Merry Pillow Box

Playing along with the Global Design Project again this week and the challenge is Christmas.  So many possibilities…..

GDP011 Theme - Christmas

While I do love making and sending cards, I especially love making 3D gifts to personally hand out.  So that’s what I thought I would make for this challenge.

For my little gift, I used so many of my favorite products from the Holiday catalog.  First, the fabulous Square Pillow Box Thinlits Die is such a versatile die that I have used many times since purchasing it.  This die is scheduled to retire with the Holiday catalog but will still be working hard in my craft room!  It made such a pretty box using red foil cardstock.   However, I think the star of the project is the beautiful wreath from the Peaceful Wreath stamp set.  This wreath is really easy and fast to color, not to mention relaxing too.  I used some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the berries to give it a little more sparkle.  Lastly, the sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Die.  I did use a die from the Circles Collection Framelits to cut a window and used a window sheet so my matching Hershey Kisses would show.

I think this is literally such a sweet gift that would be sure to please anyone.  What I like most is how people who do not enjoy this fantastic hobby, are so impressed by these little projects.  But we all know how much fun they are to make, too!

I have so many more ideas for this Pillow Box, so I  better get on that…..stay tuned!

Thanks for checking in on my project today.  Hope you enjoyed it!
