Day 253: Keeping it Real, Keeping it Simple

My thumb is still bothering me so I tried to keep it pretty simple this morning and to take it easy on my bum thumb.

Bad Day in Paradise Pillow Box

I found these clear pillow boxes at the expo this past weekend and thought that it might be fun to play around with them. I also found what they call “wobble disks” there. They allow you to add an embellishment to your project and add a little dimension and motion. I decided to use both of those products along with a new stamp that I got. In the photo below, you can see how the sentiment is elevated off of the actual pillow box.

For the decoration on the inside of the pillow box, I simply used blue and tan papers to create a beachy type feel. For the sentiment, I cut a circle out of card stock and another one out of the blue paper. I put them together and and stamped the sentiment in denim blue. The sentiment says, “A bad day in Paradise is always better than a good day at work,” and we all know that is 100% true.

Not the most exciting project, but still fun.
