Pillow Box

I needed a small little box to put some little "bits and pieces" in for a present for someone (can't say who yet in case they're reading this :-) ) for Christmas. The Sizzix pillow box die is perfect for this (and easy). I used patterned paper, lace and Our Daily Bread Designs stamps (and dies) to decorate the box.

I am entering this project in the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge - ODBDSLC182 Alternate Fold or 3D.
(I was rather sad to miss out on the last challenge (double embossing) as the challenge sounded really interesting and it is a technique I haven't had a chance to try yet...however, I was quite sick that week and even though I attempted (several times) to "play" with my craft products I didn't have the energy. Will have to give this technique a try soon though. ODBD posted a link to a very nice tutorial on the double embossing technique. You can view the tutorial here.)

Another picture:

If you have a look at the first picture again you can see a cute little bee near one of the clover flowers. The stamp actually comes with two bees and when you use the matching die it cuts out the bees for you too. So cute but my second bee seemed to have "flown" away somewhere and I couldn't find him so there is only one bee on my project today.
