Since my area is going through a heat wave, I’ve been thinking about snow! I thought of doing something with the Square Pillow Box Thinlits™ Dies and decided to try them with the Sleigh Ride Edgelits™ Dies. This is the result!
I made a Pillow Box in my Gift Packaging Class but my first sample didn’t turn out well. For today’s article, I decided to cover it up with Island Indigo paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack. The box was already assembled, so I cut off the side flaps of the paper panels and glued one to each side. This works better than trying to assemble the Pillow Box pieces and then gluing them to the underneath box. The original box was made from Kraft 12” x 12” Card Stock, so the finished covered box is nice and strong.
Note on gluing with the Stampin’ Glue Sticks: coat the covering in stages because the glue comes undone if you coat the paper all at once and then have to move it into place. It is quick-drying.
I wanted a ribbon-like strip made from the Edgelits, so I die-cut the sleigh and horse image from a 5-1/2” x 6” piece of Whisper White 8-1/2” x 11” Card Stock. As I finished each die-cut, I lined it up with the 1” mark on the Stampin’ Trimmer and cut off the excess. This gave a thin strip with the sleigh and horse on it. I adhered each trim piece with SNAIL Adhesive on the bottom and Glue Stick on the sleigh and horse. Instead of wrapping the ends around the box, I trimmed them at the sides. This keeps it neat because the ends don’t match.
