This tutorial is for assembly of the 3D pilgrim hat box die cut that can be found on the Silhouette Online Store.
|These are the shapes that you will have in your file. I cut the lid, base and brim out of black cardstock. The belt around the lower part of the hat, I cut from a dark gray cardstock and the buckle was cut from goldenrod yellow.|
|First, all fold lines fold in toward the wrong side of the paper. Above is about what your lid will look like when all folds fold in. I prefer to crease all folds before I start assembling.|
|I then applied a liquid adhesive to all the tabs.|
|And then careful worked my way around the hexagon attaching the sides of the lid.|
|When finished, your lid should look like this.|
|Next, attach the tab on the base to the other end to form a hexagon as shown. All tabs should be bent inward.|
|I place the base inside the lid to help it keep it's form as I attach it to the brim.|
|Next, apply your adhesive to the tabs.|
|And carefully, center it on the brim.|
|Press down gently on the top to be sure that the base is sticking.|
|Reach your fingers in and press on the tabs to be sure they are secure to the brim.|
|Create another hexagon shape with the belt by glueing end to end.|
|Apply buckle to belt with a little adhesive.|
|Slip the belt over the lid and your finished! |
Now fill with goodies and you have the perfect Thanksgiving party favor!
