CSAYL -Never Seen Ink

Its time for CSAYL's 2nd last challenge for the year! This week we have to make a creation using a set that hasn't seen ink before. I found this hard as just about every set has been inked up at least once but I decided to go with Papertrey Ink's Tiny Treats: Christmas as this is relatively new for me.

I was having some friends over for a cardmaking night this weekend, so I thought this set would be perfect for some pillow boxes as teacher gifts. I used the Stampin' Up pillow box die to cut my template and some Deck The Halls - 3 Bugs In A Rug DP. I punched out my image layer using my curly label punch and stamped my image and sentiment, before adding some glitter around the edges. This was matted on a coloured layer which was hand cut using the top layer as a guide.  Here are the 3 pillow boxes below:

There are some fabulous creations over at the CSAYL blog so be sure to have a look and enter the challenge. The top 10 faves will be posted on the blog at the end of the week!
