Twine-tastic Party Hat

Hi Everybody!
Jenny from Crazy About Cricut here, and I'm excited to be sharing another design team project with you!  One of my favorite things to make are party favors.  So here are the details for my latest crafty creation!

*Elmo Party Cricut cartridge = hat and hat layer (blue)
*Jaded Blossom = Miscellaneous Fun set
*patterned paper from my stash
*Stickles in various colors
*white ink
*white gel pen for detailing

*I absolutely love that there are so many different colors of twine to choose from!  I was able to make this colorful pom pom for the top of my party hat really pop with all the different colors :O)

*To make the top pom pom, I took all five colors at once and made a bow with them using my Unity Bow maker.

*Then I just cut the ends of each side of the bow.

*I wanted it a little fuller, so I folded both ends of the bow together, and spread them out a little bit.

*For the pom pom that's in front, I again made a bow, and just cut the ends.

*I did use a little bit of hairspray for this "photo shoot" to keep all the ends where I wanted them :)


*To attach them to the party hat, I used a 3D pop dot (these are thicker and "beef-ier").

Isn't that such a cute sparkly hat?!  Other than the drying time for the Stickles, these don't take long to make at all.  I hope you enjoyed my project!  TFL, and have a twine-tastic day :O)
