Ovals All Pillow Box Make n Take

This one was super dooper fast, great for a quick, easy table decoration or party favour. Or, you could suggest to your loved one that it's also the perfect size for a Pandora bead or 3?? Worth a try anyway, it's my 15th wedding anniversary in a few days time. I wish it was as easy to buy a gift for the blokes. Us girls, we're easy, some stamping goodies and a bead or two will keep us very happy indeed! Check out my Wish List and Gift Voucher Service if your dearest needs a little nudge in the right direction!

Onto the Make n Take...


Old Olive Card Base

Walk in the Park DSP band

So Saffron card scrap

Very Vanilla cardstock scrap

Ovals All stamp set (from the Spring Mini)

Scallop Oval punch (from the Spring Mini)

Large Oval punch

Bella's Bloom stamp set

Versamark Inkpad

The shape was cut out using a Sizzix Pillow box die, but there are lots of free templates available online, that just need a quick snip with scissors instead.

Stamp the small flower from Bella's Bloom all over using Versamark.

Apply Sticky Strip adhesive to the closing edge and assemble the box

Whip the DSP strip around the box and seal. Stamp the oval stamp using ink of choice and punch out, then repeat with the Scallop oval. Mount these together and stick over the join on the DSP strip. DONE! Fill with goodies of choice...
