At Sketch Support this week we are featuring a birthday hat add-on sketch with lots of possibilities. Birthday embellishments have always been one of my favorites to make. Hats, presents, cakes, balloons - there is so much you can do with simple shapes and basic supplies! Plus the beauty of making your own from time to time is you can custom fit them to your project.
My first use of the birthday hat sketch was for a "Happy Birthday" card.
The second use of it was for a birthday layout. This time I made a scaled down version of the birthday hat for an embellishment.
I posted about Mike's birthday party here on my blog and I'm so glad I did! That post ended up being the journaling for my layout. All I had to do was copy, paste, and print. Can't beat the ease of that!
I have one more project to share created from the birthday hat add-on sketch that isn't posting on Sketch Support...
made by my little scrapbooker in training, Drew.
The birthday hat sketch caught his eye and he asked if he could make one too. I cut the main triangle for the base and the strips and also pierced the holes for the brads and the stitching, he did everything else on his own. I'm going to let Drew tell you about his hat in his own words.
Me: Drew, what would you like to tell everyone about your birthday hat?
Drew: I put ribbon on it. I put a flower on the top. I threaded (stitched) it. And I had fun doing it.
Me: Do you want to tell everyone anything else about your hat?
Drew: No, not really. Oh wait! Do you like my flower on top of my hat? Do you like what I used? Do you like everything that I made? I do too. The end.
