Timeless Tropical Kraft Pillow Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a quick little idea on how to make a super quick tropical gift for someone.  Well, at least the packaging any way. The Timeless Oasis Suite of products can make for a fun package when paired with the Kraft Pillow Boxes.  I am going to share with you how to decorate the pillow box and how to make a tag for it as well.  Here's a look at my quick and simple little project.

Tips & Tricks:

The kraft pillow boxes are a great tool to have in your stash for quick gift giving ideas that you can decorate.  I am sad that they are leaving but I know we are getting something just a great for gift packaging.  As of this posting of the project they are still available in the last chance list on my website.  I started out my project by stamping the large flower in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink and used the matching die to cut it out.  I also stamped three of the large flowers in Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink and cut them out also.  All the stamping was done on a half sheet of Whisper White cardstock but you could use scraps that matches the sizes you need.

Next I wrapped a 2" x 7" piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper around the pillow box and secured it with a little Tear & Tape.  So you could make a lot of these with a little designer series paper.   Once I had everything wrapped I took about 30" or so of the Braided Burlap Ribbon and pulled three of four strands from it.  I wanted a very textural bow that was easy to tie and this was a great solution.  I love the look of the texture from the pieces of the ribbon against the clean lines of the pillow box.

I then started by adding my stamped images to the front of the pillow boxes with Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.  I then stamped my sentiment and used the Label Me Lovely Punch and punched it out.  But, if you notice the sentiment punch out doesn't look anything like that punch.  Well I used it again and relined up my sentiment piece and punched it out smaller to create a new shape.  I popped this up on Stampin' Dimensionals as well to finish off the pillow box.

Again I am in love with these pillow boxes and very sad that they are on the last chance list.  I think they make perfect gift packaging for last minute gifts or even to pop in a gift card.  If you want to grab some please do so soon before they are gone.  All I can tell you is that they are still listed on the website, but I have no idea how many are available so there's a chance they could sale out any day.  Everything on the last chance list is while supplies last; the stamps are guaranteed to be in stock until May 22, 2020 and they after that they are also while supplies last.
