Pillow Box Party Favors by Barbara Rankin

Hello everyone!  Barbara here today with another fun project using my amazing CraftwellUSA eBrush!   We are using Sabor Papel papers and embellishments, along with our eBrush, this month.  What a great combination!  So, let's play!

These papers make me feel like a party!  So, I made a couple of pillow box style favor boxes that would make be a real treat for any party!  If you look at them, though, you can also turn these into the front of a card, too! 

I cut out the pillow box shape from white card stock, as shown, using my Silhouette electronic cutting machine, but there are templates all over the internet.  Just google "pillow box template" to find them.

Now, the really interesting, and fun, thing about the eBrush is that you can make your own background papers to match anything in your craft stash.  In this instance, I want to show you how easy it is.  I chose this chevron stencil to start, and I used the B24 Sky marker to add a light coat of color.

Next, I eBrushed the Y35 Maize lightly over the background.  I was not going for full coverage.

Next,  random splotches of YR68 Orange were added.

Add more random splotches of V09 Violet.

Move the stencil to cover the color sprayed areas, revealing the white spaces.  eBrush the G05 Emerald Green onto those areas, giving full coverage.

Remove the stencil and here is what the background looks like now.

Now, cover the paper with the large circles stencil and eBrush with the B95 Light Grayish Cobalt.

The layering of the colors gives such a nice depth to the background. 

Open the pillow box, align the stencil and continue eBrushing the opposite side.

Here is the finished background for your pillow box.

Cut out some flowers from Amor Ramitos paper and the guitar with flowers from Olé Burrito paper. 

I adhered the guitar with flowers over an orange doily.  The fussy cut flowers were added with pop dots for dimension.  I also fussy cut the Mi Fiesta banner and adhered it to the front.  The music note is a die cut embellishment that I added with a pop dot, too.

The second pillow box was decorated exactly the same as the first.  A purple and pink banner were fussy cut from the Papel Picado paper, and the heart with flowers was fussy cut from the Amor Enamorado paper.  

I used the Teresa Collins TODAY Project Dies to die cut the "remember in rectangle" from the reverse side of the Olé Burrito paper.

Each piece was adhered to the front of the pillow box, over a blue doily, as shown.  The candle is a die cut embellishment. 

Supplies used:

Copic Markers: B24 Sky, B95 Light Grayish Cobalt, G05 Emerald Green, Y35 Maize, YR68 Orange, V09 Violet
White card stock
