Put Your Party Hats On!

When I saw Prima's (Donna Downey) canvas banners for this past CHA release, I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them. Make them into a banner right? Ummm, no. I don't "do" banners. (Just ask my friend, Alyssa, lol...) I don't know what it is, but I find it incredibly hard to use a banner as it is, even those adorable little stick on ones, or the teeny canvas ones. Honestly, they are cute - but inevitably, I change them into something else - they never appear as what they are. SOOO, in true Heidi form... as seen in the Prima CHA booth, here is what I made!

Yep, I stitched these babies together,  then gesso'd and painted on them, gluing flowers, and adding more paint, etc., etc.! Here are some close-ups of the "Cute Stuff" hat:

Charm Rose Doodle Deux #555795
Ruby Violet stamp set #940119

 But I couldn't stop with just one. The first one was so fun to make, that I went ahead and made a second...

What have you created lately? Anything unusual? Have you used materials in a way that they were not intended? I would love to see! Link up a picture here, and I will come take a peek!!
