I painted my paper mache pilgrim hat with black gesso. I then traced the rim onto a piece of patterened paper ~ Bountiful ~ from the Authentique Grateful Collection.
Make sure you are marking the backside of your desired patterned paper.
I cut out the traced image. I measured the brim of the hat, measured around cut~out approximately every .5" making a mark.
When cutting out brim, begin by cutting on drawn pencil line with exacto knife as you will need the inside piece!!!
I turned the hat upside down and traced around the top and cut out.
I Distrezzed the edges of the brim and the top of the hat.
Measure the side of the hat and cut your paper. I chose the Copious paper ~ Authentique. I then cut into the strip of paper to the right of each black line so I could manipulate the paper to fit.
I adhered the side papers with Ranger's Multi Medium.
I adhered Petaloo's Fancy Crocheted trim around the hat with Fabri~Tac, along with cording as I needed to hide where the cut paper did not fit exactly.
I finished off my "hat" with Petaloo's original Darjeeling Collection Flowers. What a BEAUTIFUL PAIRING!!
