Enchanting Witch & Top Hat with Trinket Books

Tutorial by Gina Long


“There’s a little witch in all of us. “Practical Magic”

Making little witch hats for a special little Halloween gift for teachers, grandkids, family, and friends would be so cute.

Welcome to my project! I’m sharing some little witch-hat and top hat treats/trinket boxes today. They each have a different little trinket book hidden inside. 

The trinket books are made from plastic skulls, pumpkins, and a chipboard micro mini album. 

I used one of my favorite collections, Enchanted Forest.




To make the little witch hat, you will need 

from pattern paper Medieval Splendor cut a 6 ¼ ” circle 

and a 4 ⅜ ” circle (cut a 2 ⅜ ” circle from the center of the 4 ⅜ ‘ one)

Also, cut from pattern paper 1″ by 8″ strip, score on 1″ side at ¼ , and cut teeth into that ¼ ” section.

Cut a 6 ¼ ” circle template from scrap paper and cut a ¼ ” pizza slice out.

Cut one Chipboard Circle 4 ⅜ “

cut a 6 ¼ ” circle from black cardstock and a 5 ¾ ” circle from the center of the 6 ¼ ” one.

Follow the reel to put it together.
