Wednesday!! Angels Landing Pillow Box Day!

Well it is Wednesday, and Wednesday is Angels Landing Day this summer! For today, all the design team members are highlighting the Pillow Box template that you receive when you purchase the Pierced Background set. Once I started, I couldn't stop, so I have three different samples for you today. You will love the versatility of this template! and it is SO easy to put together!



For my first project today, I used the template from the Pierced Backgrounds set, and a tag from the Pierced tag set to create a cute little Baby Shower favor! How cute is this???? I just printed the template on some designer paper, used my coluzzle to cut out an oval, and covered the oval on the inside with a piece of acetate.



This shows the yummy jelly beans inside! I love the colors of these beans! For the tag, I just printed the pink tag that comes in the set, and attached it to some layered prima flowers for a pretty embellishment.



Now for a different look, a graduation favor! This would be great for a young man (or a young lady), and has a more formal look. This time, I printed the template on vellum, and pierced the meander pattern from the Pierced Backgrounds set all over the paper. I love the paper pierce...very relaxing!!



For a more formal look, I printed a tag from the Pierced Tag collection, after changing the color to a red. I thought this would work well for someone who has the school colors of red and black! You could change the colors to any combination! The black paper band wraps the box, and the tag is attached with brads. The graduation cap is just clipart I printed and punched before attaching.



This is my favorite of the three sets. I printed the template on some designer paper, and designed a cute little set that could be used to hold a wedding gift (gift card perhaps??), or even bridesmaids gifts!



For this box, I wrapped organza ribbon around it and tied with some wisps off to the side. The flower is the daisy from the Pierced Flowers collection that I printed in two different sizes, then colored. The flowers are layered with dimensionals and topped off with a dew drop.

A matching gift card is so easy! I took another flower and simply mounted it on designer paper and white 3x3 gift card. It is a little hard to see, but I printed the flowers on SU! Shimmery White paper, so it has a really pretty glisten to it.

That was fun! What other pillow box ideas do you have?? Please be sure to stop by all the design team members, you will find them on the left! Also check out Judi's Angels Landing Blog and store for more product information! I cannot wait to see what they all have some up with!

Even more exciting...next week we will have a new Angels Landing release!!! More fun!
