I created a very simple gift - that can be used for ANY occasion!!! 
A decorated pillow box!

I used our clear pillow boxes - they are ONLY $2.95 for a set of 3 of these boxes!!  I love that you have SO MANY options to fill this box!

Here are just a few ideas in filling this box…
  • chocolate candy to brighten someone's day
  • Bath salts to treat a friend to a relaxing break
  • potpourri to scent the room your in
  • a teacher’s gift to say “Thank You” for a job well done 
  • FUN embellishments & sparkles for your creative friend

Read on for details on the creation of this box….

The flower was created from "Key D" of the Artbooking cartridge...
I'm so THANKFUL that CTMH chose to continue to have a 3d flower on the Artbooking cartridge!!  

The flourish of leaves, comes from the "Key 9" of this cartridge.  

The Frame Flair stamp set coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge...and I used the Square 5 shape. 

I hope this has INSPIRED you to create your OWN giftable item!
