I hope you are all having a great week. Mine is busy, but it is great to be back at school. Well, let me clarify that statement. I am glad to be back in a learning atmosphere, but could do with out my business calculus class. Have I ever told you guys how much I hate math? YUCK!
Today I have a pillow box tutorial that I made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. This was the first time that I had ever made a pillow box, so I had no idea what to expect. While I was making this project I was thinking about the difficulty level of making bunches of these for a wedding or some other larger function. This particular box would be ideal for such a event. I realize that my Halloween box does not make you think of wedding or a shower. However, I thought a Halloween pillow box would be great to put treats in for my son's friends.
|All products used to make this pillow box are from Close To My Heart except the adhesive.|
|I used the Mischief paper line.|
|I cut this at fit to page using my 12" x 12" mat. It made for quite a large pillow box!|
|I scored it using my Score Pal.|
|I used Terrifically Tacky Tape as my adhesive.|
|Then I cut this border at 1 3/4".|
|I added black grosgrain ribbon.|
|I then cut these shapes out at 2 1/4".|
|I then use SUNSET ink and the Stamp of the Month.|
|I felt it needed a bow, so I added one.|
|I felt the bow was not enough, so I added bling!|
