Hello! Welcome to the 3rd Pootler’s Team Blog Hop! I am so pleased you could join us! Everyone has worked so hard to create wonderful projects for you, please follow the hop around and leave comments on the fabulous blogs to come to.
I have to admit that although I have been organising this hop for a couple of months, I only managed to actually create my project on Monday! but, never mind, I’m here now
If you are one of my regular readers you will know that my box of pre-order goodies sat lonely in my office for 3 weeks while I went off and got married. Coming back from honeymoon and getting back into crafting has taken a few weeks, and several days of playing with the new products, but this pillow box was one of the first things I made. I love cute packaging, but making my own boxes isn’t something that comes naturally to me, so this pillow box die is awesome! Anyway, when it came time to make my Blog Hop project (a littler later than planned) I looked around my craft room for inspiration and came across this little box, and I fell in love all over again!
I made a second pillow box from Cherry Cobbler card stock this time, using the Seasons of Cheer Designer Series Paper as an accent. I will admit that the trees were a bit of an after thought, but they tie the pillow box favour into the rest of the project
If I ever get a Christmas day at home, this is totally what my table is going to look like!
The pillow box die is really versatile. Here I cut the tabs off one end, to create a cutlery holder. I adore this Designer Series Paper, I believe it was hand painted by one of the fabulously talented ladies at the Stampin’ Up! Home Office in Utah, and it is stunning! This tree paper has some wonderful Poinsettias on the reverse that are going to have to find their way onto the centre stage of a project or two! This pillow box is finished with a belly band of Vellum and Silver Glimmer Paper, with a tag and three vellum flowers punched from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack
Christmas just wouldn’t be with a tag. Last year I created 12 Tag of Christmas, and I have been thinking about doing something similar again this year, but I’m not sure yet. (Whatever I do will have to start soon though!). This tag features the same Designer Series Paper, Vellum and Glimmer paper combination, with those cute Itty Bitty flowers and the Love Peace Joy Stamp from A Little Something (the stamp set that comes bundled with the pillow box die).
Actually I can’t believe I have got to the end of my blog post without mentioning the Stamps! Shocking!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop, hop forward and check out what the wonderful Caroline has created this time.
See you again soon!
