Little pillow boxes

Hi again, told you i would be back.

Right! in what little spare time i have had, I have been making little pillow boxes.

I have managed to make 6 so far and hope to get more done soon,

I would like to sell them at 50p each the template to make them cost under £4.00 so I need to sell at least 8 of them to get my money back then then the 50p will cover the items put on the boxes.

I have found these quick and easy to make which is fun as i can spend more time thinking of what to put on them.

I have so much card stock from sales so it's nice to use all the A5 sheets to make these. It wouks out at one pillow per A5 sheet with a little bit to spare for bordering and stuff.

I hope to try & use card that has been embossed

with my cuttlebug for the next lot. I think this will give them a much professinal look. I might even have a go at making them with patterned paper though i dont want them to look to busy or garish.

I have found the nestibilites butterfly punch just the right size and have been using up my stickers as well.

Which in truth is very good becasue i want to use up as much of my stuff as possible then i can start buying fresh and wont just buy cause it looks nice i will put more thought in to my purchases.

I will be updating again on Monday...... I think, so till then ....
Best wishes to everyone take care and happy crafting.

Great boxes Nikola! You're putting me to shame as I've not used my template yet! You're also putting me to shame trying to use your stash up before buying anymore, you know what I'm like!!
Look forward to seeing what else you come up with.
Happy Easter!
