I'm back with my second post of the Autumn/Winter Stampin' Up! 2017 catalogue launch. This post features a 3D project which is perfect for gift giving and so easy to make. First of all, let's look at the Tags and Trimmings stamp set and Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies I used to create the pillowbox. You can purchase the stamps and dies together and save 10%.
To create the pillowbox, I cut two of the pillowbox dies in Berry Burst cardstock, to make a front and back. I cut off the two top tabs and also the sides of one of the die cuts. Next I folded along all the score lines, being careful at the corners. I used Tear and Tape to adhere the front and back pieces together.
The decoration was created from a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Berry Burst (2nd generation) with the snowflake image from the Tags and Trimmings stamp set. I added a piece of silver 1/8" ribbon and wrapped this around the pillowbox. The tag is also created from the same die set and I attached the bow using a Glue Dot. The finished pillowbox measures 3.5" by 2.5".
These pillowboxes are super easy to make and can be decorated to match any present. Why not add the wow factor to your gifts by presenting them in your own handmade pillowboxes. I plan to fill mine with jewellery and sweets - although not together!
