Liberty Hat Party Favors - featuring Creative Cafe's Kit of the Month

Hey Everyone!  - Start preparing for this upcoming 4th of July festivities with these cute little Liberty Hat Favors - you can fill them with candy or a small styrofoam ball like I did allowing you to stick fun party elements or photos you create!

Here's a look at a couple of these together - the basis of these cute favors is toilet paper rolls!  Cutting them in half gives you two!

Combined with fun patterned prints from the Doodlebug pad- I prepared my toilet paper rolls by cutting them in half. 

I cut a width to match the heighth of my round cylinder, and added 1/2" scoring on the line as well.
Before adhering I cut slits up to the 1/2" slide.  Tucking in the ends with the scoreline you've now covered your rolls.  For the base or brim of my hat, I cut a circle about 1" wider than my hat and cut a smaller circle out in the centre of that.  Taking my scissers I cut slits around the inside so I can insert the brim.
To finish I created fun 'picks' using regular tooth pics and elements from the 6x6 pad, and flags that are included in the kit.

 Here's a couple closeups for the each -

Stamped phrases, and some hand-made pinwheels finish my project!  Red sparkly tulle add some filler in the bottom to help cover up my styrofoam balls inserted in each.
