Polka Dot Pillow Box

I’ve had the Kraft Pillow Boxes in my new goodies basket for ages and with the new catalogue approaching I thought it was time I did something with them. Going with the dots printed on them I decided to embrace the polka dots and work with similar products.

I knew I also wanted to use the wooden button elements out of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue as these will be gone next week. Looking for a dotty type paper I chose the Soft Soft Seafoam and Night of Navy pattern out of the Tranquil Textures DSP. This also worked well as meant I could colur my butterfly with the matching Stampin’ Blends.

The Night of Navy layer measures 17.5cm x 8cm, scored at 8cm and 16cm enabling you to fold around the box and secure it closed with the additional little flap, for this I used Tear ‘n’ Tape. The DSP layer measures 17.cm x 7cm and was again scored at 8cm and 16cm.

To create the ruffle at the edge I used the Whisper white Polka DotTulle Ribbon folded onto a strip of Tear ‘n’ Tape. To continue with the dotty theme I added a sentiment from Climbing Roses stamped on the dot edged fram from the Rose Trellis.

To finish the box off I added the wooden butterfly which had been coloured with Stampin’ Blends. To give the Seafoam layer more definition I coloured it also with wink of Stella to give some sparkle. The butterfly was adhered with quite a few mini glue dots as I wanted to use a dry adhesive.

I love how this turned out and think it would make a lovely table favour for any special occasion or just filled with treats to give to that special someone.

Floral Friday – Climbing Roses

As its Friday I thought I’d share one of my Floral Friday projects with you this week and today’s card was made using the Climbing Roses Bundle. Roses are one of my favourite flowers so I’ve loved having this lovely big image to sit and colour.

After adding the greeting’s panel it looked a little lost so I added a few of the smaller roses to help it blend in with my rose background more.

I really love how this card turned out and it was nice to break away from my normal card size and make a 5″ square tent fold card for a change.
