Pillow Box Birthday Card

Good Sunday morning everyone! I'm Angela and very pleased to be RRR Guest Designer for June.
I wanted to share my Pillow Box Birthday card using
 Really Reasonable Ribbon's Rose Silk ribbon with you.
 It's so easy to work with and is just so soft and beautiful! I love it.
My daughter is turning 21 and I've been making a series of cards for her. 
She saw this one and liked it so this is one of three that she will receive from 
her father, her dog and me.


 I used Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles -largest and second largest dies
Italian floral paper (thin is better),
one layer of washi paper quilting foam and
one piece of cardboard (or chipboard).

Trace the smaller rectangle on the back side of the floral paper,
cut corners and  notches
 glue foam to card board and
add glue on bottom of cardboard to adhere floral paper.

Press the tabs into the glue around the bottom of cardboard  

 Here is your pillow
cut a 6" piece of
RRR 1-1/4" Rose Silk Ribbon for belly band
and 4" piece for fan folded flower
Secure the fan folded piece until able to tie with thin cord/string

 Tie the floret to the band and adjust to hide the cord.
