Simple Pillow Box Thank Yous

These were super quick little Pillow Boxes that I cranked out with my new Big Shot today! I stamped the first one with some Eastern Blooms flowers then used my new Curly Label Punch & coordinating Cute & Curly stamp set to create a quick thank you label. Then I punched a couple slots with my horizontal slot punch & created a simple little flower with my Boho Blossoms punch & 1/4" circle punch. I added some 1/4" pumpkin pie gg ribbon...and whaa-laa...I was done! A little pouch of candy corn is inside (I LOVE that stuff!). These were all more or less scrap projects. I used cardstock & DP that were left over from other projects I've been working on. It was kind of fun how the colors all worked together...the pumpkin ribbon just tied it all together. For these pillow boxes, I added a layer with my new Wide Oval Punch under the Curly Punch, and ran some Sweet Always DP through the Big shot & it worked awesome!! That Big Shot is one sweet machine : ) !!! One thing I did find in making these pouches, is you really need to use Sticky Strip to hold that long edge of the pouch closed when using cardstock. The DP pouch held together fine with my roll-on adhesive, but the cardstock really needs that extra hold that Sticky Strip gives.

By the way, beginning this week, if you're interested in purchasing SU products, or finding out what's new with SU...you can do so through my business website...just click HERE to see all the latest SU news and shop on-line (the shop online feature is at the upper right side of the screen when you get to the site)!! I shop on-line for a variety of products, so I'm thrilled that SU is finally offering this options for customers who prefer to shop that way!!! And of course, if you have ANY questions, you can always email me @youcanstamp@hotmail.com.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great evening :) !! If you're interested in seeing how the Big Shot works...I'd be happy to take a few photos and do a brief tutorial on this project in the near future? SU just added this great machine to their line-up of awesome products, and it was new to me...so I'm guessing it might be new to many of you too? Just let me know if you're interested.
