Howdy, crafters and scrappers and welcome to The Cherry On Top.
I've designed quite an extensive Halloween project for you and thought it might be worth it to come over to the bloggo and type out a really nice, step by step tutorial for our witch hat paper template found in Kreative Design Studio (AKA The Cherry On Top) at Design Bundles.
I've also revamped our Patronus Collection and renamed it, Wizard World. If you are totally into wizardry, wizard school or things related to Harry Potter, then you might just love it.
Here's a pretty good look at our witch hat. It took me nearly 15 hours to design, assemble, photograph, etc. I used our Meow-A-Ween Collection from Plus. Don't be thrown off thinking it will take up all of your ink. Not at all! I'll show ya an image of the printables and you'll see that all of that black is really just a few strips. The bottom of my witch hat is a 12x12 piece of good, black card stock.
Above, you can see how I put the hat in a tray. I love this idea! I can easily move the hat around and I'll be able to put all kinds of autumn stuff around it or candy corn, sweets, acorns, leaves, pine cones...whatever. Even though I used cheap paper, it was easy to move this way.
Keep in mind, though these are not boxes, you can totally place things under each layer. Especially, if you use more rigid paper when printing.
This is what the layer looks like when it's all put together. I've got tabs all around the strips which makes this project very, very easy to assemble. I watched a couple of videos and one lady didn't have tabs, but some kick ass glue. What she did was glue all round the base or top if you will, then took the strip and circled the base and then...hehehe...she used a small trip of paper as a means to close off the strip. I did the same, but with tape. I taped the closures around the entire strip, from top to bottom. Both inside and outside. It makes the project a lot more rigid. Just using sturdy paper will help, too.
