Witch Hat Clip

by Kelly Acheson

Make a cute clip to adorn a Halloween treat bag. Thanks to Janet Baker, who shared this project at Founder's Circle in St. George, Utah.


  • Cardstock (Stampin’ Up!® Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper used here)

  • Paper trimmer or scissors

  • Adhesive (Mini Glue Dots used here)

  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Stampin’ Up! supplies used here: Bow Builder Punch, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Mini Glue Dots, Mini Clothes Pins)


  1. Step 1

    Die cut a donut from cardstock using circle dies that are approximately 2 1/2" and 1".

  2. Discard the center circle – only the frame is needed.

  3. Step 2

    Cut two 1 7/8" x 1 1/2" rectangles from the same cardstock.

    Add a pencil mark to the center of the back of the rectangles on the 1 1/2" edge.

  4. Step 3

    Cut from each bottom corner to the center mark, making a triangle.

  5. Step 4

    Apply mini glue dots to both sides of the mini clothespin.

  6. Step 5

    Attach a paper triangle to the mini clothespin, positioning the binding end of the clothespin on the flat edge.

  7. Repeat with the other piece.

  8. Step 6

    Apply a mini glue dot to the bottom corner of each triangle.

  9. Step 7

    Add the paper donut shape by placing the pointy triangles through the center hole.

  10. Step 8

    Press the front and back of the donut shape down onto the mini glue dots located on the bottom of the triangles.

  11. Step 9

    Make a bow (Bow Builder Punch used here) and adhere it to the hat with mini glue dots.

  12. Step 10

    Complete the project.

  13. Use it to embellish a Halloween treat!
