Leprechaun Hat

I saw a picture of a Leprechaun Hat and thought all day, while I was at work, on how to make it.  Came home, played around with a few different die cuts I had and WHAAAA-LAAAA!
I haven't been this excited about something I made in...ahhhh.. NEVER
Only one thing that I think I need is to get a wider ribbon but I couldn't wait to show it off.


 Here is how I did it.

I used my Top Note die cut, put the fold below the cut.  Then cut the bottom off.  Flipped the bottom around and used that as the brim.  On each side used an oval punch and just barely punched a notch out on each side.  Hat buckle is just a square and then a small square punched out in the middle and glued a 1/4 inch strip in the back.  My shamrock is three small hearts with a little bling in the middle.  That's it.  Hope you all like it.
If you have any questions just as.  I'm probably didn't explain it very well.
