Crafty Halloween Blog Hop!!!!!

Welcome to the Craft Junkie too Halloween Blog Hop!!!!! Thank you for hopping on by to see our terrific crafty Halloween, don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win blog candy along the way.

We are a short hop, only nine crafters long... so it won't take long... and you won't want to miss the fun! :)  The links to the rest of the blogs are below my project!

I made this little witches hat as a decoration for my office.  It needed a little something to brighten it up!!  I absolutely love the Frightful Halloween Paper Pack by Creative Memories!  It has the most beautiful Shimmery Purple cardstock!!!  I just had to use it for the base of my witches hat!!!

To make the base of the witches hat I used the Jumbo Circle from the Creative Memories Custom Cutting System and cut two large circles.  One I cut a pie shaped wedge out of so that I could roll it together to make the cone shaped top. 

I put a little wired ribbon around the circle.

I then used the Creative Memories Scalloped Circle Maker and punched out 20 circles.  I cut a slit towards the center after every other scallop to make a flower.  Each petal was then curled by rubbing the petal gently on a foam pad using my paper scorer.  Attached a little bling in the center and adhered it to the witches hat

To make the small flowers I used my E2 and cut 30 small flowers from the American Alphabet cartridge that was built into the E2.  I absolutely love how the E2 cuts the designer papers from Creative Memories.  All papers in this project were from the Frightful Halloween Paper Pack by Creative Memories.
