Elzybells Birthday Competition

Saturday, 13 June 2009
During the month of June Elzybells are celebrating their 1st birthday! Check out their blog for some amazing offers that Elizabeth has as well as challenges to take part in.

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.

Stamps: Party Teddies - Elzybells; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
CS: Papermania, Bazzill Basics; Tools: Swiss Dots CB Folder, Oval Nestabilites,
Pillow Box Template - WS Designs

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.

: Footie Ted & Football- Elzybells; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics & Versacolour
CS: Bazzill Basics; Tools:Happy Birthday CB Folder, Rectangle Nestabilites,

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.
