To celebrate the new catalogue, I wanted to share a 3D item I made for my display board at Onstage Sydney. Onstage is a demonstrator event where the new catalogue was launched to us and I was lucky enough to be chosen to make some samples using new products to be displayed at the event.
I started off by making this top hat using the In Colour 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Powder Pink from the 2017-2019 In Colours. I finished if off with the 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon in Powder Pink and the 2017-2019 In Colour Flower Buttons.
Once I had made the top hat, I then started thinking about how I could display it as our samples were being attached to a board and it wouldn’t look very good if I attached it by the base. So I decided to make a hat box to showcase it. I made an explosion box as the base and cut out a square at the front and put in some window sheet so you could see into the box.
I added strips of the Berry Burst paper from the same DSP to hold the corners together and raised the hat on a little platform. The “Happy Birthday” Sentiment comes from the Special Celebrations stamp set and cut out using the new Stitched Labels Framelits.
I finished the box off with the Berry Burst Mini Ruffled Ribbon and a bow made using the Envelope Punch Board.
I hope you enjoyed this project which was a bit outside the box (or inside the box on this occasion). Sorry, yes pun intended. I look forward to sharing more projects using some of the items from the new catalogue over the coming weeks.
Until next time, happy stamping
