I so love this new Steampunk Spells paper collection. Made a top hat from chipboard with a film strip inside for pictures. There is a tutorial bellow how to make the top hat and measurement for the film strip. Used the 12 x 12 - 8 x 8 and 6 x 6 paper pads.
Fussy cut out the hot ear balloon and used multi matte on to make it study. Then I added Score tape on the back and attached thick sewing thread. Backed it with black paper. Time flies is cut out from the papers and attach them to rolled wire. (rolled the wire around a thick needle to make the shape)
More fussy cutting and feathers.
Close up picture off the roller blade shoe and cat. Sew thread on the shoe binding , May Arts ribbon and Metal Brad staples for the roller blade. Also used Tim Holtz gears.
Close up picture wit a fussy cut bat.
Seen from the side.
Decorated the back side of the hot air balloon with some old clock parts. There are also some small clock parts on the back side of time flies. Fussy cut an owl and bird. Different chipboard gears and metal gears from Tim Holtz.
The idea for this top hat began with this beautiful steampunk lady. Cut out an extra hat, bird and necklace to make it more dimensional. Glued then some clock parts on the necklace and crackle accent on the handlebar. Black Quick cut spider behind.
Cut out a lot of flowers from the 12 x 12 papers and layered them. I have a video tutorial on how to make this 3D flowers and here is the link. The flower tutorial begins at the 15 minute mark.
Added gears and fussy cut leaves.
Front side has a working clock and I made wings and dry embossed them to make it a bit more steampunk. Used some old sun glasses I did not want anymore and decorated them with some gears,
chain, spider and bat on the wings.
The steampunk girl holds the film srip that can be pulled out from the side. Place for 6 x 4 photos here.
On the other side there is plase for small photos.
Here the film strip is rolled around the hat.
More place for small photos.
Seen from the top.
The crank on the top can twist around.
The hat can be displayed like this with photos.
So fun fussy cutting from this paper line!
Had so fun making this top hat with the fun and gorgeous papers. Hope it is a bit inspiring and that you got some ideas for your Halloween photos.
