I made a pillow box for the first Out of a Hat Creations challenge. The challenge this week is a box – make one, alter one or decorate one.
To make my little box, I drew around the template on to a piece of card stock, cut it out and covered it with pretty papers. All the embellishments where added before the box was made up. I used a die to cut out the large flower.
The papers I used, although are a very nice quality, cracked down the seem. Some times this happens some times it doesn’t. I quite like the shabby effect so I scraped a little bit more at the edges with a craft knife. These stick pins are lovely but I have put a tiny peace of cork on the end of the one I used here. The pointed end is a bit scary!
These were really fun to make so I made a couple more to put in the present drawer. They are quite handy to have in stock. Nice for wedding favours as well.
Stamps used Crafty Individuals.
The ribbon and the toppers on all of these have been sewn on.
Stamps used: Chocolate Baroque.
Just to share. These boxes are not a new idea and have been around for years. There are no doubt lots of different templates available on the internet.
