Pillow Boxes~ Artisan Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

Recently, a friend posted an amazing video showing how to make a pillow box using a CD and I just knew I had to make one. Well, they were so much fun I couldn’t stop at one! Using the envelope paper, I made one in each of the 2015-2017 In Colors and embellished them with the beautiful Flourishing Phrases Bundle.

Not only were these so much fun to make, but they would make lovely little gifts for a dinner party or little pillow gifts for overnight guests. They are perfectly sized to hold a decadent chocolate or some other little treat to show someone just how much you care.

The envelope paper is thinner and light weight, so I placed a piece of coordinating cardstock in the bottom of the box and added a little doily, trimmed down to fit. Now it’s ready for what ever little treat I decide to give my guests. I can’t wait!

Sadly, I had provided you with the video to make these cute little boxes, but it is no longer available. I am currently at the hospital with my son who has been very ill and here for two weeks now. I can not make any promises as to when I will get the instructions to you, but I have added it to my list of to dos when all is well and I get my precious boy back home.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Be sure to hop through all 20 designers so you won’t miss any of the fabulous inspiration for the Flourishing Phrases Bundle and the In Color Envelope Paper.

Now it’s time to go see the lovely and talented Rachel. I can’t wait to see what she has made!

Saying Thanks~ Artisan Blog Hop

Flourishing Phrases 3 stampin365.com

Hello friends and welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!

For our “open” week I have a simple but elegant little Thank You gift bag and matching card to share with you. Sometimes, if you need to give several gifts all at once or if you need to put one together at the last minute, it’s nice to have simple projects that go together quickly and easily but show how much you care, and this one does just that!

The beautiful floral sprig from the Flourishing  Phrases Bundle had been sitting on my work space for awhile and I was dying to create a project that made it the focal point. Then, one day as I was working on another project, the Emerald Envy pattern from the Moracan Designer Series Paper caught my eye and this project popped into my head.

For the gift sack, I used the Gift Bag Punch Board and a piece of 6″ x 12″ DSP. The handles are Thick White Baker’s Twine and the tag was made with a 1-3/4″ circle punch.

The flourishing Phrases Stamp Set comes with sentiments for five different occasions and coordinating phrases to add to the inside of your card. As I said before, it’s always nice to have projects ideas that go together quickly, and this project does just that.
