Steam Punk Hat & Stand

I made the Steam Punk Hat a few weeks ago Designed by Kim Costello, taken from the Craft Stamper magazine, If you did`nt get this mag dont worry you can download the template from www.craftstamper.com ...... 
To display the hat I designed a hat stand, made from chip board painted it black and embellished with cogs and black and yellow paper roses found in my craft stash.

In the next few days I will post my design for the hat stand with all the dimensions and materials needed..... Happy Crafting

Well I think I can safely say that the blockage to crafting ideas has gone :o) due to the fact of visiting some great sites and other crafters blogs ... So when I get home from this jaunt down to the big smoke, I can start to put them into action instead of just going into my craft room and looking at all my stuff still in boxes NOT being used... well watch this space.
