UPDATE: I have had a lot of questions about the size of the circle. It is just under 3 1/2 inches.
Not in all cases but in this one they are both good. That is of course only true if you like Peanut Butter Cups. Ok I made these last year and so I am sure most of you have already seen them. But we didn't make them at a camp so I figured I would share how to make them this year. And what better time then now, 2 weeks from Halloween! Can you believe it? Only 13 days to Halloween, 40 days to Thanksgiving and gasp only 68 days until Christmas! Ok so on to the Samples and directions.....
As usual everything is from ' Up! unless other wise noted....
Things you will need to make a Witch hat: Coluzzle, Sticky Strip, Scalloped Circle punch (a regular circle can be used but not quite as cute) DSP or choice, coordinating Card Stock, Paper cutter or snips and CHILLED Mini Peanut Butter Cups. I have found that this works best with chilled PB cups or do it on a cold day. Other wise your PB cup will melt some making it harder to do.
To start you need to cut a Circle out of your designer Series paper. With my Coluzzle kit I use the 3rd circle in from the largest, it works perfect! UPDATE: The circle is just barley under 3 1/2 inches.
After you have cute your circle out using the coluzzle fold you circle in half and pinch at the edges if using a paper cutter or crease the full line if using paper snips.
Then on line up the 2 creased corners on your paper cutter and cut the circle in half. Or if you were using snips cut along the crease line so you have 2 equal semi-circles.
Now for the tricky part...lol. Ok maybe I should have said sticky. You are going to line sticky strip around the outer edge of the circle and half way up the straight edge (see image). Peal the red off the semi-circle side only. It will make it easier to use.
Holding your peanut butter cup larger side down, start at the straight edge without the sticky strip and circle the semi-circle side around the Chilled PB cup about a 1/4 of an inch up from the bottom.
Once you have made it almost all the way around you want to peal off the last bit of sticky strip from the straight edge. and then finish your way around. It will over lap a bit to hold it secure push the edges as firmly as you can with out misshaping the PB cup.
With your coordinating card stock you want to punch out a scallop circle for the brim of the hat.
Place 2 or 3 small strips of sticky strip right in the center of the circle (see image). Peal off and center PB cup hat top over it and apply pressure from the bottom of the scallop circle. TA DA your done!
I used the new Halloween DSP, Ghostly Greetings for my Hats (the one actually reminds me of a clown hat...lol).
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Stop by tomorrow because I will be posting 41 Christmas cards from a recent swap I hosted.
