Extending The Square Pillow Box Die (VIDEO) - Hostess Gift With Embellished Ornaments

This pretty box contains a gift for my Party Hostesses :o) 

Yesterday I showed you the Party Bags I created for my Autumn / Winter catalogue Launch Event. Everyone booking a Party at this Event received a special Party Bag containing everything they needed for their Party ..... plus some gifts from me :o) 

This box contained some fabulous Stampin' Up! product :o) 

It is decorated using the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. 

The box was created using the Square Pillow Box die ..... BUT I extended the size to make it longer. It's really simple to do and I have created a Video showing you how. 

To make the Pillow Box you just need two pieces of card stock that are 5" wide (12.5cm). They can be as long as you want :o)

For the above box I used 2 pieces that were the width of our standard European A4 card (21cm / 8 ¼").

You can also cut the card long-ways to make an even longer box - or you can use 12"x12" card or paper.  

NOTE: if you do this, I recommend that once you have cut out both pieces with the Big Shot, you use a pencil and ruler to continue the 'cut' lines on each side of the box before you trim them away - this will ensure that they are straight when you are finished :o)


You Can Create It! Is an International Monthly Challenge.

Are You Up For The Challenge And Ready To Join Us ....?
