3D Leprechaun Hat Tutorial

Hi there friends! Today I am sharing an assembly tutorial for the 3D Leprechaun Hat (SVG, Silhouette). As soon as this paper collection came out, I knew I wanted to craft with it. It is the Happy St. Patrick's Day collection by Echo Park Paper Co. Thie little hat is the perfect size for a tiered tray or to hold a little treat for someone special. 

This cut file has five circles, two long stripes with tabs, and two buckle pieces. The tabs are all mountain folds. 

I started with the narrow strip first. This will be the hats brim. I added glue to the end tab and attached to the other end creating a circle. I then folded over all the tabs and added glue to each tab on the inside of the cup. Then I put one of the same-colored circles inside the cup and pressed down on each tab against my work surface making sure to shape and secure each one. I flipped the cup over and glued the second same colored circle on the top covering the tabs. With the wide strip and the two smaller remaining circles I repeated the steps making a taller cup. 

To help give a little dimension and to hide the white core paper I inked all of the remaining pieces and the two cups. 
I glued the two buckle pieces together. Then glued the shorter cup to the center of the largest circle. The taller cup is turned over and fits inside the smaller cup creating the hat. I glued the buckle into place only adding glue to the bottom half of the back of the buckle so that the hat can still open. 

I added a few stickers from the collection to glam my hat up a little as well as a jewel brad from my stash. 

I really like how it turned out and will be adding it to my tiered tray decor next month. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi friends! We have a short hop this month. The order is Lori, Traci, Brandie, and Ashley. I made a few of the 2 on 12x12 Heart Favor Box (SVG, Silhouette). These little treat boxes are perfect for giving a little Valentine treat to your galantines, teachers, coworkers, or anyone else that you want to make feel special.
