Vintage Hat Box

Good friday morning all!  Here is the hat I promised you yesterday.  I did a vintage take on mine just cause you all know how much I love vintage! The picture below is a shot from the back so you can see the lace ribbon and how I just tied a knot.  Scroll down fuller to see the instructions.

So you are going to start by taking out your Scallop Circle #2 Big Shot die, using Pool party cardstock cut out the scallop.
Next get a 2 1/2' circle punch and punch out a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  Set both aside.
Take out your Finial Press Embossing Folder ( you can use which ever one you want of course!) now run both the scallop and circle through the folder.
Take your Tombow adhesive and glue the circle to the top of the container and the scallop to the bottom.
I then added the pearl on top just like Jennifer's and tied the Victoira 5/8' ribbon around the brim and added the Vintage Trinkets safety pin through the knot.  To make the flower I punch from the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Punch the third flower.  I punched four of them and added a brad to hold them together.  To scrunch the flower up you spritz the flower with water, let sit for 30 seconds then scrunch with your fingers.  Add  the leaves by punching out leaves from the Bird builder punch in Certainly Celery, add to the brim of the hat first then the flower then a few small pearls.  Wah la!  Next time I will do a video!  Hope you have as much fun making these as I did!  And thank you Jennifer Murai for sharing them!
