The leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies are at the heart of this mini vignette tucked inside a Kraft Pillow Box. Think of all the scenes you could create with alternate dies and punches. My project was inspired by a “dream catcher” version I saw on the Alaska trip. Wouldn’t these be pretty as part of an autumn table setting?

MY STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Carefully detach the side “seam” of the pillow box (love the polka dots) so that you can open it up and cut the oval. Watch my WOW! video here for a detailed demonstration.
Crop the center of one side of the pillow box using the second largest oval die from Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform (to help keep the die in place). TIP: I cropped the oval from the inside (kraft) of the pillow box vs. the outer (polka dot) side to avoid any embossed edges of the die showing up on the outside.
Using the Big Shot, crop an Early Espresso oval with the largest oval die and a vellum oval with the third largest oval die. Adhere the vellum oval to to the Early Espresso oval using glue dots in an area that the glue dots will be covered by the leaves.
Emboss and crop the leaves using the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies in Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana card stock. Layer over the vellum oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using a Glue Dot, tuck the silver metal stem from Leaves Trinkets below the small leaf and add two silver Metallic Pearls (self-adhesive) as shown.
Adhere the Early Espresso oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals to the inside of the pillow box. Use Tear & Tape adhesive to re-adhere pillow box seam and to close ends of the pillow box.
Using the Stamparatus (learn about the Stamparatus here), stamp the “wonderful” sentiment from Rooted in Nature in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White card stock. Trim to a 2 1/2 x 1 1/4 tag.
Add a small hole to the top left corner of the tag. I used a retired 1/16 Handheld Circle Punch but the Stampin’ Up! 1/8 Handheld Circle Punch (not retired) will work just as well. TIP: Adhere the tag to the pillow box with one Stampin’ Dimensional to keep it in place. Wrap the box twice with Linen Thread and tie in a bow using the hole created on the tag.
