3D Mourners Hat and Guest Diva

Good Morning Crafty Friends, I am so happy to have been asked to be a
Die Cuttin' Divas "Special Guest Diva"
Woot Woot... I feel so Honored and so excited!
So I wanted to create something really cool and had put this off since last year and decided it would be perfect for this fun 3D Challenge!!!
The svg cutting file is from SVG Attic and can be found here - JGW Raven Quest
There are a few other cool patterns in this file set that accompany the hat file.

I cut the Hat Pieces out of a thin chipboard with my deep cut blade on my Cricut.  I used this tutorial to assemble - and found that it went together very easily. 

I then painted my hat Black with just plain Black Americana Acrylic paint.  after I let it dry I took a light green ink pad and smudged smears all over the hat to age and distress it.  I added two buttons to the fancy piece instead of using the circle cut pieces from the file.  I didn't have the color of buttons I wanted to use so I just took 2 white ones and used my purple sharpie marker to color them and get the color I wanted :)  I then added them to fancy piece on hat with foam tape.

I then took some black wire edged ribbon I bought at Costco several years ago and folded it in half and wrapped around the hat. then attached with hot glue for the hat band.  I also created a bow tie looking bow out of same ribbon and attached to hat band.  I die cut some swirls out of purple cardstock and glued those to the hat and added several pretty light purple sequins to those.  I added to real feather's that matched the purple buttons.  I then cut the rolled flower (included in this kit) out of a slightly lighter purple cardstock.  after rolling for assembly, I curved and tattered the petals and added a pretty white glittery dome shape to the center of the flower.  I then cut the skull head once out of the thin chipboard and once out of glow in the dark white vinyl.  I had some scraps leftover from a previous project I worked on recently... I love the added touch it gave!  I hot glued the skull head to the rolled flower and voila... all done.
I am very happy how well this project turned out and have to say I was a bit intimidated by it and now realize it was a piece of cake.  Great file... Thanks SVG Attic.
I will be entering this project in these fun Challenges:
