CottageCutz Wedding Day Pillow Box

 Happy Crafting everyone.  Today is a project to share with a wedding theme.  I just adore making favors and little boxes for gift giving.  There's going to be a wedding in my family the beginning of next year, so I am in the throws of lots of crafting.  The latest and popular trend is "Rustic" Weddings with burlap and canning jars as part of the decorations.  It can be very elegant.
 As you can see here the white contrast very beautifully with the burlap fabric.  The pillow bow was created with the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Board.  It's 6 x 6-quick and easy to make especially if you need to make lots of them!
 The butterfly has been glittered and so has the flower-love me some sparkle on this.  Also there is some silver bling strands on either side of the burlap.  It helps it to stay put and not fray.  Burlap frays pretty easy so you have to think of creative ways to create with it to keep it in tact on your projects.  Thank you so much for visiting and taking a look.  It's been a pleasure to share an idea for wedding favors with you.  Hope it gives you inspiration to create something wonderful for you and your family.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies I used:

How fun your pillow box is, and how wonderful about the upcoming wedding, Carol (is it your son?) - Love all the special details in this burlap-yet-elegant rendition! I can only imagine how busy you are, knowing that Carol can only do beautiful and detailed. LOL My finger tips are slowly becoming less painful, so I am trying to type a little bit more each day without triggering the symptoms again LOL huggers, de
