Sweet Birthday Wishes

The Angels Landing design theme for today is Pillow Boxes! A free template for this simple pillow box comes with the Pierced Backgrounds Digi-Stamps set.

My BasicGrey archaic/rock designer paper is an ideal weight for this box. I cut, scored, folded the box, and sealed it at each end with a one inch strip of Scor-Tape. A slotted tab on the back makes it easy to insert the birthday surprise of your choice!

I decided to decorate my pillow box with this precious sugar glider from the Aussie Animals collection. I printed it on white Georgia Pacific card stock, cut it out, and colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and oderless mineral spirits. What a cutie!!

I put a double belly band of Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery around the pillow box and popped up the sugar glider on dimensionals. Using punches, I created the fern and flowers to slip under him.

To complete my box I added a birthday Pierced Tags which I had pierced and sponged with ink. I added a punched butterfly and more fern before pulling a ribbon through the tag and tying a pretty bow!

Head over to the Angels Landing blog and check out the wonderful pillow boxes created by Angels Landing's other designers!!
