I was asked by the Bride-to-be Alice, a while ago to whip up some pillow boxes for her wedding......and whip them up I did! I'm pretty sure I even did them in my sleep at night! It was my first real time of making something for an occasion such as a wedding - at least for someone else anyway! It was a success and they suited the wedding perfectly!Inside these little beauties were yummo pink/red Jelly Belly's...mmm!!
And here is the wedding card that I made Shannon & Alice....you may have seen this card in one of the latest Stampin' Up Impressions magazine. It was too beautiful not to CASE!Apoligies for the dark photos - again.

Time to get inspired....by this photo!Now I thought this was the impossible - "How can I get inspired by THAT photo?!" I asked myself! So I focused on the girls frill-thing that's around their necks and made a Scallop Punch flower by punching out about 4 scallops and rolled them tight into a ball to soften the fibres. I then split each one - so I then had 8. I then punched a hole through the middle of them all, attached a small brad and then one by one, scrumpled each layer so it kind of resembled a flower! lol
I am currently making 100+ pillow boxes for an upcoming wedding, so I think I had pillow boxes stuck in my brain this week! Anyway, hope it inspires you, too, to make some pillow boxes. This one is going to my daughter because she appreciated the "brightness" of it! lol Though I can't guarantee there will be any Jelly Beans left in it!
