Witch Hat- SOUS- Die Cut Challenge

Happy Halloween! Today I have a project to share with you that I made for the Die Cut Challenge at SOUS. The challenge is to use any Halloween themed die cut. It was more work than I originally thought to do this hat, but I made it through and I'm super happy with the results! :)


The hat I believe is from Michaels, but I could be mistaken on that. I started off by applying the paper to the form. I used a collection from Bo Bunny called Fright Delight as well as some odds and ends of other papers I had in my stash. I cut strips of paper, wet them slightly and then applied then using mod podge. A little hint if you're going to attempt this project....work in small sections and then dry immediately with a dryer. That way you can press the paper into the creases and around the edges. I found this worked really well. Putting on the strips of paper took a long time, but the effort was well worth it.

 



I used some dies that I cut out with my Silhouette. This little skeleton key was just perfect to put behind the skull.

 
I also cut out this spider web and the word Wicked. I put on some stickles to make them pop and then tucked them behind the bow and flower. Another little hint for you....Be careful hot gluing the embellishments on! You don't want to take off a layer of skin like I did! LOL! But again...so worth it! :)

Hope you enjoyed my little project and don't forget to link your die cut entries on the SOUS blog!

I have a few burnt spots on my hands from my own hot glue. Yep, in the end it's totally worth it. I am AMAZED by this! It is OUTSTANDING and I want to make one for myself. Thanks for taking the time cause the results really are a beautiful project.
