These were done for my youngest grandson to give to his pre-k classmates and teachers. The gable box is done with TBBM2 and the sentiment is a dollar stamp I got a few years ago. The pillow boxes..well, I cheated on those. I have a pillowbox cut file and a pillowbox on at least one other cartridge but when I went to WM the other day, they had this purple pillowbox kit on markdown for $5.00 for 50 of them. And they were made out of a thick vellum so I knew they would be perfect for this project. The embellie in the middle of the pillow box was done using Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge at 2" and then I ran them through the Xyron. So far they are holding well. I handwrote the "from Brayden". I probably should have let Brayden write his name on the teacher's gable boxes and may redo the stamp on those so that he can. I'm not sure he can write small enough but I probably should try it

These milk cartons were also done with TBBM2 and the felt flowers were from the bridal aisle at Michael's. They already had a foam pop dot on them so I just stuck those on some little, tiny clothes pins that I found at a local party store. I think they need something a bellyband or I may add those later today if I can decide what to do!


  1. Soooooooooo jealous. My boxes NEVER come out right. I am not even bothering with TBBM2... I can't get a single box on the Imagine or the Expression to ever turn out.

  2. Great little boxes! Congrats on the bargain vellum boxes!
