Happy Easter/Resurrection Sunday (eve) Krafters!
After you read this, you may think of me differently. Perhaps some of you can relate. Growing up, on Easter Sunday my mom would make me dress in a frilly dress, gloves, patent leather shoes, and a hat. Ugh, I strongly, on the verge of hated when Easter came around. I mean, it was bad enough going to an overcrowded church but to be uncomfortable too...that was too much! Then to add insult to injury after sweating out my freshly pressed hair, I had hat hair when I was able to FINALLY take off that hat! I think out of everything, the hat was the thing I could not tolerate. I did however like to have my hair down :)
As I was looking through the Silhouette Store, I saw the Easter Hat Box. I actually cringed. Then I had a thought, I could make it and give it to my mom as a "prank" because she knows how I feel about hats. I purchased it and this is what I came up with.
I used plain card stock for the base of the hat. I inked the edged of the scalloped edge. The hat assembled a little wonky, so to hide that, I used tulle and added pearls to the base and top of the hat. To embellish, I kept it simple. I added a piece of pink frayed rosette. I also add two yellow roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. To finish it off, I added a feather. What do you think?
The paper hat is not so bad. Perhaps I am being healed in the area of hat hating? I can tell you one thing, on Easter Sunday, I stick to the meaning of the day and fellowship with my family afterwards (that is what I LOVE about Easter aside for the true meaning behind it). Although mom is trying her hardest to get my girls into those dresses LOL...but no hats!!! What is your favorite or least favorite Easter memory?
I hope you enjoyed today's Project! Have a great weekend everyone...until next time, Krafthead~
