What Does an Elf Wear on His Head?

What Does an Elf Wear on His Head?  A hat---really you didn't know that??? LOL, OK if you didn't know that I bet you've not seen one either so here's what one looks like: Elf Hat

And, it opens from the top (yes, the top) to hold chocolate! I just thought this was really cool so I decided to share it with you!

Here we go:

1. Cut Wild Wasabi cardstock 4 1/4 X 11 (you'll get 2 hats per sheet of cardstock); score the long side at 5 1/2. Mark both short sides at 2 1/8" from the edge of the long side. Score from the 2 1/8" mark to the edge of the 5 1/2 mid-score line. Do this on all 4 sidesScoring

2. Fold on all score lines Folded on score lines

3. Apply Tear and Tape to the inside edge of 2 flaps; remove the tape covering and close these flaps over the other 2 flaps while bending at the mid-score line. Tape


4. Cut Wild Wasabi 1 X 5 1/2; apply 3 dimensionals to the back of this hat brim and adhere to the bottom of the hat base; using Paper Snips cut an angle from about 1/4" to the top edge of the brim.

6. Cut 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 red glimmer paper; using the 7/8" square framelit (Layering Square framelits) cut out the center of the square. This is the hat buckle--adhere this to the hat using dimensionals
