Tomorrow is going to be a busy, busy day of Halloween FUN! First, we start our day off with a Halloween-themed 10K race in the morning. The best part? We get to dress up! My two running buddies and I are going as Three Blind Mice (...see how they run... LOL, get it?). The Hubs will be The Fox.
After the race, The Hubs and I are attending a Pumpkin Carving Party and then I have a Witch-themed jewelry party to go to in the evening. Phew! It'll be a little hectic jumping from one thing to another, but so much fun!
For the jewelry party, we were all asked to wear a witch hat. But I didn't want to walk into the party with the same hat as someone else! *gasp* That would be a travesty! So I decided to (kinda) make my own.
Now, I have to give my Mom major kudos for this one. I had called her about my idea for my headband hat and she kept her eye out for fun stuff while she was out shopping. In one shopping trip, she found two headbands (one black with black sparkly tulle, and one with the fancy green hat on it) that would work PERFECT for my project. And they were around $5 each. Score!
After cutting off some tulle from the hat and merging the two headbands together, all I had to do was add a bit of purple using MCT's Rolled Flower Dies and I was set!
Tip: If you have single-sided patterned paper (one side is plain white), but you want a design on the inside and outside of the rolled flower, simply cut the flower out twice in the two patterns you want. On the second cut, FLIP the paper over so you're cutting it out upside down. (First cut: patterned side up; Second cut: patterned side down). Then, glue your cuts together with the patterned sides showing. Now you'll have double-sided paper flowers!
I can't wait to show off my fancy hat at the party tomorrow! Head on over to Emma's blog to see what the rest of the designers have in store for the last day of Halloween Hustle.
I hope you were inspired!
