"Treat" by Suzanna Lee
Supplies - Cardstock: Coredinations; Patterned Paper: SEI, October Afternoon, Basic Grey; Stickers: SEI; Bling: Imaginesce; Punches: EK Success; Letter Stickers: American Crafts; Pen: Marvy, Sakura; Misc: Stickles; layout sketch: Valerie Salmon;

The biggest variation here is that I folded the cone edges in behind the cone to give it some dimension. I still used the stripes as per the sketch and the triangular base. But, as per the suggested variations, I flipped it and made it into an ice cream cone. You could hand stitch the criss cross patterns of the ice cream cone.

"I Love You" by Amy Roller
Supplies - Patterned paper/Cardstock: unknown, Stampin Up!, Lasting Impressions, Bazzill Shimmer;
Stamps/Dies: Papertrey Ink; Ink: Stampin Up!; Flower: Prima; Border strips: K&Company, Close To My Heart; Felt: Papertrey Ink; Pearl: Close To My Heart; Other: Thread, Rhinestones

I decided to flip the sketch and use it as a bouquet of flowers. I kept the scallop from the bottom and added it to the top border of the bouquet.

I stuck with the shape and made it sort of a pocket for the flowers. The flowers are my version of the "poof" that sits on top of the hat. It's all there just a little rearranged!

To start, I hand cut the triangle shape and made it into a 3-D pocket with the border trim attached. I then cut a pattern and solid strip to add across the front of the project. I put the pocket down on top of this and used a die to cut the "you" out and adhered it down as well. Next, I stamped the "I love" above it.

For the flowers I used border strips that I rolled up and held with adhesive. I then "folded" the edges of the strips down to make flowers. I then added a pearl and rhinestone to the handmade flowers. For the last and middle flower, I used a Prima flower with more pieces of the green border strip to make leaves behind the flowers. The two handmade flowers also have a die cut felt flower base.

Last I stitched a border around the base of the whole piece.

I will be putting this in a shadow box frame in my home.

"Fan" by Suzanna Lee
Supplies - Cardstock: Coredinations; Patterned Paper: Scenic Route, My Mind's Eye, Jenni Bowlin, Creative Imaginations; Dimensional Stickers: Jolee's, K&Company; Buttons: Blumenthal, Favorite Findings; Letter Stickers: Heidi Grace; Stickers: My Mind's Eye, Scenic Route, Jenni Bowlin; Twine: The Twinery; Ticket: My Mind's Eye

It's not a hat, it's not an ice cream cone, but a banner. I used the basic triangle shape and flipped it. I kept the decorations at the top and the bottom.

I even kept the stripes; they run horizontal instead. And, rather than creating them all, I just used a stripey paper. The Cubs logo was an addition to complete the banner. Go Cubbies!
