The Hat Box

Isn't this just the cutest little hat box?  I got the instructions and idea from one of my favorite sites, Laurie's Stampin' Spot.  Laurie Zoellmer comes up with the cutest ideas.  She used her empty embellishment containers as the base for the hat, what a great idea.  At Stampin' UP! you can even buy the empty containers Stampin' Up sells them, you get six for only $3.95 Stampin' Store Containers (103649).

I put the necklace I posted yesterday inside and used the hat box as my gift container for my Twin, Judy.  She loved it!  Thanks for sharing your idea and instructions Laurie. :o)

I used Melon Mambo ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and used some of the Cardboard packing from the bottom of DSP to give the brim some strength.  The flowers are punched from Black CS using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  I used Basic Rhinestones in the center of the flowers and a Rhinestone Brad colored with my Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker to color it to match the hat.  The ribbon is the 1-1/2" Basic Black striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  Check out Laurie's site, she has so many great ideas!
