Hi everyone... Well, firstly I need to apologise for not coming back last week and posting my blog giveaway. I have been having internet issues, and still am. I apparently need a new modem, so am waiting for it to arrive in the mail, hopefully soon.
I promise, I will be back later in the week with my blog giveaway, but for now, I have a little tutorial I did for Graphic 45... I know its not as interesting as a giveaway, but, hopefully it will do for a little while :)

These little pillow boxes are really fast, and fun to make. You can purchase the little acetate pillow boxes, pre made from a department store, as I have, or, there are cutting dies available so you are able to make your own if you wish.
12 days of Christmas Collection, 12 x 12 ‘Calling Birds’ paper, 8 x 8 pad, Chipboard die cuts 1, Banners
Step 2: Glue the chipboard die cut to the centre of the doily, add a bow to the bottom.
Step 3: Fussy cut the rose image from the Calling birds paper.
Step 4: Fussy cut the bird image also TIP: I have cut a second image of both the roses, and the bird, and adhered them together, using foam tape, to give a 3D appearance, but this isn’t essential.
Step 5: Arrange fussy cut elements as show below.
Step 6: I have used some individually wrapped Hersey chocolates, but you can use any chocolates, or candy you wish, as long as it is wrapped.
Step 9: trim strips from the Joyeus Noel paper, and adhere around the centre of each chocolate. Apply Banner circle’s once the dimensional magic is dry, and your pillow boxes are all ready to give to the special people in your life this Christmas.
