Mini Hat Boxes

I got this set of pretty papers from Wholeport this month:

Retro Scrapbook Paper
It clearly says in the product description that the paper is 21 X 21 cm, which is only about 8 X 8".  In my head though, for some reason, I was expecting something bigger.  And the whole time I was waiting for it to arrive I was envisioning it all done up using this Silhouette design:

When the paper arrived I immediately realized I had made a mistake in the size but I also noticed that it was the perfect weight for the design, and my heart was still set on making this box so I just shrunk it way down in Silhouette and made it...smaller.


I decided to skip the dividers.


These are the perfect size to give to someone filled with candy or a nice set of earrings or any other small trinkets.  They'd also make lovely storage containers on your dresser or night stand.  Because of the weight of the paper they're pretty sturdy.


They'll come in very handy for Mother's day too!

Wholeport now has all kinds of lovely papers, embellishments, and even stamping supplies.  Check it out in their new Scrapbooking and Stamping & Embossing sections.
