Witches Hat Giftbox Tutorial

As most of you know, I created a pretty cool witches hat giftbox for Echo park’s CHA summer 2011 booth! It got GREAT feedback and I figured that I would get this tutorial done for you all so you can try to make it yourselves!

It’s a lot of fun and not that much work! I made a video for the hat part since it’s easier to show in a in a video than to explain picture by picture. First, I will expalin everything else, and then add in the video for the hat at the end!



  • Hot glue
  • Glue
  • Vintage crinkle ribbon. Mine is from HERE I used ‘almost black’ and ‘steel’
  • Apothecary paper kit from Echo Park Paper Co.
  • Ultra fine glitter (black and a dark grey)
  • 20G Jewelry wire in black
  • Ink in dark grey and black.
  • Black eyelets
  • Paper mache’ cone/cardboard cone at 4″ diameter.

SVG Collections needed (you can always make this without SVG’s)

SCAL/MTC basic shapes

  • Circle cut at 9″
  • 3 rectangle shapes at 1.50″h and 10.00″w


  • Bats.. I found a FREE SVG file, however I can’t seem to find it again. Happy Hauntings cartridge has one as well!


1). Make the big boutique box. You will want to use the Square flat trio LARGEST one. Cut as sized in SCAL. (if you want to make your own box make it 11×11″ or larger.

2). The label was different on my original, but you can use the label from SVG Cuts Strawberry lane colelction. file is: label1_bottom.svg cut at 3.00w

3). 3D flower from SVG Cuts is in the ‘extras’ folder. File is: 28.svg sized in layers from 3.00w to 1.25w. Crickle and ink edges, etc.


Design Tips:

  • Add ink.. ALL OVER, lol. Inking add SO much!
  • Add the sticker from the collection kit to the hat!
  • Glitter the bats and web trims. I brushed on Mod Podge and then sprinkled away! The web was done in black and the bats were done in a dark grey. I used Recollections brand glitter which works GREAT!
  • Add eyelets and crinkle ribbon to the tag on the front. Add a name, etc. or stickers like I did!


Time for the videos! This will show you how to make the hat and assemble. Once the hat it done you just stick it onto the box!

I kept my face out of this video, so you get to stare at my sausage fingers! LOL! I’m not feeling very well, so I didn’t want to put on makeup or do my hair, lol. I had to break the video up into 3 parts, and they are each about 8mins long.

***Grrrr… for some reason the sound is ahead of the actual video. Sorry, not sure why it’s like that? I need to figure out this whole You Tube junk! or maybe it’s just me?.. It seems to lag about 15-20 seconds? ***

Video 1: You Tube link (may be better quality?) And yes, I totally give you all the finger, egh.. sorry, lol.. it was obviously an accident!


Video 2 – You Tube Link



Video 3 – You Tube Link 

OK, that’s it, enjoy!! Hopefully the lagging isn’t too bad?… Any questions, just ask in a comment and I will reply in the comments for you!


So, while I was busy making my design team project for Fantabulous Cricut I got sidetracked when I remembered a kit I saw LAST year. It was a kit with little cups and precut ears, nose, etc. to glue on and make a bunny container. I started to brainstorm and decided to whip one up real quick. This took me no time at all to put together once I cut my pieces. So fun and simple.. I can totally see making a pleathora of these just because I can whip them out so fast! You know the saying ‘Multiply like rabbits..” LOL!

Here is today’s paper cuteness!





Best of all.. I used Sure Cuts a Lot basic shapes.. that’s it!

Here’s how:


You will need Sure Cuts a Lot.. not sure if Make The Cut has a basic shapes library? If you use Cricut design studio, I am sure you can figure this out with some cartridge shaes! Heck, you could even cut shapes out by hand, folks! *high five* You will also need a container of some sort. I used a breadcrumb container so the cut sizes I give you are going by that.

First, cut your container down to about 3″ tall.


Hmm, I have a sudden craving for chicken parmesean!

Anyhow.. cut a piece of paper 3.5″ high and 11″ wide. Wrap it around the container gluing as you go. I used hot glue… and I burnt myself.. and my glue gun got stuck to my comfy velour pants. Yes, I am totally messy and spazzy (is that a word? LOL!) when I craft…

…… and yes, I wear velour pants. They’re comfy, Mmm-kay?!

Moving on…

Did you cut your paper yet?.. Get on it!


Ink up the edges if you want.. I think it really helps the project stand out a bit more. Plain ol’ white was a little boring.

Cut and assemble -


Ears: Oval shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size 2 ovals at 4.00h and 1.50w. The inside of the ears are 2.730h and 1.00w.

Nose: Rounded heart shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 1.715w and 1.097h.

Bow: Rounded square shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 4.00w and 1.50h. Kinda crinkle it in the middle a bit. Cut a piece of paper at half an inch wide and 1.5″ long. This will wrap around the crinkled part of the bow.

Eyes: Two ovals, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size one at .3355 and .500h. Size the other at .291w and .433h. I used my white ink pen to add a catchlight in the eye. Glossy accents over the eyes will look great!

For the whiskars I just cut thin strips with my scissors… crinkle them up and glue them on!

To create pink cheeks, use your ink pad or dab some ink on a Q-tip and rub it on. You can also use paper chalk.

I am thinking of having my girls make one for each of their teachers and I will fill them with some yummy cookies! It’s the perfect size to stack cookies in.

Annnnd.. I really need to do a post with some questions answered and other random things I’ve been meaning to post. Maybe today? I promise I’m not ignoring all your emails and comment questions.. OK.. maybe YOUR’S! lol j/k. I’m really not that mean… really. OK.. I have nothing to do tonight.. soooo.. I will be back with a long rambling post for you all that have been waiting to hear back from me.

And can I just whine a minute?.. Of course I can.. it’s my blog.. neener-neener!

It’s snowing.. again! I kid you not, we’ve gotten more snow since ‘spring’ started than we have all winter! Ok.. maybe not.. but it’s really close to it! I am beyond ready for warmer weather… only because I have some darling dresses and sandals I am dying to put on my girls! LOL! Go away snow!!
