Girly Hat Gift Box ~ by Chantel Schroeder

Hi everyone,

Chantel here from ChansCraftyThings.  It's been a while since I've done any paper crafting so to get me back into the swing of things, I decided to make this super cute (and super easy) little hat from Fleurette Bloom's awesome new kit - Hooked on fishing.  

It's such a fun kit with so many great elements for guys of all ages!  That said, I decided to put a girly spin on it to show you just how versatile this kit really is!

I cut and assembled the hat pieces as per instructions on the easy to follow PDF file included with the kit.   I was going for a more natural look so didn't want the edges to be perfectly straight.  So once I added the hat rim, and while the glue was still a little wet, I curled the edges between my thumb and forefingers in a few places. Once the glue dried properly, the curves were set perfectly. 
I didn't cut any of the accent pieces for the hat as I wanted to decorate it with some flowers instead.  I used the medium spiral roses from the New "Lush Flowers" 3D SVG Collection to make both the flowers.  I just scaled the one down slightly and cut them out of different coordinating papers to create some interest.

Finally, I added a couple of leaves from the same kit, some Kaisercraft pearls, and viola... it was ready to be filled with little treats.

I had a great time making this little hat and changing it up a bit.  Such a perfect little gift for any occasion.  I do hope you like  it too!

Thanks for stopping by!
