Hi everyone! This is my first post as a Hybrid DT. I chose to make a pillow and a matching card.
Heart of Thankfulness by Sugarplum Paperie
Hybrid Helper – Gifting by Jan Hosford
1 x pillow box template printed out with lowered opacity as cutting guide
1 x 4 1/4″x 11″ cardstock for card base
various patterned paper printouts
stamps (I used Hero Arts clear stamps for sentiments)
Distress Inks (I used them to ink paper edges and to stamp my sentiments)
double sided tapes (or your favorite adhesives)
Glue Dots (for adhering buttons and paper flowers)
paper flowers (mine are from Hero Arts)
buttons (from Papertrey Ink)
paper distresser (or you can use a pair of opened scissors, just be careful when you use them!)
Glossy Accents (I used them on the little hearts to make them shine!)
1. Cut out the pillow box shape and score all the fold lines using the template printout as your guide.
2. Ink all the paper edges using Distress Inks and a foam applicator. Distress all the paper edges using the paper distresser except for the pillow box piece.
3. Assemble the pillow box using your favorite adhesives then set aside.
4. Glue the card front patterned paper piece on the folded card base. Stamp the sentiments on the printouts.
5. After tying the twine on the paper pieces, place and adhere them to the card and the pillow box.
6. String twine through the buttons and tie knots in the front then glue them on the paper flowers.
7. Place and glue down the paper flowers then cut out the heart then glue on the card and the pillow box.
8. Apply Glossy Accents to the hearts and let dry.
Here is the finished card.
Here is the finished pillow box.
Please feel free to ask if you have any questions. I know that I am not a good “explainer”… =) I will help you as much as I can if you have any questions.
