Happy New Year!
Today’s project is a super simple New Years Top Hat – with just the right amount of bling!
The top hat pattern is courtesy of the Graphic 45 blog (CLICK HERE for the pattern)
I wanted my top hat to be black – but I can’t print the pattern onto the black cardstock or I wouldn’t be able to see it. I printed the pattern onto white paper and then switched out my MyStik™ Permanent Strips Refill for my MyStik™ Repositionable Dots Refill. I adhered the pattern to the black paper using the MyStik™ Repositionable Dots.
Next, I cut out the three pieces.
Once cut out, I carefully peeled off the white paper – which left the MyStik™ Repositionable Dots residue on the black pieces. I simply rubbed the residue with my finger until it quickly and easily rubbed off without a trace!
I assembled the top hat using the MyStik™ Permanent Strips. Once assembled, I used the Crafty Power Tape around the hat to adhere the decorative fabric trim.
Next, I stamped the banner and sentiment and made the blue flower. For the glittery star, I used Adhesive Sheets that had been adhered to cardstock, and then punched the star shape out. I peeled the backing off and applied the glitter.
The last step is to adhere all the embellishments using Foam Squares. For this project, I used the Black Foam Squares since they would blend seamlessly with the hat.
Happy New Years everyone!
