Red Hats

These little hat treats are cute...... and just a little time-consuming depending on how many you're making. They're very simple to make though. All you need is a 1 3/8" circle punch and a 3/4" circle punch. You punch 16 of the 3/4" circles and one of the larger one. Glue 5 of the smaller circles together and then use your crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the center of that stack. Glue that stack to the center of the larger circle. You then push a brad through the punched hole - that's what will attach the hat to the base paper (the white paper wrapped around the Hershey nugget). Then continue to glue/stack the rest of the 3/4" punches to complete the basic hat. You can decorate it as you like.

Note: Not an original idea of mine - I've saw it first on Wanda Pettijohn's blog. You should check out her blog - she's got some great ideas.

Another Note: If you have a Xyron sticker machine - use that instead of glue on all those little circles - goes much faster!!!!
