Treats "My Pretties"?

Seeing these on other blogs I just had to figure out how they did it and do my own. 
Halloween is one of my favorite Holiday's.

Looks hard to make?  Not at all!!

You are going to need a few supplies for making the Witches Hat.
  • Big Shot
  • Petal Cone Die (2 Pcs cut out)
  • Scallop Circle Die
  • 3 1/2" Circle Die
  • Window Framelits
  • Lacy Brocade Impressions Folder
After cutting out 2 Pcs of the Petal Cone Die cut down the flaps to approximately 1/2".  (Round Flaps) You will need this to attach the Scallop Circle to the bottom.  I would advise using Sticky Strip to adhere the hat together.

  How fun is this...Secret Trap Door!
Before adhering the Scallop Circle to the bottom of the Petal Cone, take the framelit from the Window set and center that in the middle of the Scallop Circle and cut out.  You will do the same thing with the 3 1/2" circle that you cut out.  Make sure when adhering the circle to the Scallop Circle that you only put adhesive on the outside of only 3 sides.  This is so you can put your trap door in and out.

SCARY Spider Web
The Spider Web is made for the Crochet Victoria Ribbon.  I cut off a piece of the ribbon, cut slits all the way around it.  Then I pulled it in all directions to give it the Spider Web effect.  I attached this with Mini Glue Dots.

Satin Ribbon Technique
This is a GREAT technique to use with any of the satin ribbon.  It gives any project a WOW factor.  For this you will need: 
  • 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon
  • 1 1/4" Circle punched out (Basic Black)
  • Sticky Circle (Cut to fit the 1 1/4" Circle)
  • Antique Brad
  • Heat Gun
  • Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP Scallop Circle
You will take your ribbon and cut slits in it, a inch apart.  I started with a 12" PC of ribbon.  You will then take your silted ribbon and start adhering to the sticky 1 1/4" circle starting from the outside going inward.  Once you have it adhered all the way into the middle take your Heat Gun and heat it up.  (If you have a little extra ribbon you can snip it off)  You will start to see the ends curl up.  You keep heating it until you get your desired look that you want.
For the banner I used the banner from the Petal Cone Die.  The stamp set that I used for the "Trick or Treat" is from the "Toxic Treat set".
If you have any questions please let me know.
I hope you will have fun creating your own!
