{cup o' tea} anyone?

Hey there again!  How's your Saturday going?  It's amazing how the weeks just seem to be flying by, and how much I look forward to catching my breath on Saturdays!  I'm so glad I got a chance to create some stuff to share with you guys, too.  Today, I've got a little pillow box share.  I am loving that die and what's funny is I'm trying to think of occasions or reasons to make favors to give out!  Funny, huh?  So this little share is one of those things that you can give to any girl for any occasion.  It' such a sweet little something - you can enclose a tea bag, jewelry, some tags, or some little trinket gift.  Here's a look at the entire pillow box:
So cute and easy to make!  As you can see, I played with all kinds of elements to create this favor.  I love packaging, so I had fun dressing up the pillowbox die.  I embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then embellished with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die and the Pearls.  For the tag, I used the scallop oval punch and layered that on top of the new Extra Large Decorative Label punch that will be in the new Holiday Mini catalog.  Then I tooks some twine and wrapped it around the pillowbox, and secured my tag with a Subtles Designer Button.  Here's the recipe for you:
{Sweet Tea Pillowbox}
All supplies Stampin'Up! except for twine
*Stamps: Tiny Teacup
*Cardstock: So Saffron, Sweet & Sour DSP, Very Vanilla
*Inks: Regal Rose classic ink pad, Basic Gray, So Saffron markers
*Accessories: Pillow Box die, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Scallop Oval punch, Extra Large Designer Label punch, Basic Pearls, Subtles Buttons, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, twine
