Pillow Gift Box

pt-gold-black-dragonfly-crI love Paper Temptress cardstocks for fast, easy and WOW gift packaging!! This project took only minutes to create. Doesn’t look like it though, right???

I started out by die cuttingRetro Gold Glossy Lustre with a die at a local scrapbooking store. Easy-peasy!! Next, I took one of my favorite dragonfly stamps (strongstamps.com) and embossed it with Stampendous’ PearLustre Gold Embossing powder onto Eclipse Black, then cut out the image. To create a little extra flair, I repeated the same process and cut out the wings, shaped them with my fingers, and attached them on top of the first image. I love the way this paper takes embossing and shaping!!!

Since I love the swirly patterns of the Retro Gold Gloss Lustre, I stamped the sentiment onto Retro Black Gloss Lustre to match the overall theme of the box. I can’t get enough of these cardstocks!!!

The box is held closed with a black satin ribbon.

What a fun and easy project that literally took only a few minutes!! See what great cardstock can do for your crafting? It makes things so easy, so beautiful and save you lots of time!! All that extra time to shop for more!!! 🙂 🙂

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day filled with paper dreams!!
