Anything But a Card - A Pillow Treat Box

It's an ABC (Anything But a Card) Day over at Catch the Bug, and it's my turn to create something! :0) I always have a difficult time coming up with projects for ABC Day. I don't have any little ones at my house (my son is 21, and just does not appreciate good paper crafty stuff, ya' know?!). I never know what on earth to do with my goodies once I'm done with them. Hubby keeps every card I give him, and if I start giving him 3D paper objects.....well......I just have no idea where the man will pile them up! lol! Anyhow, it's always a tough day for me to create for my DT assignments, but I am giving it a go! 

For this assignment, I wanted to do something quick, simple, and fun! I used the Bugaboo Stamps Circle Sentiments - Pumpkin Season image, and took this opportunity to play with one of the Fill Patterns on my Silhouette Studio program to add him to the argyle background that has colors perfect for fall!

Once I printed the pattern and image out, I put it on my Silhouette cutting mat, and let the machine do it's thing. From there, it was just a matter of a couple quick folds, which were perforated in the cutting file. Now this is ready to be filled up with some pumpkin seeds....which I have yet to make! :)

  1. Cheryl, I'm sure this little pillow box will come in handy. I think it's really cute. Personally I find non card projects quite tricky too, but these days I'm busy making gift bags for Christmas and I should get starting on those Christmas gift bags real soon as well. I'm struggling with those, such a small space to work on...

  2. Your little pillow box turned out great! A fun little surprise to brighten someone's day!

  3. Great pill box and fun image for the front. Great way to do Halloween for family.

  4. lovely pillow box, cute nice colours, great for little treats, thanks for sharing at Glitter n Sparkle, good luck Chris DT x

  5. Hey-I was playing with that very same pattern last weekend. Showing my friend how to add them...she is new to the machine...she was amazed!!! Great projects Cheryl!
