After recently viewing the original, animated film of Alice in Wonderland, Jan created this Wonderland version using the Victorian Top Hat file. Roses, hearts, feathers, a pocket watch and more are featured in this Spring themed Wonderland hat design.
This project is easy to recreate.
Assemble the hat side, brim and top as shown in the assembly video using the link above.
A strip of white tulle is used in place of the hat bands. Feathers and hearts were tucked into the tulle and used as additional decoration. A few more hearts were sprinkled around the brim of the hat.
The rolled roses are from the hat file. Jan added some yellow stamens to the center of each rose with a drop of hot glue. The pocket watch is a resized version of the Round Candy Box. The watch measures about 1 ½ inches in diameter and is about ½ inch deep. Jan used hot glue to secure these elements to the hat. Add additional elements to complete the theme of a Wonderland themed hat.

Using shapes from the SCAL Library, select the rabbit ears and hearts.
Jan’s addition of the rosette is easy to replicate using a horizontal rectangle and vertical score lines at regular intervals across the rectangle.
Enjoy your make.
Spring is just around the corner. Create a new themed hat with one of these files.

March is just around the corner and there’s no time to waste if you’re planning on celebrating Mardi Gras this year with a FUN new piece! Why not create a fun adaptation of the gnome file and celebrate with a Mardi Gras Gnome!
The Gnome SVG file got a bit of a makeover, and our new Mardi Gras gnome is looking forward to grabbing a few extra strands of beads before the party ends.
If you don’t have double-sided patterned paper make your own by gluing two panels, back-to-back (you’ll need to cut 2 sets of panels). Lightly train the paper by curving the panels.
Next, join the tab for the brim.
Glue the panels to the inside of the rim of the hat with the pointed ends curling outward. Let dry. Add the decorative panel to the rim of the hat. If desired, add bells or another decorative element to the end of the panel at the point.
Place the hat on the gnome body. Adhere the nose and add any additional details you wish.
Fill the body of the gnome with a fun treat. Add a crumpled piece of tissue paper and let it puff up at the center of the hat area.
Of course, Mardi Gras isn’t the only holiday in March… St. Patrick’s day will follow in a couple of short weeks. Check out this cute St Patrick’s Day adaptation of the Gnome file!

The Explosion Box is a great way to make a gift for any occasion.
This Valentine’s Day explosion box was designed by Susan using the Explosion Box with 2 Boxes SVG file. She added Valentine’s Day paper and a few additional Valentine’s embellishments. The two inside boxes are filled with conversation hearts and wrapped Valentine’s candy.
Isn’t this just gorgeous! It is a simple and easy Valentine’s gift. If you are unsure, watch how easy this is to put together in this assembly video.
Check out this adaptation of the Love Truck Box Card. From box card to a layered version, the truck is perfect for your Valentine tiered tray decor.
Changing it up is easy and the sizing is perfect for the larger trays. Using a smaller tray? Just resize the file to an A2 size card before making any additional changes.
Remove the side tabs on the file pieces that have them, use foam tape for layers and the dimension will be similar to that of the box card. All edges have been inked and some dimensional glaze was used on the side mirrors and taillights. Don’t forget that the cutting file offers a blank banner that you can personalize using a sentiment of your choosing. Jan used the Foil Quill (standard tip) and black foil to draw the lettering. (TIP: Do not remove the mat from the cutting machine after foiling. Remove the foil and then proceed to your cutting machine’s settings for cutting.)
Add some Wink of Stella and some Dimensional Glaze for a little extra pizzazz. This one’s a keeper!
