"BELLA ROSE" BOX

If you haven't already fallen in love with the "Bella Rose" designer paper, this should do it for you! This paper ranks right up there with "Ginger Blossom" for me, and I cannot wait to see what other goodies Stampin' Up! has in the new catalog! Even though the Bella Rose papers coordinate with the brand new Riding Hood Red color, I wanted to use Bravo Burgundy for the box base. I have always loved pink and burgundy together, and it worked well for this project (I think). The box was a bit tricky, so I need to make another one to prove to myself that I can. In case you're wondering how it opens, the polka dot flap slips up and out from behind the floral triangle. The lower half of the triangle layer is all that's adhered to the box front. Is this a cool box or what????? BTW, the button in the center of the flower is a brand new one. I can't remember the name of the button assortment, but I think it's called "Button Bouquet." I cut a sliver of Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon to thread through the holes in the button and tied the fraying ribbon in a knot. I like the shabby look of it! And, of course, I used the brand new Scallop Edge punch on this project, too.
