A 3D Challenge!

I do believe this is my first 3D item I have made. Unless a coaster counts, lol. But Pam and Carrie have opened a new blog called 3D Design Challenge. This is their first challenge to make this little box, the instructions and all the info is on their site. I had such fun making this!

I'm not for sure if I did it right, because there were these little notches to cut out and I dont know what those were for, lol. I didnt use them. But I still think my box turned out ok? I am going to put some incense in this and a little incense burner and give to a friend of mine. I decorated it with the stamp all the way around, in the same fashion, but on the 'front' one I put the little brads on the flip-flops. I took two photos, trying to show the scored lines on the bottom of the box and the how I distressed the edges, but still not showing too good. My 'handle' for the box...I made it like I was making those hemp bracelets, just knotted on both ends inside the box is all. I used to make lots of those when my daughter was younger, alll her friends just had to have them, and varity of colors! LOL! And actually now, I'm seeing them back in the stores.

The temperature when I got up this am was 68 degress! How nice is that?!! Although it looks like its going to rain, again! Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Box Details:
Stamps: You are my Sunshine by Gina K Designs
Papers: SU! cardstock and DP from M's
Accessories: scor-pal, wooden beads, hemp twine, hole punch, tissue paper, glue dots
