Pillow box bonanza

Today it was mighty chilly, and the wind was horrible, but it still didn’t stop people from going out shopping.  I did a little bit of shopping after work and I sure was glad to get home and in my warm comfy spot.

This year I seem to have simplified things quite a bit, and I am quite enjoying creating this way.  New Fancy Pants goodies came in, and in amongst the goodies was a package of die cuts from their Christmas line.

I was able to decorate these pillow boxes with some of the die cuts, and I can tell you that there is TONS of pieces left.  I think we need to do a blog post on all you can do with a package of die cuts.

A few Lindts, a gift certificate, some old fashioned candy … a new pair of socks … whatever you want to put in these cute little pillow boxes would just be perfect.  A quick easy packaging solution.

Seriously, how cute and easy are these?  A total of 3 clear die cuts … two on the left black pillow box and one on the right.  Looks pretty cool, right?

And … I just couldn’t resist adding my minions to this one.  And you know that’s Paul on the left and me on the right … the nice one.  *wink*

Today I was asked to add some recipes … some traditional Christmas recipes.  I dug out one of my biggest treasures, my Mom’s handwritten little notebook with her Christmas favorites.  I share with you now, her Hungarian nut cake.
