How to make the Victorian Pillow Box:
To make the pillow box use a template or die to cut the pattern. Stamp the entire outside of the box with the Graphic 45® Gilded Lily (flower bouquet) stamp using Colorbox® Spa ink. To give variation to the pattern, stamp one stamp dark and then move below the image and stamp again. The second stamping will be lighter than the first. Continue this pattern to cover the box.
Stamp the center fold line with the decorative line stamp using Colorbox® Teresa Collins Gold Shine ink.
Cut out the desired graphic for the front of the box. Use the Xyron Sticker Maker, following manufacture instructions to turn the graphic into a sticker. Place the graphic on the front of the box and add a border of gold glitter glue. Once glitter glue is dry assemble the box and secure with glue.
Using a Colorbox® Color Blender and Gold Shine ink, distress the ends of the box. Allow ink to dry. Fill box and then tie with a ribbon for a complete pretty package.
These are so fun to make and using different pattern paper and Teresa Collins Inks makes them easy to do! There are 8 Gorgeous, rich, luscious pigment inks to choose from for your next project. I know I need them all! Which ones will you need for your next project?
