The theme for my 25 Days of Christmas Crafting today is Bells to coincide with Die Cuttin’ Divas’ challenge, Bells Will be Ringing! Jingle bells, Christmas bells, sleigh bells, you name it. This is the pillow box I had so much trouble with awhile ago. How frustrating! But I finally got it done. One. I was going to make four but I decided to quit while I was ahead.
My Jingle Bell is from Miss Kate’s Cuttables. It was a freebie a couple of weeks ago. I had some trouble cutting it out, so I omitted the white layer, which didn’t want to cut on my machine that day, and used a white gel pen instead for the “highlight.” I also was not successful cutting out the little sprig of greens, which would have looked so pretty.
The pillow box I originally wanted to use was from My Scrap Chick – Ho Ho Ho Pillow box, but it got stuck to my mat and I got mad at it
so instead, I used an old mat and cut out the pillow box from the Cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy. I embossed it using a folder that came with my eBosser and wrapped it up with Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine, which is gorgeous! I love the colors in that one.
and here’s the link if you want to share your Bell project for my 25 Days of Christmas Crafting.
