A Simple Pillow Box

Hello Blog friends, thank you so much for your comments on my last Post.  I have been missing for so long it was nice to know I have not been completely forgotten, Thank You.
I hope you have all managed to survive Storm Henry.  Man! Oh! Man! we have certainly been getting terrible weather this year.
Just a quick port for today.  I have a Pillow Box to show you.  A friend of mine asked if I had seen the Sizzex Show on Hochanda.  I don`t watch these Craft Shows.  Every time I have clicked on to see what they are selling or promoting it always seems to be the same things. 
Anyway my dear friend told me they were showing a wonderful  Die to make a Pillow Box which was much bigger than the XCut one which I use a lot.  She felt it would be a good size for me to pop my Pendants in.  I Trawled and found the Die at Country View Crafts for the amazing price of £18.20 P&P Free.  
You need one whole sheet of A4 Card to make the Box but Wow! its well worth it.
Here is the first one I made:-

Finished Size is 6 x 4 Inches.
I used  Anna Marie`s Dotty Card plus a bit of Lilac from my Bit Box
A Gem from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I got lots of these in their sale, I don`t know if the will still have them but its worth going having a look.
That`s it from me for today
Thank You so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

  8. Hi Patricia,
    oh this is sooooooo! gorgeous.
    Love the design of this, and what a very handy die to have in ones collection.
    That card used us so pretty.
    I do love dotty card and paper.
    Country View are a super craft place as they never charge postage, and that's always a bonus.
    Their delivery is quite quick also.
    Another super place to buy from is Sunrise Crafts they don't charge postage over £10 and you get it the next day if you order before 3pm.

  17. Hi Patricia, so lovely to have a visit from you & a new post to enjoy your wonderful box. What a treasure this is, & what a wonderful presentation for a gift. Love the paper cheery. Enjoyed your earlier post...brrr & so bad about the flooding. I hear you about the S.A.D. (think I may have it as well.) Hope you get some dry weather & some sunshine soon. Stay cheery. Hugs
