Happy Tuesday! Today I’m sharing with you a new die from Stampin’ Up! in the Holiday Catalog. I know I’ve been sharing a lot from a catalog you can’t even order from yet (sorry), but you will on September 1 and this is something you are going want! It’s the Square Pillow Box die. Here’s my first one…
Isn’t this just the cutest thing? I can just see it filled with goodies, or jewelry, or even a small gift for Christmas or any other gift giving occasion. I believe that gifts should come in packaging just as nice and beautiful as the gift itself and I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! has so many choices for us to make for us to make our own packaging using cardstock, or Designer Series Paper, maybe even Glimmer Paperl, Oooh that would be gorgeous! The other container dies that Stampin’ Up! has are Fry Box Bigz L Die, Berry Basket Bigz L, Hamburger Box Bigz XL, Cutie Pie Thinlits, Baker’s Box Thinklits, Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. The Square Pillow Box Thinlit die is very easy to use and comes with dies to cut windows into your box so the recipient can get a preview of what’s inside. The ends don’t need to be glued shut so stuffing them is easy and you can easily reclose.
I added a belly band made out of 1″ of Designer Series Paper from the Sweet Li’L Things pack. I really like this paper, it has a Very Vanilla background with little dots and circles in lots of different soft colors. I added a bow made with the Bow Builder Punch out of Calypso Coral paper. The Box is made with Calypso Coral too.
I put the belly band around the short side so the ends that open are able to be opened with the band in place. What do you think? What would you fill this cute box with? I’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts, won’t you leave me a comment?
Here’s another look at the box I made with the Square Pillow Box Thinlit Die.
All of the supplies can be purchased at my website Sweethoneystampingspot.stampinup.net The die can be purchased after September 1. So why don’t you go and create something cute for somebody today!
