Decorating a pillow box...


Upcycled-pillow-box

You know how much I love decorating boxes. I tend to get more dimensional on my altered projects than on my layouts [because I prefer them relatively flat in albums!]. *winks*


I started with this pillow box that used to house some Tim Holtz embossing folders [yeah...I'm wondering too if I've ever used them...*LOL*]


After choosing patterned papers, I cut them to size and ran the pieces through my Xyron 5" Creative Station. The pillow box is curved so having an even distribution of adhesive really helps to stick it down well. :)


Then comes my fave part....picking out embellishments to decorate my pillow box. Lots of yummy goodness from the Zeus and Zoe store. :)



The key to creating an interesting embellishment cluster is to mix textures and colours. The possibilities are endless! :)
