3-D challenge

I made this little box for the challenge at 3-D Design Challenge Blog. A super simple template. I adjusted mine to a 3" instead of the 2 1/2 as the template is. I wanted it a little bit bigger to sit this candle in a little jar I have around here...somewhere, lmao! I swear, I put stuff up and then can never find it...one of these days I'm going to find a treasure trove of goodies! haha! Anyways, here is the box:



I used the stamp set of Mel's from Gina K Designs, the daisy in it. I was lazy and didnt color 4 daisies for all sides, so on three of the sides I just stamped with versmark and heat embossed those. I punched holes in the top edges with the little $1 punch from Michaels and then punched holes down the sides to lace the ribbon..tied a bow, added a little butterfly charm and all done! Oh, I did cover the colored flower in versamark and heat embossed it too. I like how it turned out and think it will add alot to the gift candle...when I find the candle...lol.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! It is soo beautiful here to day...little nippy, but still hard to stay in the house and stamp!!

I try to punch borders with those punches and always mess up somewhere. Do you mark the centers before you punch or are you just better than me :-)

Super cute!
