Easter mini pillow boxes

I made these mini pillow boxes from the SU big shot pillowbox die, by running them through twice and then using the 3/4 inch punch for the hole to place the mini eggs in. I made them for my work colleagues and they thought they were cute. Really easy to make especially when four sheets of paper can go through the die at any one time. The paper was from my stash at home.

Clam shell suitcase of tools

I wanted to do a mans clamshell box to see what I came up with. I used the clam shell box design and have used Always Artichoke and More Mustard papers with the totally tools stamp set from StampinUp. I spritzed it with silver spritz to make it look old. Added faux stitching to the corners and handles and brads in Always artichoke. The stamps are stamped on very vanilla cardstock and hand cut and coloured with blender pens and ink pads adding basic grey and not quite navy to the colours above.

A Miniture Tool Chest for my DH

I decided to see if spritzing would make this little tool chest look 'old' and here are the pics with it spritzed with SU silver spritz Inspired by the draws I set forth and made my DH a tool chest complete with tiny tools. The top lifts up and the 2 draws open and the bottom has a cupboard. The bottom has little feet to keep it up off the ground and all the tools were cut from the Cricut Handiman Lite cartridge at 1.5 inches on the Cricut Imagine. glitter -
