Hi & Hello!
June is the month of graduations, weddings, bridal, and baby showers so I thought I would share a beautiful favor box that is easy on the budget and quick to make. The Pillow Box was created using Angels Landing Digital Stamps Pierced Flowers on the Pillow Box template you get free with the Pierced Backgrounds set.
The Pillow Box template comes in a PDF file you can re-size to suit your need. I didn't re-size it at all - just printed and voila! It is about 3.5x6 and has a slotted tab to open and close.
I wanted a fresh and clean look for my pillow box so I printed the template onto white cardstock, then added a removable slip cover of Papertrey Linen Vellum which reminds me of a cross stitch pattern (you can see the pattern a bit if you double click on the photo). It has a nice weight to it so it is more like cardstock and doesn't crack when you score it.
To size the slip cover I placed the vellum over the the template and scored the folding lines with my Scor-Pal, then trimmed the sides. The ends of the slip cover are covered with Stampin' Up! Satin Ribbon. This way you can slip off the decoration to open up the pillow box, and fill it with treats or a small gift.
For a pop of color I colored a few leaves and pierced flowers from the Pierced Flowers set with the Copics you see above. I cut each petal all the way up to the center of the flower to shape them, and added foam dimensional dots of various thicknesses so that the flowers and leaves rest at different heights. The center of the flowers have a bit of sparkle with Crystal Stickles Glitter Glue.
Finally, I added the special date of an event with white Rockabye Thickers by American Crafts (self-adhesive foam letters). I just picked a day at random - okay it is my birthday tee hee.
