I have used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the chipboard was also a gift from Neva. and the sentiment was from Stampin up.

Hat Box

Hi Everyone, welcome back to my blog, This is my new project for the Color it Create it Show it off blog. We are an anything goes challenge, sponsored by My Besties. We have some great images up for grabs. I have used image 957 for my project. There is a sale on right now in the store, so go check it out and use the code GREATSALE55 to get a great deal on all images, printables, and CD's which are awesome.

I have colored her with Copic Markers. and then fussy cut her out.

I have made a hat box, so a small gift box, which I thought was a unique Idea. I found it at http://3dsvg.com. I made the hat but had resized it in my Silhouette Studio as I thought it would have been too big. I like the size it is which is 8 inches instead of 12.

I have decorated the box, with the image and some flowers which I colored to match the image using ink sprays and leaves cut from silhouette.

Here is the end result.
