What beautiful fall weather we are having here in Ohio with cooler days and gorgeous fall leaves.
I have something a little different to share with you today. You know those clear plastic pillow boxes that some embossing folder sets come in? I decorated one as a pretty gift box featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon along with Donna Salazar Designs Antiquities paper.
Pillow Gift Box
Tips and Techniques:
Bonnie is now carrying the Zutter Bow-it-All in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. I used it to created this gorgeous double loop bow using Silky Crush Champagne Ribbon. I scrunched the ribbon and tacked into place using Helmar 450 Quick Drying Glue. The portion of the ribbon wrapped around the box is adhered with Scor-Tape.
I trimmed the top of the gift box with gorgeous Juliet Natural Crochet Lace. This lace has a lot of give and curved around the "pillow" top beautifully!!
I used my new Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two dies. The slots in the sides of these dies is just perfect to thread this gorgeous ribbon through.
I have a thing for beautiful jewelry findings and this beautiful black piece by Tori Spelling is a recent find. I love the dangling chain segments which add so much motion to this piece.
These Wild Orchid Crafts flowers make such a lovely cluster above the bow. I added a berry sprig from my stash. I inked the edges of the die cut pieces to help them pop.
I hope you've been inspired to pull out your stash of Really Reasonable Ribbon lace, ribbon, flowers, tools and adhesives to transform some packaging into a beautiful gift box.
Thanks for stopping by! I treasure your comments.
