CTMH Customized Pillow Box for a friend using CTMH Tickled Pink Stamp Set, Argyle Backgrounds, Buttoned Together, Framed Moments, Heartfelt Whimsy

One of the things I love the very best about being a papercrafter is the ability to whip up cute customized packaging for small gifts. This little pillow box holds some dark chocolates inside - not a huge gift but a little treat for a wonderful person who needs a bit of pampering. What makes this gift special is that I've customized the packaging with the colors of her business - purple, red and yellow.

Before I get into the details - a quick reminder! Stampaganza is going on from now until November 30th. This is a fabulous Buy 2, Get 1 FREE deal that comes around once in a blue moon so if you enjoy stamping this is a great time to stock up. Get yourself the holiday gift you'd really like to have in your stocking this year!

I started off by stamping the smallest polka dot background stamp from Argyle Backgrounds (one of my favorite sets that is retiring at the end of the year) in a light Buttercup yellow - it shows up better in real life and helps bridge the areas between the flowers. Then I used the Tickled Pink stamp set (special a couple of months ago) to layer Hydrangea (big flower) with Cranberry (red center) and Honey Yellow (very center of the flower). I added a couple of cranberry tiny flowers in between to help tie in the ribbon and a good length of Cranberry Grosgrain wraps the whole thing up. The tag is made with a former hostess special - Framed Moments (everyone should have a nice tag set) and I then added one of the buttons from Buttoned Together at the tip and punched through the whole thing to make a hanger for the tag. The sentiment is from the same set. A sweet little felt flower from Heartfelt Whimsy adhered down with a bit of liquid glass and some sparkles are the finishing touch to a fun customized project.

Materials Used:
Paper: White Daisy Cardstock for the tag, White Pillow Box - from a bulk package at Target in the wedding section
Stamps: Argyle Backgrounds, Buttoned Together, Framed Moments, Tickled Pink
Inks: Hydrangea, Cranberry, Honey, Buttercup
Other: Heartfelt Whimsy Felt Diecuts, Sparkles, Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
