Big Shot Class with the Pillow Box

This month's class showed different ways of using the Pillow Box Bigz Die.

Now you may have seen the Owl before, it has been re-created dozens of times by others and I have had a pictured stored in my favourites for ages, waiting for the chance to make it myself, it is just sooooo cute, don't you think?

This is an extended version of the Pillow Box, and I just love this colour combo of Soft Suede, Regal Rose, Peach Parfait and So Saffron.  The 3D flower was put together using the 5 Petal Flower Punch and the teeny tiny flower in the middle is one of the "Itty Bitty" Punches, finished with a co-ordinating brad!

The "Happy Birthday" greeting is from the Hostess set called "Something To Celebrate" which is soon to retire.

Next we made a little gift bag using two of the die cut pillow boxes, I haven't seen one of these before but I am sure that someone has created one somewhere out there in the crafting world!  We used the "Perfect Polka Dots" Embossing Folder on the So Saffron Panels and again used the 5 Petal Flowers for decoration.  We added a strip of Soft Suede Card to create our handle and of course created a base inside so that our goodies won't fall out!!

And of course, not forgetting Mr Owl, he is just soooo cute, you can't help but love him!  Lots of punches used here but a really inexpesive gift if filled with some sweet treats or costume jewellery!

Hope you have enjoyed our projects for this month, do leave a comment so that I know you stopped by!
