I made this fabulous top hat out of chipboard,foam core and cardstock. I used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells 12x12 paper pad. I scrap lifted this idea from Anne, Thanks for the idea and instuctions. I am not quite finished embellishing yet but wanted to get it on my blog. I will update with a finished photo hopefully by the end of next week.

Here is a Halloween wreath I made. I first wrapped my styrofoam wreath in some random black & white fabric I had leftover from another project. I used orange and black cardstock and some Tim Holtz Halloween Haunts paper. I used the Close To My Heart cricut cartridge and cut out several different size flower shapes. Then I used a the Close To My Heart wicked stamp and Tim Holtz stamps to stamp on the cardstock flowers. I also inked all the edges of the flowers with Sunset ink from Close To My Heart. Next I embellished my wreath with with some Halooween brads,black and white chevron stripe paper straws from Queen & Co. and I inked those with sunset also. I then added some wooden buttons and some of Tim Holtz accessiries such as the clock key etc... I also made a bow from some black & white skull ribbon from Michaels (not shown).
