Sitting down with a tool in mind instead of color, design, or even a sentiment can get a bit interesting. I wanted to make a quick pillow box with a new punch board I just bought and needed some paper that was six inches wide. Sounds like an easy start, right?
The only thing I had at the ready was a retired velum stack, not the easiest stuff to make boxes with. But, I was trying to be quick, so I stuck with it. The board wasn’t too tricky, but I was scared of tearing the paper, so I was a bit timid. It managed to work out.
I thought it needed a matching card and this little number came together. But I kept on getting held up on embellishments. Little flowers on top, nope, coloring, nope, tags, nope. So, I just left it as is and called it all occasion. Good enough? It was for me. And it turned out that my daughter needed a little thank you gift and card this morning, so treats went in and smiles will happen.
Have a creative day!
