Embellished Paper Pillows

Having a few friends over for a small gathering?  Want to little have gifts, favors or name place cards?  This little Paper Pillow Kit is perfect.  The kit is very reasonable and includes five pillows. 
They are a little rustic with wood grain pattern paper.  I have added a few floral embellishments, now they would be perfect for a spring tea!

The tags could be used for names or sweet sentiments, in my samples I have stamped sentiments.

Paper Pillow Kit
Corrugated Cardboard
Double side tape
Floral Pillow #1 Serenade Tuscan Grey
Floral Pillow #2 Watercolor Pinks
Butterfly Pillow #3 Paris Printed Blue

Each Paper Pillow Kit includes five pillows, a wrap, tag and enough jute for each pillow. Contents are pictured below.

When the pillows are folded they measure 3 1/2 long x 2 3/4 wide and 1 inch deep.  The ends are scored to make folding easy.

Pillow #1 is has been made with one of the wraps (pattern paper with wood grain) from the kit, use Double side tape to adhere the wrapTie jute around the pillow and attach the banner.   

On Pillow #1 I added a  Serenade Tuscan Grey flower, attach with Glue.


On pillow #2 I used a I inch wide piece of  Corrugated Cardboard  for the wrap,   Double side tape was used to adhere the wrapTie jute around the pillow and attach the banner.

On Pillow #2  I embellished it with  a  Watercolor Pinks flower, attach with Glue.

On pillow #3 I used a I inch wide piece cut from one of my Gel Press prints from last month... You can see how I made the print HERE Double side tape was used to adhere the wrapTie jute around the pillow and attach the banner.   

Pillow #3 is embellished it with  a butterfly from the  Paris Printed Blue  flowers, attach with Glue.

I  hope you are inspired to create your own pillow gift boxes!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
