The first BAP from http://www.creativekuts.com for 2013 is a Valentine theme Pillow Shape Box. This is the first time I made a Pillow Shaped Box and turned out very well.
First of all, I cut two pillow shape boxes out using light weight poster board on Silhouette Cameo and cut like a dream. I done this so the box will retain it’s shape in mailing to Korea for Valentine gifts to my granddaughters. Next I cut the same box shape using designer paper … here I used a Valentine themed paper.
Cut the frog and sentiment from card stock, and ran it through my sticker maker machine…good way of getting the pieces to remain permanently. I purchased a package of Valentine brads at Wal-mart in their .97 cent bin recently and placed the brad in right hand corner.
I used permanent adhesive tape and Tacky Glue to adhere the paper to the poster board since I am having problems of whatever I am working with staying glued (and I end up reworking the whole project again..ugh). I trimmed a square from the protective covering for the Cricut mat and placed behind the opening so the candy will not fall out … LOL
Since the original piece is poster board and I don’t believe the adhesive will be strong enough to stay, I used two bronze color brads where it comes together to create the box. Once finished I folded the sides and a ribbon will be added when I get ready to mail these..
