If you're anything like me, you have a few empty Stampin' Up! brad/button containers laying around. Today's project puts them to good use with this Everyday Enchantment Recycled Container Hat Box.
Don't worry - if you don't have any, you can purchase Stamp & Store Containers, package of 6 for only $3.95.
This was one of my Leadership Sale-a-Bration Presentation Projects. Definitely one of my favorites. One of my hostesses favorites too, as they each received one as a gift from me for having an in-home workshop during Sale-a-Bration - only THREE more days!
Here are some of the details:
A. The Hat Box itself is very easy and pretty quick to make.
B. The Faux Suede Flower - though not hard, does take some time to make
C. The Hat Pin bow uses an easy Multi-Loop Fork Bow Technique
Don't worry...I've got four separate videos to take you through the various steps. For some of you - you may already know some of these papercrafting techniques. If that's the case, you can go directly to the fourth video on how to make the hat box itself.
