When I saw this idea I just had to try it. The entire hat is cut with spell binders scalloped dies. The trim is Websters and the flower is Prima.
To make the pins I used salt dough.
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
Mix with your hands a roll out. Then I used stamps and die ink to stamp directly onto the dough. I didn't have little tiny cookie cutters so I cut my dough bu hand.
Here is my messy counter while I was having fun.
I then baked them at 250 *F for an hour and a half, then turn the oven off and leave them in the oven until they cool. Once they are cool apply sever layers of spray modge podge. I sealed them each side 3 times, letting each coat of sealer dry 15 minutes. Then let them sit overnight as they will be sticky.
I'm thinking this is something you could get very creative with. If you give it arty I would love to see.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
