More Christmas tags today! This time I made a cute pillow box also, so that the tags can be given as a gift. The current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge inspired this idea
The pillow box
Extra Details: I started with half a sheet of water color paper and stamped the penguin images all over it. I added a few smaller images to fill in the black areas. I used water color pencils and a cheap water brush to add the color. I used mostly two shades of green, red, and black. I added some orange for the beaks and feet. I also used a very light blue and light pink for the snow cones, snow balls, and cheeks. Once the water color was dry, I die cut six tag shapes.
I cut the smaller tag from some light green card stock. I inked the edges with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for interest. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I tied the two sizes of tags together with some silver raffia.
To make the pillow box, I used the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Board. I started with a strip of black card stock that measured 6” x 7.5” and created a pillow box. I die cut a stitched circle and decorated it with two penguins. I heat embossed the word “tags” in silver. I added a strip of green card stock and tied the box closed with some silver raffia. I adhered the stitched circle over the top of the green card stock and silver raffia to finish off the box.
