“For my Mother” Vintage Hat Box Teresa Collins

 

Victorian Hat Box created with using Teresa Collins new cartridge Vintage Demask. I created this project for April’s Hello Thursday. I wanted to create a project to give to my mother for Mother’s day. This week is all about flowers and paper so this project is perfect for this week. I am hoping that you will find this project inspiring and I would love to see your creations.

Supplies used:

Provo Craft:

Teresa Collins Vintage Demask

Cricut Imagine

Demask II

Other Supplies:

Chipboard

Viva décor Inka Gold

Platinum

Viva décor Pearl pens

12×12 white cardstock

Ribbon in brown and pink

Paint the 10 inch hat box chocolate brown and let it dry. From the vintage damask cartridge print out the papers (brown damask pattern, pink damask pattern, and the pink stripe pattern) on white cardstock. Trace the lid onto the backside of the brown damask paper cut it out and glue to the lid. To make sure the edge is smooth sand the edges and then ink the edges in dark brown. Then cut out 2 of the decorative designs in chipboard paint the platinum paint on the chipboard. Then ink the edges glue one on the front of the box and one on the top. Cut out multiple scallop circles and cut the circles in the spiral pattern. Roll the spiral up into a circle, and create the circle flower with the scallop edge at top. Make 5 spiral flowers in different sizes and then create 2 paper twisted roses. Place the 2 on the outer edges of the damask chipboard pieces. Layer in the spiral flowers to create the pattern, and then cut out 2 scallop circles 3in and 2.5in glue the layers together and add a large spiral flower. This is the center piece on the lid. On the lid add the lace to the inside of the hat box, and then add the velvet ribbon to the top of lid lip. Finally add a pink sheer ribbon to the bottom edge of the box.
