A box by Kathrin

Hello Simply Sassy fans! It´s me, Kathrin, today and I am showing you my
very first Simply Sassy inspiration post so I am a bit nervous...

I thought I´d share my beloved chocolat mint candies with you today.
And since you can only watch them here (also because I ate them all LOL)
I made a box using the "Hippie Chick" cutie so you have at least something sweet to look at. I am sorry that the pics are so dark but there´s like no daylight with all those clouds out there...
Here´s a close up of this sweet image:

I thought I would let her sit in a flowery meadow with some big leaves behind her. So I cut around the image but left some paper under her that I can use to attach her to the box.
The leaves are stamped and cut out and then glued to her back with 3D tape.
I used the flowers not only as a decoration but also for keeping her sitting straight and not falling to the front or back.

This photo is giving you a look a bit more from the top:

And here you finally get a look at how the box opens up (and of what´s inside for you of course!):

I used Copics for coloring and just in case you are interested I am sharing a pic of the colors I used (the marker witout number is a "0 - Colorless Blender"):

I hope you like this project - let me know if so an I will share the instructions with you all. Wishing all of you a wonderful day!
