[Supplies: Love Is In The Air - Kristin Cronin-Barrow, DIY Printable Templates: Pillow Boxes - Heather Roselli (all SSD)]
The first thing I started playing with was Pillow Box template. These are really easy to make up using the templates and it's just the design of whatever you want to put on them that really takes some time. But that's okay as that is the fun bit :)
This is the back side of the bird box.
I used a super cute kit by Kristin Cronin-Barrow (also Sweet Shoppe Designs) to create my box pattern. A kit that I'm sure I will return to many more times :)
