And that, my friends, is pretty much why I LOVE this Bird Post stamp from Stampendous! It comes in cling or wood mounted, too, which is nice!
To create my pillow box, I first cut the box from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from white cardstock. Keeping it flat, I stamped the image in black directly on the box. Then I stamped the image a second time, this time with red ink, on another piece of white cardstock and I cut out the bird to mount over the one in black.
I inked around the edges with distress ink, leaving the card white. I added a bit of a watercolor touch with my waterpen and a red ink pad and then I added some aged gold embossing enamel to the crown and Fun Flock in Cotton Ball, as well.
I assembled the box ('cause I heard they work better that way) and then tied it up with pretty May Arts twine! And NOW...I just need to go buy something small enough to fit in it to give to someone! HA! Actually, these are great for gift cards! They also look really pretty peaking out of a stocking OR...you can fill them with candy. 'Cause candy makes people happy. At least...it makes me happy and that's all that matters, right? HA! TOTALLY kidding. Well, not about the candy making me happy part. Just say'n.
