Christmas Pillow Box

I've been having fun with my Cricut machine.  My friend suggested I make all the boxes as large as I could, so I could show people what they could do.  I made this fun pillow box and decorated the wrapper with the new Believe paper pack.

I used super sticky Terrifically Tacky Tape to put the box together, and on the wrapper and label.  Nothing else I tried worked very well.  I loved the elf in the Christmas Cheer stamp set.  (He actually looks like someone I know.)

I really like the new heavier B&T (Background & Texture) (patterned) paper that Close To My Heart came out with.  Plus, the new paper packs are lower in price!  $9.95 instead of $12.95.  They still have 6 patterns in each pack, but the papers now have 2 complimentary but different designs on a single sheet Yay!  The heavier paper is great for projects like these (above) where you need some substance on the wrapper.

Believe Paper Pack (X7145B, $9.95)
