Band (also known as football) season is getting ready to launch so Fall must be just around the corner. If this weren’t enough to convince me, the tree across the street has already begun to turn. So, it’s time to turn some of my attention to Fall themed creations.
I pulled out some of my new pre-order goodies and played with a favorite from the annual catalog – the Cutie Pie Thinlits.
If you’re into Halloween, you’re going to love this Witch Hat favor.
I cut the cone of the hat from Basic Black cardstock using the Cutie Pie Thinlits. After adhering the two pieces together along one long tab (use Tear and Tape for this), I used the Molten Embossing technique I shared in a video yesterday.
Here’s a quick tip for cutting with the Cutie Pie Thinlits:
You can get three sides from one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock (1 1/2 boxes). Cut a 6 x 8 1/2 piece and make two cuts from this piece by positioning the thinlit as shown below. You’ll get one cut from the remaining piece.
After assembling the cake slice, I added some of the new White Glitter ribbon (139614) to make a hat band. Then, I added an Everyday Chic designer paper brim. I cut the designer paper and a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the largest plain circle from the Circles Collection Thinlits. Layer the designer paper circle over the Basic Black circle. These were attached to the opening of the box with glue dots.
After bending the top of the hat, I punched a hole with the 1/16″ handheld punch and threaded it with a piece of Silver Cording Trim (139620). Then, I added my tag from Cheer All Year (139839).
Here’s a quickie video on creating the shaped tag:
