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.

So for today’s post I have a short video tutorial on how to make this little Christmas Wreath. You can use it as a decoration for your tree or as decoration to hang on its own elsewhere. I love how I used the circles Thinlits for a totally different project than what is highlighted in the catalogue. So if you have some dies just experiment and see what you can come up with.
