Bewitching Hat Challenge

Hello blog friends!  I am back with this week's Bitten By The Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. This week the challenge cut was my choice and with Halloween just around the corner, I chose a Cricut Cut Witch Hat.  I confess that I had an idea of what I wanted to do when I selected this week's challenge.  I used two Cricut Cartridges to create my fun centerpiece Witch Hat decor:  Artiste and Art Philosophy.  

The witch hat was cut using the both the Artiste and Art Philosophy Cartridges.  The hat cone shape is one of the 3-D elements available on Artiste. I made the cone by using the star cutout cone shape.  I used edit cut and removed the star cut outs.  

The awesome spiderweb trim was also cut using Artiste.  The trim was made using the Halloween cupcake wrapper in two sizes.  

The hat brim, the flowers, and the leaves were created using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I used two colors of card stock for the flowers and double sided card stock to cut the leaves.  

The double layer tag was cut using Artiste and stamped with the Close To My Heart Magic Potions stamp set.

I hope that you choose to get out your Cricut (and Creative Spell Book) and join us in this week's Bitten By The Bug 2 Cricut Cut Witch's Hat challenge.  Use any of the many Cricut Cartridges that contain witch hat cuts and cast a spell of fun!  Just be sure to tell us which cartridge you used and check the other challenge rules on the side bar at BBTB2.
