First Festive Friday post...HERE
Precious Remembrance post...HERE
OK...one last post for today...I PROMISE! HAD to do this MIM challenge because I absolutely LOVED Ashley's pillow boxes with the release of the "With all my Heart" set (I think that's the name of it;), and because I tried something new with a pillow box just yesterday that I had so much fun with! I made a clay embellishment with an image from one of my Precious Remembrance sets and LOVED how it turned out. I used it to dress up a PTI pillow box so I thought, how easy to carry this out with a pretty PTI image for the MIM challenge (creating and dressing out pillow boxes or other small packages/bags/favors). Here's the embellishment I made with clay using Tags for Spring and Heart Prints...
I think there was a MIM on the clay embellishments awhile back by Betsy, but you can see how I made mine with some photos and extra details HERE.
For the pillow box, I stamped some Rustic Cream cardstock with a simple polka dot background and cut one end off just below the score lines before assembling to create an open ended box or pocket. I found that it was the perfect size for a pack of Valentine M&M's to slide right in...
You can see I gathered and adhered some ribbon to the top edge, and tied a pretty bow around the box before tying on the embellishment...
And that's it! I kept it simple, but liked that look with the large embellishment and all the color from the M&M's showing.
Gotta git!!! I'm sure I've gone over my budgeted crafting time this week...and I KNOW there's laundry and other cleaning calling my name!!!;)
Thanks so much for visiting today!!!
