Peaceful Moments Shimmery Pillow Box. Welcome back to my blog. As promised yesterday, I have a 3D item for you today, although it is a bit of a cheat. Why a cheat? Because I have used one of our really useful Kraft Pillow Boxes, but decorated it so it is really pretty and perfect for a small gift. You get an amazing 10 of these boxes in a pack, so they are really great value for last minute gift giving. I chose to use the Peaceful Moments Bundle from the new Spring/Summer Mini Catalogue, which goes ‘Live’ to customers tomorrow, so not long to wait now.
To start the decoration, I cut a mask from a scrap of card, using the background die, and then used this to add some texture to the front of the box, simply by adding some Shimmery White Embossing Paste. I flipped the die so I could add the texture across the whole of the front, then set it to one side to dry. Remember to wash your Tools quickly to avoid the paste drying onto them, I simply threw my mask away because it was made from a scrap, so saves on clearing up. While this was drying I got on with cutting the other pieces I needed.
I used most of the dies from the Poppy Moments set, layering them up to create the 3D effect flowers and leaves. The colour inspiration came from the Designer Series Paper from the suite (Peaceful Poppies). I chose Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Basic Black, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. Having die cut the pieces, I simply layered them up using Multi Purpose Liquid Glue.
When you add the die cuts to the front of the box, allow some time for them to adhere properly, The multi Purpose Liquid Adhesive is great for this, but you do need to add something over the top to keep the dies in place until the adhesive is fully dry; a Block is perfect for this.
While everything was drying I heat embossed my chosen sentiment using the Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Annual Catalogue. I wanted this to be as narrow as possible, so having finished the heat embossing I used the Mini Guillotine to cut it to size. The Mini Guillotine is part of the Sale-a-Bration Joining Offer.
