Hello to all my lovely followers on my blog.  I have not been able to craft as much as I would have liked to this year.  It has been challenging on a personal level and things have been tough. As a family we have risen above everything thrown at us over the last year and stuck together as a unit. So, hoping 2017 will be kinder to us!

On a lighter note, I bring you this Top Hat cutting file project from the Pazzles Craft Room.  This particular project is from the recently launched Party Hats Cutting Collection.

Party Hat Cutting Collection

 As you know I love creating 3D projects and this afternoon while the house was relatively quiet I dusted off my Pazzles and made this Top Hat project.



I did make some adjustments to the project.  I wanted the Top Hat to be open and not include the lid as in the original cutting file.  I made some quick adjustments using my software.  I also found that I needed to add several more tabs so that I could get a better curved shape to the hat as you will see in the screen shot above.

I also made the band around the hat a bit wider (1" in width) so that the bow sat better on the band above the rim. These are all minor amendments but a personal preference to satisfy the perfectionist side of me!

I created the numbers using one of the Miss Kate Cuttables cutting files available to members of the Pazzles Craft Room.  I omitted all the detailed in-lines, and just kept the outline as I was cutting the numbers out of thick gold shimmer card.  I then attached them to some flower wire and stuck them into a blob of Blue Tac inside the base of  the hat!  I did in fact add a smaller circular base to the bottom of the hat just to give it more rigidity. Finally, I cut myself a bit of paper shredding.

Happy to be back at home in my craftroom,  I am off to prepare another project before I have to taxi my kids to and from various New Years Eve parties this evening!  
The glorious life of a mum with 3 kids!
