I am so exciting to be joining these wonderfully crafty ladies for the Red Hatter's Blog Hop. If you happened upon my blog and want to join in on the fun, hop over to the start... Dusti over at Scrappin with Cricut.
So I have to say I did not know what a Red Hatter was when I joined in. I did a little web seaching and friend asking and more web searching thanks to a site Dusti sent me and now I don't feel so young, left out and alittle more informed. Part of joining in on these is to learn new things and I have definetly learned something new!
You probably want to see my project..right?!?
Here it is...I made a mini Hat Box with 4 mini "friend" cards
My project started with a 4" mini wood box. I painted the box with white acrylic paint and used fire brick distress ink on the top and sides. When all was dry I mod podged my sentiment and hat to the lid.
They as well as all the stamps came from Whimsy Doodle Graphics. How cute are they!?! I attached purple ribbon to the box and decorated with cooradinating paper. (I just realized I don't have a picture of the outer lid to show you..sorry)
For the cards I cut 4 circle cards at 3.75. I welded 2 together for each card and used the circle cut from George and Basic Shapes. Once I had all my cards cut out the fun began...decorating them :)
Part of the digi cuts from Whimsy Doodle Graphics was these cute ladies. I cut them out and colored over the purple which came out after I printed it a blue/purple. It didn't match any of my paper..nothing alittle marker couldn't fix :)
I had made some skittles not too long ago in watermelon and came across them again. They were used as well as some basic purple ribbon. The second card is the flower cut from again Geoge and Basic Shapes in 3 different shapes. I stamped the red petals with a Stampin Up flower stamp..just to give it alittle more..
Theses notes are cut the same size as the others with again matching papers. The flowers are Prima flowers with a sparkly red brad attached in the middle. Finally the red hat is a cut from PDDU. I just attached the ribbon and a purple button.
Inside each card is a different sentiment stamped. They say..Always Friends, Thinking of You, Just Because and Hello Friend.
So this is my project. I hope you all liked my interpritation of the Red Hatter's. I had a blast making this and hoped you all enjoyed seeing my pictures.
