Fabulous Felt

Don't you just love felt?  Soft, yet textural, easy to sew and colors...oh, my the colors.

Moxie Fab World is hosting a Fabulous Felt Challenge in the Moxie Fab World to use felt in an innovative way.  I really had to do some thinking on this one!  I decided to see if the Papertrey Box dies would cut felt...it took a few times through the Big Shot but guess what?



It worked!

My little box would stand on it's own but I wanted it to be a bit sturdier so I cut another box base from ivory cardstock and a liner from PTI designer paper.  I think I like it.  I like it even better filled with Hershey Kisses.  Roses, pearls, chocolate....and felt, oh yes! 

This also qualifies for the challenge at ICRC9 Celebrations + to have no stamping except for sentiments.  This is a new challenge to me.  Head over and check them out.

Supplies:
Cardstock & Designer Paper - Papertrey Ink
Felt - Papertrey Ink
Accessories-  MFT Die Namics Rose die;  Martha Stewart stick on pearls, leaf punch; string pearls; sewing machine; hot glue, strong double sided tape
