Patriotic Top Hat

Hello, I am back with another design team project for SVG Attic!  For this project I decided to go with a vintage Americana feel and made a patriotic top hat.  For the hat I used the mad hatter hat from the Mad Tea Party SVG kit.  Isn't it so fun?
To embellish the side, I made the star rosette from the Vintage Patriotic Cupcake Wrapper SVG collection and added some crinkled ribbon, burlap, a button and a couple sprays of decorative stars.
I used white and red crinkled ribbon to twist all around the base of the top hat to finish it off.
To give you an idea of the size of this hat cut out at the original file size, and to kick the cuteness up even more, here is a picture of my three year old playing with it :)  All of the papers I used for this hat are from the Vintage Nation stack by the Paper Studio.
This hat matches the current free gift at SVG Attic!  It is called Vintage Nation and is PERFECT for patriotic decorations.  To get this set free, add $9.98 to your cart, then add this set.  Use coupon code FREE at checkout and it will deduct the price of this set from your total!
BUT WAIT!  It gets even better!  This week SVG Attic is having a 35% off sale.  Every single SVG set has a reduced price plus you can get the free gift.  Pretty hard to resist, isn't it?  LOL!  If you make some crafty goodies with the SVG files you purchase, I would love to see them!
