The Holidays are coming… the holidays are coming! Try not to panic. The Sizzix Blog will be filled with amazing projects to inspire all your holiday crafts from Halloween to Thanksgiving and Christmas over the coming months. Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I have a great Lindsey Serata Pillow Box w/ Ornament to inspire. Who’s excited!!!
I must confess something to you. I was clearing my photo’s and yep, I deleted the How To photo’s. My bad. Not to worry, this is one of those quick projects and I did a few more cuts to show you. I love cutting Kraft paper for Pillow Box . The ornament is cut with Core Paper and mirror sheets. It’s the perfect gift to give money, gift cards or something tiny… like diamonds. Hey, just sayin’!
I do love to add sentiments so the new Vintage Tidings Thinlit is just right.
Add a little holiday greens with the Mini Holiday Greens. They cut like a hot knife through butter. Do you have the Magnetic Platform yet? It’s perfect from keeping these mini thinlits from shifting when cutting with small scraps.
Sanding and some ground espresso distress ink really helps with that vintage feel.
The mirrored sheet looks amazing layered under the detail of the ornament.
Adding details like inked up metal snowflake charms and a big fluffy bow add to that festive look.
In our house we tuck small gifts like these (yep I make these every year) into the tree along with Christmas cards. My kids love digging through the homemade ornaments and branches searching for them.
I hope this gets you thinking about the holidays. If you’re looking to create some quick easy gifts look no further. There are so many ways you can create with just a couple of your dies. The Lindsey Serata Pillow Box w/ Ornament is a perfect place to start.
Do you hear the jingle bells?
