Blue Organizer

I love the color of the blue in Pion Design’s collection The Songbird’s Secret.  It is a turquoise blue and is so soft and beautiful.  This project has slits in the sides of the box for the borders of the organizer cards to pass through as a decorative element.  There are six organizer cards inside to separate cards, tags, notes, or coupons.  There’s a hidden small magnet to keep the lid closed.  This project can also be found on Pion Design’s March 22 blog post here.  The die used for this project is Heartfelt Creations Cut & Emboss Die, Regal Borders & Pockets and it is one of my favorite dies!  I love the elegance of that die!
Enjoy the day!

Baby Carriages

I made these baby carriages with a Pazzles cutting file that can be found here.  The top paper blanket can be lifted off and the carriage can hold a small gift or some candy. I used thin chipboard for the wheels and base of the carriage to give it support.  If you plan on putting something inside the carriage, regular paper will not be strong enough to support the project.  I enlarged the cutting file quite a bit to make the carriages larger than the original size of the cutting file.  They were made using Pion Design’s Theodore and Bella collection and can also be found on their March 11 blog post here.  I think they would make great party favors stuffed with candy for a baby shower, or they could be affixed to the top of a gift box or diaper cake.
Enjoy the day!

Drum Boxes

Hi!  This is my first project using the new Theodore and Bella collection by Pion Design.  This project can also be found on Pion Design’s March 9 post here  The collection has cute stuffed animal images and is great for projects and cards for children.

  These are papier–mâché round boxes with lids I found at Michael’s.  I covered them inside and out with the papers and spaced Tim Holtz Idea-ology ring fasteners around the box to thread the ribbon through.  They make such a special gift box for children.
Wishing everyone a very special day!
