Blogger's Challenge 146: Alter It


This week I really took the easy way out, I admit it.  I traveled for work and then had to get some dental work done the day I came back, worked on a few other projects and the Blogger's Challenge got "swept under the rug". 

I made this little pillow box a few weeks ago to coordinate with the new Rock-A-Bye set that was released by Clear & Simple Stamps.   I grabbed up a few of these at CHA as I loved them and they sold out really quick. 

This would make a cute baby shower favor and was quick & easy to put together.  I grabbed a scrap paper of cardstock and wrapped it around the pillow box.  I wrapped the new Green with Envy ribbon around it and tied a cute little bow, attaching the tag that I stamped with the star background and then the Momma's precious baby girl sentiment.

Can't wait to see what the other girls create this week and you can see what they create here as well.

I think clear pillow boxes rock -- I should have tried this before. Great idea and so much easier to decorate with a pretty ribbon!

Cute project and I like that it's not super complicated (my kind of altered project). Very nice color choices.
