Welcome to Day #4 of the
XYRON & CLEARSNAP BLOG HOP
Today I'm sharing some really fun stenciled pillow boxes that can hold
candies, colored paper clips or leave as-is and use as a favor for your fall table scape!
I've used a few very basic supplies:
Other items- pumpkin stem and leaf dies, glitter enamel dot, cardstock, sponge
First, I poured out a small amount of the refill ink (this is a multi-surface ink great for plastic, metal, etc.)
out onto a piece of plastic sheeting. I dipped a cosmetic sponge into the ink and then dabbed out the excess.
The stencil was placed over the entire front of the pillow box and then sponged on.
Allow to air dry (drying time depends on how thick the ink is) or use a heat tool to set.
I happened to have a set of accent dies for decorating pumpkins, but you could use
svg cutting files, templates or other dies to fashion your own.
Note: I wanted the stem to cover both sides of the pillow box, so I die-cut the shape
so that it was doubled. To do so, I folded a small section of brown cardstock in half and
placed the top part of the stem (die) ABOVE the fold so that it wouldn't cut all the way through.
Permanent adhesive was applied to both sides of the stem (notice the mirrored die-cut).
A beautiful, solid coating of permanent adhesive!
Here you can see that the bottom portion of the stem is connected to the front/back of
the pillow box, while the rest is adhered together.
Fill a basket with the decorated pillow-pumpkin boxes and serve to friends!
Make tall ones and short ones!
And don't forget a treat!
It's almost FALL...doesn't that make you HAPPY :)
