For my project I used some fun extras that I purchased from the Recollections department at Michael's. The elegant ribbon around the trim of his hat as well as around his shoulders is just the perfect gold accent. I ended up using the same cut for the inside of his crown to add some accents to his shoes. I thought it would be cute to make it look like his boots had stitching on them. It worked out perfect to shrink the gold accents on his chest to make them small enough to fit and look like laces on his boots. :0) I used fancy gold and black paper as well as rhinestones with red accents that I found in at Michael's.
