Pillow Gift Box

Hiya crafty friends,

It's Wednesday! So that means it my DT day with Clare Curd Crafts.

This week I got my fingers inky making a pillow gift box. With Christmas just around the corner, I think I will be making a few more of these in the coming weeks.

I cut my pillow box from white card

Using paper from the Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two Patterned Paper Mini Deck, I cut some inlays for the front, back and sides of the box. Which I then coloured with some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink to give a aged look

 I also cut some pieces to make a bow.

Once  the ink was dry on the patterned paper, I adhere them to the box.

I attached the straps the to bow

And then I placed it onto the box (I didn't stick it to the box, so it was removable)

On one of the straps I added some slits so the bow could taken off easily.

As a finishing touch, I used the Paula Pascual Stamps - Circle Tags set to make a tag.

Thanks for popping in.
See you next week
