July SOTM: Friendship Clear Pillow Box

Helpful Hints

To create the techniques featured in this artwork, follow the helpful hints outlined below.

  • Create the yo-yo as follows: cut a 1 3/4" × 12" piece of cardstock; score and fold it every 1/4"; wrap it in a circle and attach two ends together; secure to a 2" piece of paper for support.
  • To create the thought bubble, color the Irresistibles quote with ink then stamp the sentiment.
  • Add visual interest by wrapping a 3 1/4" × 9 1/2" piece of stamped cardstock around pillow box and attach so there is a flap on one side; attach a 3 1/4" × 1/2" piece of contrasting paper on edge and use corner rounder with guard removed to create scallop border.
  • Embellish with paper accents and accessories, adding dimension with 3-D foam tape as desired.
