Hope you're enjoying your weekend! I am! I was able to sleep in and it's the beginning of Spring Break!!! Yeah!!
I wanted to share a little project that I made for Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock.
It's a leprechaun hat that you can fill up with goodies and place on your table for that festive St. Patty's party you might be having.
I used some green card stock from the Vintage collection :
- made some scored lines which I then sanded;
- using a pair of scissors I then made slits along one of the long sides (all across - these are the glue tabs for adhering to the lower section of hat)
- then rolled it into a circular shape for the top section of the hat.
I cut out a rectangle shaped piece of gold coloured Glitter Silk card stock. I then cut out a rectangle shape from the inside as well - to create the buckle design.
I used some Black Magic card stock and cut a long strip which I then embossed using a chevron embossing folder, sanded the image and adhered around the circular tube.
I used a heart shaped punch and punched out a bunch of hearts from the same card stock. I then embossed each of those hearts, sanded them and adhered them overtop of a punched out circle shape to create a 4-leaf clover. I adhered a button to the center of each clover design.
The bottom circle section of the hat I used a bone folder to gently bend the edges of the hat.
