Stampin' Up Birthday Bouquet Pillow Boxes

Wow...What a fabulous weekend!!!  The weather was unbelievable.  Pure Sun; not a cloud in the sky.   It almost hit 80 degrees yesterday and it may do so again today!

My good friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, found this Pillow Box Purse idea and we made purses and other 'future' goodies a couple weekends ago.

Here's the link to the Pillow Box Purse video by one of our Stampin' Up Artisan Team Members:

 Aren't these just Stinkin' cute.

I used Stampin' Up's Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper for some of the purses.

The coordinating SU Cardstocks are Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

I used both current and retired SU buttons which I adhered to the purses with SU Glue Dots.

I die cut the tags from the SU Pillow Box Die's with coordinating SU Cardstock.

My sentiments are from SU Stamp Sets Endless Birthday Wishes and Circle of Spring.

I tied bows using different coordinating SU Bakers Twine.

I used a Signo White Gel Pen to create the Faux Stitching pattern on some of the tags.

I used mostly current ribbons for my purse handles and a couple retired ribbons.

I added some Basic Jewel Rhinestones, Iced Rhinestones and Basic Jewel Pearls to some of the buttons.

The For You sentiment is from SU's You're So Lovely Stamp Set.

The flap on the front of the purse is die cut using the largest SU Deco Label Die.

The sentiments are stamped in Memento Black Ink.

The label behind the sentiment is punched using SU's Modern Label Punch (Retired).

And, the last Purse...LOVE that Iced Rhinestone on the Blushing Bride Button.  So Pretty!

That's all I have for today!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!


I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
