Pillow Box

I have been playing with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine this week and experimenting a little with what can be done. Isn't this the cutest little pillow box? And it was so quick and easy to create — you could easily do a lot of these for a special occasion.
I used the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder with the Big Shot to emboss that beautiful flower image. Then I took that same piece of card and ran it through the Big Shot again with the Pillow Box Die — it cuts and scores so it is ready to form into the box. I crushed a strip of Riding Hood Red card stock, wrapped it around the box and tied some white taffeta ribbon around that. To complete, I attached some Old Olive leaves which were cut using the Little Leaves Die. I looooove those little leaves!!

It is cold and wet here in Canberra, so it is a good day for indoor activities!! Stamping perhaps :) Actually I have household duties to do, and some blog stuff, so I will not be stamping today. Hope you are having a good weekend!


  1. Love the crushed strip of RHR cardstock. It really sets if off. Cute little pillow box.

  2. What a fantastic wedding favour that would make. Gorgeous.

  3. I love it! I cant wait for August when we can get together & craft!!!

  4. Shell I wish you hadn't shown me how gorgeous these are - now I have to make about 70 for my daughters wedding. She loved them too! Thanks for sharing your talents.
