What a fun swap this was! Although, I must say, all the swaps at An Altered Place are fun!
We made hats in the shape of the Mad Hatter hat from Alice in Wonderland.
Here's the link to the hat template. http://lifeartcollide.blogspot.com/
They turned out so well. It's almost addicting! Most of the card stock is from stash I had. The stick pins I made using floral pins from Michael's and adding beads with super glue. The pins are white pearl, but are easily colored with any alcohol markers. I used Copics. I did give each of them a few coats of glossy sealer before decorating. It will help keep the bottom curve and give you a stronger hat.
