Trick-or-Treat Pillow Box

Pillow_boxThe latest addtion to our Big Shot line of super cute boxes and bags dies is the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Die.

You can cut pillow boxes in record time with this set of dies and the Big Shot. Add windows and accents with the extra dies, that are included in the set. Finished boxes make unique packaging for gift cards, 3" x 3" cards, and small treats and gifts.

 

I had some fun creating this adorable Halloween Treat Box.  I used Rich Razzleberry Cardstock for the box and decorated it with some of the extra dies included in this set.  The trio of pumpkins is a die along with the clipped square I stamped the greeting on.  Speaking of the greeting, Stampin' Up! has designed the perfect stamp set to coordinate with this die set.  It's called A Little Something and you can purchase the die set and the stamp set in a Bundle, saving you 15%.

Halloween_pillow_box
I stamped the box with the spider background stamp from the A Little Something stamp set.  I cut a Spider Web doily in half and attached it to the box.  The greeting piece was run through the Big Shot with the trio of pumpkins die and again with other colors so I could add colored pumpkins.  My ribbon knot was leftover from my Founder's Circle Swaps so it was already tied!!

Holiday Baker's Box

I'm so excited, I leave tomorrow for the Founder's Circle Retreat, you can follow the fun on my Facebook Page.

Here's the perfect way to package some small treats, use our Baker's Box Thinlits Die. Make a treat extra sweet by presenting it in a box you make yourself. Cut handles, windows, and accents to dress up the base box, then fill it with goodies. The die set comes with nine dies and creates a box with the finished size approximately 4-1/8" x 2-1/8" x 2-5/8"

Bakers_box_merryCut your Baker's Box out of our NEW Thick Whisper White Cardstock, this cardstock makes great boxes as well as being the perfect choice for your card bases.  Crop the merry greeting out of Real Red Cardstock.  Stamp the word Christmas with Cucumber Crush ink onto a scrap of Soft Sky and trim.

Stamp the large snowflake image in Soft Sky on the front of the box. Take a wet paintbrush and dip it into a small pool of cucumber Crush ink and flick it all over the box to create the splatter.

Add a strip of the Cucumber splatter print Washi Tape to a Clothespin to keep the box closed.  Add a wood Snowflake Element near the top for some added interest.

Assemble the box with the Tear & Tape Adhesive.  See the video below.
