Today is Day 2 of week full of tutorials over at Scor-Pal. I decided to make a witches hat that holds all of magic of Halloween's past.
Various Halloween themed designer paper
lots of Halloween embellishments
Wild Orchid flowers
black card stock
white card stock (for making a template)
We need to start by making our template for the top of the witches hat (by the way....this would make a great Santa's hat also!). I created a triangle that is 8 1/2" tall and 4" wide at the base. Trace one triangle onto a piece of 12" x 12" piece of card stock. Then trace a triangle on each side and create a 1/2" lip on each side. Trace one more free standing triangle.
Trace your template onto black card stock, score and cut out. Adhere 1/8" score-tape to the lips on each side and attach free standing triangle.
You will now have a square cone that will be the top of the witches hat. Decorate all nice and fancy.
Next, create a box for the inside of the hat that measures 5 3/4" square, score 1" on each side to create a box that will hold an accordion of photos.
Now we will create the accordion that will hold your photos. Cut four strips of paper 3 5/8" x 11", score one side at 3 5/8", turn the paper over and on the opposite side of the first score, score again at 3 5/8". You will have a strip of paper with a mountain score on one side and a valley score on the other. 3 5/8" is where the first arrow is on the top fence of your Scor-Pal. Attach the four strips together, as shown above to create an accordion.
Attach the accordion to the inside of the square box.
The brim of the witches hat is a 10 1/2" circle cut from chipboard. I painted the circle with Distress Ink, Black Soot. I attached black tulle in a circle to the chipboard and then attached the box on top of that.
I hope you enjoyed my project. Stop by Scor-Pal all this week to see what the other designer have created!
