Happy 2014 Top Hats and Treat boxes

2014 - IT ARRIVED?  Had to hustle, yet again, to make these hats and treat boxes for the annual New Year luncheon.  This great cut file is from my favorite site: and their collection is called New Year's Eve SVG Kit found here. I didn't have to re-size this file at all - it was perfect to cut.
Here's a photo of the hats piled up. Made 14 of these.
A closer look at the hat: I love that eyelash yarn around the rim.........glad I found a use for that yarn besides having to use it for knitting or crocheting. The glitter paper stars are a punch from EK Success adhered with mini glue dots.  Adhesive black and silver rhinestones are randomly attached to the hat. As shown in the SVGcuts  instructional video, a elastic is attached to the hat to be comfortable worn.
Banner with "Happy New Year" was computer generated, then cut for the hat.
Glitter stars: paper from Recollections.
Here are the treats boxes in a pile - made 14 of those, too:
The treat boxes are so quick to make: only one piece of main paper (in Black) and the silver liner piece behind the windows which also is used for the moon. From my ribbon stash is a 1/2" wide silver ribbon and eyelash yarn on top (to co-ordinate with the hat). The "celebrate 2014" is computer generated, then punched out using the small Stampin-Up Oval Punch.

Here's a closer look at the ribbons:
Last but not least, adhesive rhinestones were randomly placed on the 'buildings".............this could be any skyline, eh?
Thank you for stopping by.............we had a great luncheon on New Year's Day.
