For my project I decided to use the Sweet Treats Block image that I picked up at the Warehouse sale recently. I decided it would be cute if I used some of this wonderful Bella Press Decorative Dots pattern paper to create a pillow box.
First I trimmed my pattern paper to 8 1/2 x 11 so I could run it through my printer. I then printed a pillow box pattern that I found online onto the reverse side of the paper. I then cut out, scored, and glued my pillow box together.
I then stamped the image onto cardstock and used my Copics and chalk to color it in. I then mounted it onto the blue cardstock and trimmed around the image...and then repeated that with the pink cardstock. I then used some wonderful hot pink ribbon to wrap around the box.
I added my stamped image to the box front using foam tape.
I can't wait to sneak this under the tree for my good friend with her gift enclosed.
From here you'll want to hop over to Tenia's blog to see what awesome project she has for you...
