Collector

Good Morning my Crafty Friends!  First off I want to apologize for not posting every day this week, I've been a bit under the weather I've actually missed work {GASP}!  Any who, today I am feeling somewhat better my gland isn't as swollen and my ear seems to not hurt so much.  Thank Goodness!!!!

Are you one of those people who collects things?  I am!  I collect magazines both paper and digital along with an array of other things....paper, embellishments, etc... you get the picture right!  I collect all kinds of junk umm great used things! Tee Hee  Well back to the magazine thing, I am an online subscriber to Cricut Magazine.  And finally this past week I decided to take a look at a years worth of magazines, which are awesome by the way.  With that being said, I found an adorable witch's hat that I wanted to try.  Here is how I made it..... 



I gathered some purple tulle and tied it with a piece of cord. 


My soccer ball was cut at 6 inches from the Life's A Party Cricut cartridge using shift. 


I attached the tulle to the black circle after I distressed the edges of the circle with my Tim Holtz paper distresser. 

 

I cut this ribbon in half down the center to make it slimmer.  


I added the ribbon to the hat that I cut using Life's A Party (monkey birthday hat) at 6 inches and Recollections adhesive tape.  My paper is from DCWV Ghosts & Goblins Stack from last year. 


Finally, I glued the hat to the base using my hot glue gun, made a bow using some more of that orange ribbon from Michael's, I made three flowers using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge cutting them at 3 inches and added some orange bling to the center.  Finally I added some Halloween pics I picked up at Michael's.  

Of course my hat doesn't look anything like the hat in the magazine but I gave it a shot and enjoyed making it.  If you don't already receive the Cricut Magazine you should take the time to take a look at them.  Now that I've actually looked through all the back issues I have, I realized they are full of great inspiration.  That goes for all my paper magazines I subscribe to.....it's amazing the amount of inspiration this collector has found just by using some of the things I have collected.  LOL 

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see my Theme Day Thursday post for My Cricut Craft Room!
