Ghostly Greetings Pillow Boxes

Aren’t these cute?  For my stamp camps, I always like to have a little gift item sitting on top of their projects, waiting for them when they get here.  These are 1/2 of the ones I made…I did two classes.  The gifts look so colorfull when they walk in…ooohhhing and aaahhing.  Being able to make 3D items was one of the reasons I started stamping.  I so wished I’d have known about Stampin’ Up! when my kids were little.  Making favors for their birthday parties and classes would have been so much fun!

I used the Big Shot Pillow Die from Stampin’ Up! along with the Halloween paper, Ghostly Greetings.  Love the bags and pumpkins on these two designs.  And I love how the pattern is random, so you don’t need to worry about what side is up or down.  I used up some ribbons I had laying around to hold the pillow box closed.  I used the tag stamp from Eat, Drink & Be Scary with the ribbon!  Fun and easy to stamp and punch it out!  Inside I put two peppermint patties.

I’m so surprised (and HAPPY!) that the Big Shot has been such a success for Stampin’ Up!   The exclusive dies are so popular (some of them are on backorder, but they are well worth the wait!)  So, if you’ve been thinking about getting the Big Shot and/or dies, EMAIL me.  I’m still offering 5 projects ideas and a FREE $4.95 die with your Big Shot Starter Kit purchase!  It would make a GREAT Christmas present for yourself!
