I am so excited to share with everyone what I have been working on all month! I wanted to do a fun project that I could give to all the nieces and nephews for Halloween. I just couldn't think of anything I wanted to do. I was reading along on Carrie's Blog one day and found this great post! She does a photo tutorial on how she created this adorable witches hat!

Well I started working on this project at the beginning of the month. I spent one Saturday morning cutting everything out and scoring all my hats. I have 9 that I wanted to make so I had a lot to cut. Carrie used this great punch for the buckle and it looks so cute! Unfortunately I do not have that punch so I had to cut all of mine out by hand. This was probably what took the longest out of everything.
I started with a plain black hat. Then I stamped Candy Corn on the green paper and punched out stars from that. They turned out so cute! Next I added the belt and buckle. I punched a hole using my cropadile in the top to thread the ribbon through. Then it was time to fill them!
I filled them with Starbursts, Dum Dums, Chrunch Bars and Twix! MMMMMMM
After all the candy was in I got this great purple and green ribbon to close them with! The boys got the Green and the girls got Purple ribbon. Then I realized I needed a tag so I stamped my saying on white paper. Then stamped the spider web over the top as a background.
I was told they would arrive today!! We will see! I got to give out 3 of them yesterday and everyone was so excited! I'm so happy with how they all turned out! I love Halloween and I hope everyone enjoys theirs!
