Tucked In

As promised, here is a peek at the 2nd My Timeless Template that will be released from Papertrey Ink on the 15th. It is called "Tucked In"; isn't that a cute name? I chose to create the smaller of the two sizes...isn't that great that you get two for one? I think I forgot to mention on yesterday's post that you get two sizes with that one as well.
I thought it would be the perfect size to hold a small piece of jewelry and since another friend of mine just had a baby girl, I decided to create a little something for her. I didn't just want to "throw" the bracelet in there or even wrap it in tissue, so I decided to make a tiny, tufted pillow to tie the bracelet to; kindof like what you might see a ringbearer holding.

Once I had assembled the box and decorated it, I got to work on the pillow. I just cut a tiny piece of fabric; actually a remnant of some that I had used to make some baby bibs, so she will probably get one of those as well. I sewed it just as you would a pillow, stuffed it with polyfiberfill and then stitched up the open end. I threaded the ribbon through two of the 4 holes on the button, and then stitched the other two holes through the pillow to create the "tuft". I then threaded the ribbon through the bracelet and secured it with a bow. I crumpled a tiny piece of typing paper and added it to the bottom of the box as well as the extra links for the bracelet and then placed the pillow on top for height.
I let the Pattern Paper do all the work and only added a few details and minimal stamping. Since the box is so tiny, I didn't want to overwhelm the design. I used the circle image from Simply Stationery and a tiny sentiment from Mixed Messages. I punched it out using a 1 1/4 inch circle punch and then matted it with a 1 3/8 inch circle punch. I finished it off with some ribbon and a button.



I had so much fun with this one and I can't wait to present my friend with her gift! Thanks for fluttering by!
