Beautiful Easel 'Hat' Style card With Matching Gift Box


Hat easel card tutorial


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by. You may of noticed that i have not been around for the last few weeks. I took a break from Youtube & my Blog as i have not been to well again & i just really needed a rest from it all. Anyway, i am back now & i have some fantastic projects lined up for you. I really hope you enjoy them & please feel free to share my posts/videos etc.

So to kick it off i have this beautiful Easel style hat card that also has a matching presentation box. Firstly i want to say that this project popped up on my pinterest feed. There was no tutorial however, just a couple of pictures. As soon as i saw it i new i had to try and make it. The easel card is very similar to the one i found of Pinterest but the presentation box i made was very different from the original. So in principal this project is not my idea but i made up my own tutorial. I shall put the link at the end of this post for the original creator. Credit where credit is due!!

This really is a very simple project to make and definitely  a 'keepsake' card. I also had the idea of making the presentation box a larger 'Hat' box but to be honest i hate making circular boxes! I just find them a pain & can be very difficult to put together. So with that being said i just opted for a square gift box.

I will list the sizes of the circles i used and also the measurements for the gift box. Just bare in mind that if you use different size circles to me, your box may not fit your card.

I hope you have enjoyed my Project today and maybe you will try one for yourself. It really is so beautiful and quite unique.

  4. Beautiful set here Ann. Love it. It'll take some getting use to the voice over though. I'm finding it a little hard as I'm one that needs to have the visual and have time to stop and rewind videos to write down the instructions. Then if I need to just go back and watch it again. But it's good. I'm still a faithful follower for sure. Love all your projects. Hope you are feeling better. We all need to rest for a bit once in a while. Take card my dear. Hugs

  7. Loved this Ann. Would be interested to know what the black paper was that you used. It looks so pliable but also as if it is wholly black if you know what I mean. Sometimes a sheet of black when you cut it seems to be white in the middle. I haven't seen your videos before but I'll certainly back to see more.

  8. I'd really like to make this card, but the beginning of the video was missing therefore I did not know what circle dies you used to create the layers. Also, the end of the video was cut off before you were finished. Is there a slower version of this? It's a fabulous card and would be perfect for me to give to my friend who is hosting an afternoon tea party.
