Really, a week!

I can't believe it has been a week since I posted here... aside of having a bad cold myself, our whole house had it ... except our wee doggie.  I'm sure Kleenex and Sorbent love us!

Today I share with you a pillow gift box.... I created it from a template (which was actually an old crushed pillow gift box!).  Instead of using cardstock, I used the side of a thick and glossy preloved gift bag.  It was easy to cut and fold, except for the rounded folds at the top and bottom! They always crease.

I wanted a fun and colourful topper or tag for it, so I  used the SNB image "Herbert Gnome".  Not a traditional Christmas image, but he looks great in red and green!

Ingredients: Preloved Gift bag; White cardstock; Glitter Pens - Red Green, Black; Shin coloured Le Plume Marker, Organza Ribbon; Organza Flower...

I coloured and trimmed the image, and readied it with DS tape, while I fiddled with the box.  I measured a length of white organza ribbon, tied it around the box, and tied a bow in it.  I added a red organza poinsettia to top the bow.  When the inked image was completely dry, I peel the protective layer from the DS tape, and fixed the image across the ribbon securely - the ribbon will be able to be retied.  Voila! A simple but cheery gift wrap for a wee pressie!  Thanks for peepin'!
