This cutie-patootie pillow box is another template creation from Jen Balding at Girl Boy Girl Designs. What I love about it is that there is a twist from a conventional pillow box - it has a squared, flat bottom so it stands up! So I was thinking Easter and decided to make a Bunny Pillow Box - take a look:
The section that is gray is the pillow box itself. I cut it from a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock on my Cameo and the great thing about this template is the fold/score lines are "poked" by the machine in the cutting process. Not sure how to describe that but let me tell you, makes scoring much easier! I assembled the box and then made the bunny face using a Nestabilities circle die. One large circle makes the face, 2 smaller ones for the cheeks (which I lightly outlines with pale pink chalk) and 2 even smaller ones for the eyes. That's it. I colored the eyes with a dark gray Copic marker, leaving a tiny piece white. I also added a little pale pink Copic for the mouth and a couple of hand drawn whiskers using a thin tip pen. Finally, the nose was die cut using a tiny flower die and felt (you could also use another small circle, a heart, etc...)
On the top of the pillow box are two holes which you can use to add a ribbon loop. I chose to thread a ribbon loop up through each hole creating two ribbon ears. Then a little matching bow, added with a glue dot, finishes my Easter Bunny box.
Thanks for hopping by and be sure to stop again soon for more creations and what-not! I love what-not.
Have a good weekend!
