Hats Fit for Tea!

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I spent it working on projects for my blog and helping my bestie work on several projects, for an event she has this week. 

A couple weeks ago Cloud9 released the funnest svg set called, Mad Tea Party. **This svg set is no longer sold** I found a similar one here.  I fell in love with it right away... I mean who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland and the mad hatter tea parties, or nay type of tea party for that matter?
 I knew right away I wanted to make the top hat!
I used papers from DCWV Blossom Collection for both hats. I love the bright colors and patterns in this collection!
 With this hat, I ruffled some plaid paper around the brim, added the boa, a few feathers, and made the rolled rose that I hot glued to the front.

Here are a few more views.
I just LOVE rolled roses. There so easy to make and are so pretty!

I loved the pink hat so much, I decided to make a blue one too!

  I added white 6" tulle around the brim and then tied a bow at the back.
This is my messy version of the posie flower. I also sprayed both hats with smooch spritz, they are super sparkly and glittery. Unfortunately, you can't really see the sparkle in the photos.

Here are the sizes that I used, for both hats:
Brim: 9.0405 Wide x 7.7820 High
Side 1: 8.0818 Wide x 5.1407 High
Side 2: 8.0284 Wide x5.4105 High
Top: 6.4467 Wide x 5.5546 High

I also need to announce the winner of the Envelope die from the My Creative Time New Release Blog Hop!
