For my first project I decided to go for something 3D, my crafting has definitely taken a turn for that kind of thing recently, although scrapping will always be a big part of my crafting. Anyway, I didn't want to go for something really basic, I've had a CraftRobo for years and I'm pretty comfortable with the tech so I decided to go for something I really liked the look of, a 3d hat. I downloaded the cut file from the Silhouette Design Store for the HUGE sum of £1.31, most of the files are under £1....so I was really pushing the budget with that one!
Once I got my cut settings right for the Core-dinations cardstock, I set them up as a custom setting, a really handy feature as the chance of me remembering them were minimal. I resized the cut file and cut the hat pieces. Then it was just the simple matter of gluing them together and decorating the hat. I used the new Papermania geometric-mono paper line, a few gems and a medium heart punch, along with plastic scraps from packaging to decorate. I love how it turned out and can see me making more of these themed for the seasons or instead of a card for birthdays and the like.
Making this has also inspired me to have a go at making a smaller hat from scratch, but more of that later. In the meantime, I can't wait to try something more elaborate, I have my eye on a 3d house on Svgcuts along with most of their other designs. I'm also keen to try designing projects, so hopefully soon I'll be cutting my own designs.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting.
