When I saw this adorable pillowbox in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog I just knew I had to make it! It’s on page 23 if you want to look 🙂 So, of course I had to order the Wishes All Aglow stamp set for the cute ho-ho-ho lights, and the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies that make the pillowbox.
The pretty olive and black paper is the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. Love Love Love!! The lights are so darling, they just make me smile! I stamped them in Versamark ink and then embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder. Behind the lights are Vellum snowflakes cut out using the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies.
The pillowbox is surprisingly made using these multipurpose thinlits dies. They create a cute stocking that has a pillowbox backing so you can tuck a gift card right in the stocking! Or, you can just make the pillowbox by itself, as I’ve done today.
Here’s a picture from page 15 of the Holiday Catalog, showing what the stocking looks like next to the pillowbox. And there are so many other cute dies in the set!
Come back tomorrow because I’m going to show you some non-holiday pillowboxes to show you the versatility of these dies!
What do think of these cute pillowboxes? I love your comments! Leave me a comment HERE!
Welcome to the Blog Hop for July 2017. This month our theme is “SPARKLE”. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Peggy Noe, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Peggy Noe.
Sparkle! Who doesn’t love sparkle? What a fabulous theme for our blog hop! A Gold Striped Treat Bag is the beginning of my “sparkle” project today. These bags are so much fun to embellish!
I used the pretty Berry Burst as an accent color and made a tag of Berry Burst card stock. The tag is adorned with a “lovely” heart cut from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Lovely Words thinlits dies. The gold really sparkles against the berry!
A strip of 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst runs along the lower white stripe. Sparkly rhinestones line the ribbon strip.
Pretty Pointer: Do something different with your supplies. Use an item in an unusual way, the way the ribbon above is used in a way you wouldn’t expect. It gives an element of surprise to your project!
These bags are so nice for treats and little gifts. You can put almost anything in them. What’s your suggestion? Obviously, a cookie, a few candies, a nice bar of soap, some tea bags… I’d love to hear more! Leave me a comment and tell me what you would use this bag for 🙂
