This week Elizabeth would like anything but a card with a birthday theme. I have made two items for this challenge, a pillow box for a girl and a gift card holder for a boy.
On my trip to the NEC, I purchased a pillow treat box template from WS Desgins and this is the first time that I've used it! It wasn't too difficult to put together, the only fiddly bit was trying to score on the curves. I created a purple band to go round the box that I could affix the image. The card has also been put through my good ole cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder.

I saw the tutorial for the gift card holder on the fabulous No Time To Stamp? blog. Sharon Johnson has some amazing creations, you really must go and check her out. I have to apologies for the peg in the photo. I was trying to take it lying down, but the flap kept raising as I haven't got round to adding anything to close it.

Just to show you the inside and that any gift card will fit in perfectly, with room to spare!
I'm really pleased with how both of these turned out and will definitely be making more in the future. I hope you like them too.
Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
