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)

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.
