Happy, Happy Happy!!!

Here is a little box that we made at convention. Chipboard is really "hot" right now so Stampin' Up! is really keeping up with the trends by offering quite a variety of chipboard embellishments to use for just about anything! My poor little box got a little mangled on the trip. I tried to make it presentable but I am afraid that it still has some "issues". What I really love about this little box is that the flower and the flower center are really three dimensional! I will try to explain as it might be hard to tell from the photo. We punched a hole in the box itself. Then we took a piece of cardstock with dimensionals and put it behind the hole. Then we stamped and punched out the flower center and stuck that directly to the piece of cardstock behind the hole so it looks like it is "set in". Then we took the chipboard flower and put dimensionals on it to pop it up! There is also a tiny rhinestone brad in the center. The chipboard flower does not have any paper or ink on it. It is what some might call, "raw". But it still looks great! The layers at the bottom of the box use the new Happiness background stamp that is many stamps in one! I can't wait to play with it! Have a great day!
