Altered Dies #5

Welcome back to another altered die project. Easter will soon be here and it is time to think about those Easter bonnets! When I was growing up my mother, her friends and I wore Easter hats to church on Easter Sunday. Do you remember those days? I am showing my age. LOL! Here is my altered die card with an Easter bonnet.

I started with the Rose Basket Marianne Die.

To make the basket look more like a bonnet, I added back in the little pieces that were cut out! Boy THAT was fun! LOL! I then taped the back so that they would stay in. Then I cut off the handle and decorated it with little die cut flowers and a bow!

The second die I used was the Memory Box Small Alder Tree. 

I snipped off a few pieces here and there to make it look more like a branch for my bird.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Those hat days were so special, weren't they, April? I think if they did not block the people's view behind us, many of us would still wear them LOL Let's face it, hats are fun! Your little peeper is adorable in her Easter hat! Love how you made the hat! LOL Thanks for sharing with us at the {Scrapy Land Challenge}! Hope to see your pretty projects again soon!
