take too long. I think they look so cute nestled together. What have you been up to? I would love to take a peek at your creativity!
