Gift/Favour box

Hello! It's Saturday and such a great day all round. This morning I had a couple of lovely ladies over to play with ideas for weddings. We made this pillow box, using the Big Shot pillow box die, and then decorated it.

The box was cut out using Rose Red and then clear embossed with Chocolate Chip ink using the Wedding Sweet set. The edges were distressed using the same colour ink and a Sponge Dauber.

The flower was punched out of Chocolate Chip CS and then scrunched up. We then separated the two layers of card to create a faux suede look and distressed the edges again. The scrummy button in the middle is from the Mini catalogue - this is a "small" one!!!

These would make lovely wedding favour or gift boxes and are really simple to make using the Big Shot.

Today we had fun at the Aldershot & Fleet rugby club and the park. So nice to just relax and enjoy being a family together - the Bank Holiday weekends are now even more keenly anticipated! Have a great weekend!!
