Sent with all my Love

You will often find me in the clearance racks of craft stores buying items from past seasons. This pillow box is one of them.  I purchased the 12 pack Wilton Pillow Box Kit after Valentines Day.  To alter it was so super easy and made a generic box unique and a special treat to give to someone you care about.

Mint Motif's Cake Shoppe, Too was my choice of stamps for this project. The darling little polka dots and diamond pattern were perfect for my border strips.  All I did was stamp the polka dots with pink ink on white cardstock.   I cut it into a thin strip and adhered it to the center of the pillow box.  Next I stamped the diamond shape on pink cardstock and colored alternating blocks with my white souffle gel pen.  After mounting the strip onto black cardstock I adhered it to the polka dot panel.  For the tag I used another one of Mint Motif's stamps called Very Square Sentiments .  Finish by tying a bow with twisted burlap and embellish with snowflakes from My Mind's Eye: Colorful Christmas - all available from i{heart}

This Saturday is the next Mint Motif sneak peak of their latest release.  It is sooo super cute - I can't wait to share :)

Have a great Wednesday
