Erica's Craft Room - 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Cartridge Hop
Welcome to
My Cricut Craft Room's
100 Cartridge Blog Hop!
     If you're here from Amber's blog (http://pixiperfectcreations.blogspot.com/) you're in the right place, if you just stopped by come join us from the beginning.
     I used Pooh and Friends, Elmo's Party and Wild Card to make this fun personalized party hat! The hat was cut from Elmo's Party (6.65"), Piglet and his shadow are from Pooh and Friends (4.09") and Ashleigh is cut using the font on Wild Card (2.02"). I used my gypsy to weld the letters together.
     To create the fringe on the hat I took a sheet or tissue paper and folded it accordion style (like you would if you're making a paper fan or rosette). Then I stapled it along one edge and used my scissors to fringe it on the other.
     Before assembling the hat I used my ATG to apply a line of adhesive on the inside of the hat. I stuck the tissue paper along the edge doing my best to keep it even all around. For the fringe at the top I cut off a small piece from my line of fringe (about 1" long) and rolled  it up. After cutting a little off the top of the hat I glued the rolled up fringe in place.
     I used my paper piercer to make two holes on the sides of the hat, after it was assembled, and strung some stretchy cord through. Make sure to measure this with your child's head. I just guessed and when I put it on my daughter it was a little tight!
     Thank you for stopping by I'd love the hear what you think of my project and have you become a follower. You're next, and last stop for today, is Erica's Blog Candy

ADORABLE Party Hat Idea, Tonya!!! Very cute!! I will definitely be trying this out!!
I am SOOO EXCITED about this 100 Cartridge Blog Hop giveaway This would be a GREAT start to my collection of cartridges, as I just recently purchased the E2 & am in dire need of cartridges!!! I purchased the Everyday Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for myself for Christmas. Other than that, I only have the 2 that came preloaded into my new E2. I have a LONG way to go!
THANK YOU for your consideration!
