Now that all the business is out of the way...........Let's get to the project I have prepared for this blog hop for Day 6!

Here is my project.

I made a few pillow boxes so that I can insert gift cards in.

I cut out the pillow boxes using a svg file from Lettering Delights ~ Pillow Boxes Set.  The cardstock is from Reflections ~Sugar plums.  (I loved the metallic on this cardstock, but it was a bit difficult to photograph...because it reflected my flash.)

The 'Joy' stamp is from The Stamps of Life ~Penguins4Christmas stamp set and the 'Ornament' stamp was from their Holly4Christmas stamp set.   I used Stampin' Up! inks in real red and old olive.  The ribbon was some extra that I had on hand and I tied the ornament to the ribbon using The Twinery twine in maraschino.

Hope you like my pillow boxes.

Be sure to enter the giveaways and start at the beginning of the blog hop using the link above.

Happy Crafting!!
