This weeks sketch - 
This is my project as inspired by this weeks sketch, I went with a pillow box this time instead of a card.

Today's project is a very different interretation of the sketch. It is also really quick to make. I made this in under 30min and that includes designing it on the spot and 'winging it'. I die cut 2 pieces of rich razzleberry with the pillow box die. I then cut 2 pieces out with the squares that come with that die. I cut one large and one small. I also cut a large square from the centre of one of the pillow box sides. This then became my front.

I stamped the middle size snowflake from flurry of wishes in whisper white craft ink. I think this looks nice and simple but also has a pop at the same time. I also stamped on the large and small squares with the same stamp and ink.

I cut a piece of window sheet and stuff that to the inside of the box with glue dots, this was to cover up the hole I cut in the front panel. This added another layer of dimension. I then stuck both sides of the box together with fast fuse. A couple of the corners needed an extra glue dot to keep the box realy sturdy and secure.

I wrapped a piece of whisper white organza ribbon around the lower half with the two ends meeting at the window sheet. I stuck these down with a glue dot and then covered that up with the 2 squares I had cut and stamped on. These were added with dimensionals and I off set layered them onto the front.

I didn't add a sentiment this time as I thought the snowflakes were enough to make the project pop. This way I can add a sentiment once I am ready to use it as well. This is a good sized box and will fit a variety of things inside for Christmas.

As always I will be honest and share I used Tim Holtz scissors and my Tim Holtz Vagabond die machine but I have included a link to the Stampin' Up! options. I would prefer to use them as your all know but sadly my disability won't allow it.
