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.

Balmy Blue Bottle Birthday Card

Today I’ve gone for all the B’ and used Balmy Blue and the Bubble Over stamp set to make a boy themed birthday card and I love how its turned out.

I love how the bubble paper from the Tranquil Textures DSP highlights the tone on tone bubbles stamped on my card base.

I’m loving the addition of Balmy Blue to our line up, its a shade of blue I think we’ve been lacking since Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue retired years ago and I think Balmy Blue is the perfect mix of both of these colours. It also looks stunning with Night of Navy which makes me happy as this is a colour I find tricky to use. 

Hope you have enjoyed this look project mixing old and new products.
