My last post featured the Acorny Thank You stamp set and Acorn Builder Punch bundle featured in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday catalog. I continue with that theme again with today’s featured projects. The Acorny Thank You Bundle makes creating all the projects I am featuring this week so quick and easy, but especially these two.
I created the “Grateful” Square Pillow Box first. I cut a window opening in the front so the colorful candies – or whatever
treat you choose to put inside – will peek through. (I was so thankful our local stores already had some holiday wrapped candies!) I then stamped the pillow box pieces with the Hardwood background stamp, and created the accent pieces to add even more color and texture. They were attached with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Note: Be sure to glue the Window Sheet in place before filling the pillow box!
I used the piece of card stock from the window opening on the Pillow Box as part of the focal point on the card front. I chose to attempt the “ever so popular” use of swirled Silver Cording Trim as an accent on the card. I like the way the pattern from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper collection coordinates so well with the acorn theme and the Hardwood Background stamp.Square
Who would like to find one of these in their mail box sometime next month?!? Leave a comment below and it just could be you… minus the candy though!
