Pillow Box Bucket and a Special

2:18 PM Edit This 2 Comments »
Hello! Wanted to share a really neat project I made with a Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial. It's a Pillow Box Bucket. I love when you can find different uses for things. The Pillow Box Die is cut out 3 times and assembled (with a little trimming) to make this:
I used Real Red Cardstock and the new, super yummy Christmas Cocoa Sepcialty DSP from the Holiday Mini. This paper is flocked! The sentiment is from a Level 2 Hostess set, Chistmas Punch. I loved Beate's idea of stamping off the damask image from Friends 24/7 for a background. I also took Jan Tink's idea of crimping a scallop border and wrapping it around the oval to fit. I omitted the handle - I thought it looked a little nicer this way. Can't wait to fill it with candy and put out around the holidays.
World Card Making Day Special: Are you particpating? Come to my Stamp Camp or make one on your own! or maybe you're planning your holiday cards? ALL orders from now til Saturday, Oct. 3rd will go in a drawing for a free stamp set! I have a whole box of sets to pick from. For every 4 orders, I'll draw a name.

Love this idea. I don't use the pillow box as much as I should. Do you have a link or directions for making this?

I saw the tutorial and loved the idea. Your box is beautiful. I love it. I now have some ideas floating through my head of what to put in it.

Thanks for sharing
