Dress Shop Vintage Victorian Hat Boxes And Fascinator Hat

Hi my crafty friends!
I've been having fun making these pretty hat boxes from Mary's kit " Dress Shop"
Click on the link to get the kit.

Mary used Graphic 45 papers and they are sooo pretty.

I just Love this kit!!!

This was one of the first hat boxes that I made and when I was in Michael's I found
the clock paper for my lid top and stripped for the inside and around the lid. I love clocks probably because 
of the musical chimes each one makes. 

Mary's flowers are so fun and easy to make.

You can make a tall or flat flower with the file. It just depends how much you glue the cut piece over.
 For the large flower I cupped it tighter.

I finished the Fascinator hat for my burgundy clock Hat box.
I really enjoyed creating these cute hats!

For this darling hat I resized the lid from the hat box. The flowers are made from Mary's  "Dress Shop kit.

Now I need to make a Fascinator hat for my daughter Hat box.
What style shall I choose???
If you have any suggestions, please email me and I will be happy to make your hat.
Soooo fun!

I wanted to make this hat box to match the Dress form that I made in my last post. Very dainty and
pretty in pinks and blacks.

I measured and cut by hand the pink and white stripped and also the black and white for the
outside panels. I glued black braid around the outside box. I also added tiny silk roses around the pink stripped paper.

I just happened to have the birds in my stash and they worked perfect on top.

I really like how the Hat box turned out and it goes quite nicely with the Dress form. 
Very delicate and pretty! I really enjoy making Mary's creations.

I simply had to add this exquisite Fascinator hat to this collection.
Elise Dony Tribke made a suggestion on Leo & Mary's Facebook site that we
 needed a Fascinator in the Hat box.

 I thought how cute it would be to make this Fascinator to match my Hat box and Dress form.
 Thanks Elise for the inspiration!

I used the top from Mary's " Honeybee Tea svg kit"

Yep, that's the Teapot lid made into a Fascinator hat. Who would have thought... LOL
I made it a little larger so that it would accommodate all the feathers, flowers and decorations.

I added black satin ribbon to tie around the neck.
A really fun project to make!
Hope you enjoyed my fancy hat.
I'm wondering if Princess Kate has one like this?/ :)

I made this Hat box with my daughter Jessica in mind. She has Burgundy, black and beige in
her office and a Very large standing dress form.
I thought a nice Hat box was in order :)

I used gold foil around the bottom box and added some tiny rose paper inside for the lining.

I gluedsome gems to give the flower a little shine.

For this flower I glued three petals from patterned paper and glued a small flower in burgundy to the center.
Fun flowers to make and very quick and easy. 
The Hat boxes are winners and will definitely be on display for everyone to enjoy.

I had to make this Fascinator hat to match the Hat box. They are so fun
to make. For the top of the hat I used the top of the apple box file in Miss Bakers Classroom kit. The
round rim is from the Hat box in the Dress Shop kit.
I used gold cord binding around the edge of the hat and a black ribbon for the tie.
I love how it turned out and can't wait for my daughter to see it.

The flower from the Dress Form in the Dress Shop kit. They are so quick and easy to assemble.
