ICS Blog Hop Giving Thanks

Today the crew from "Inspire, Create & Share" Blog Hop is going to share projects with "Giving Thanks" in mind. It's fitting since Thanksgiving is just around the corner...

I will be sharing my project and a short video on the technique, so if you get my blog updates by email, please click on over to my blog so you can see it all!

Here is my pilgrim hat card:

And the inside is a gift card/note holder:

Oh, in case you are wondering, yes this hat card will fit in a regular invitation size envelope!

How to get the hat shape:
You start out with a piece of CS that's 3 3/4 by 11 and fold in in half.
Then you'll measure in 1/2 inch on the top from both sides and make a little mark.
Take your paper trimmer and align the left dot and the left bottom corner on the cutting track and cut! Then repeat for the right side.
Edges were sponged in Early Espresso.
The brim is a piece of CS that's 4 1/4 by 1, sponged as well..

Here is a visual:

And here is a close up on the hat band, which used the faux suede/leather technique:

The technique is very easy. You just pull the cardstock across your bonefolder until the fibers of the cardstock start to break and the layers separate... here is the quick video:

Thank you for stopping by!

Now, please hop on over to Megan Thompson and see what she has to offer:
