Silhouette Sunday...Oh! What Fun!!

With my renewed crush on my Silhouette, I've decided to start a new series for the ol' blog: Silhouette Sunday.  Hopefully, it'll catch on like football and Sunday - they'll just go hand in hand!

If you missed yesterday's post - I shared an adorable Halloween Treat Ensemble. I'm still giddy over that little project!  You can click here to find it.

Today, I've created another giftable item, and this one combines the use of the Silhouette and Big Shot.  

I used a pillow box cut file to create the box - which I made rather large.  It's about 4 x 6 1/2" assembled.  I think that's a nice size for giving jewelry or other small gifts.  Here I used Coastal Cabana card stock, then grabbed the polka dot template from the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit, a sponge dauber, and Very Vanilla Ink to create the pattern.  {love} 

I wrapped a piece of Burlap ribbon around the box.  I used a bit of sticky strip to keep it in place, but where it overlaps, I secured it with a Vintage Trinket safety pin - because I needed something cute to attach the tag with!

For the tag, I stamped the sentiment on Crumb Cake CS, with Bermuda Bay ink, then splattered it with some Vanilla Smooch Spritz.

Lastly, I die cut all of the Festive Flurry snowflakes from cream colored felt, stitched a Vintage Faceted button to them and glued them to the box with Multipurpose Glue.  

Done!  Adorable?  What do you think?  I'd really like to hear from you - so I'll give you a bit of encouragement to leave a comment!  How about some blog candy???

I'll choose one lucky commenter next Sunday, and they will receive this *adorable* (if I do say so myself!) pillow box plus! the Hello, Lovely stamp set!  

So, go on now....what are you waiting for?  Leave me a comment below!
