Matching Pillow Box

I decided tonight to make a little pillow box to match the card from yesterday. These are such quick little gift boxes, there's lots of tutorials on splitcoaststampers on how to, I just can't find the linky right now! They're ideal to pop a gift voucher in, some sweets, a silk scarf, but I think this one shall end up with seeds in to go with the card:) I'm entering in again at Pile it On for purple and Creative Inspirations which is anything but a card. I've kept the box quite simple but I think it's 'enough' iykwim:)

Stuff I used: dcwv metallic stack, prima flowers, papermania brads, lace from stash, basic grey wisteria paper. For card 'stuff' see previous post.

Have had a fun day today, this morning I took Leo to a new toddler group and met a really nice lady there and Leo absolutely loved it. Then this afternoon mum brought a sandpit home, you wouldn't believe how difficult it is to get hold of one right now, everyone has sold out! So Leo was a happy chappy playing the sand this afternoon with his spade. Lisa also made me my very own personalised banner! Am thrilled with it! Looks soooo cool don't you think?! Huge huge thanks to Lisa for that! Hope everyone else has had a good day too and wohooooo it's the weekend! Catch you all tomorrow!

  2. Hi Rowena I love this gorgeous duo the papers and colours just match so perfect and that image is lovely. I just had to visit and see your new banner I saw it on Lisa's blog but wanted to see what it looked like on the blog and wow what a stunner. Lisa is making one for me as well can't wait to see what she comes up with isn't she a wonderful lady.
