The new pillowbox

I've been anxious to see the new pillowbox die that Sizzix just released. It's a different twist on the pillowbox die. At first I was a little confused while assembling the box because of the pleats on the side of the box. I didn't know what piece went where. But the instructions is so easy to follow that it turned out to be quite easy. I made a chipboard ornament out of the flower tag die and attached it to the box.The weight of the ornament made the box a little top heavy since I didn't fill the box with anything so I had to tape the box down to take the photo. You can sort of see the pleat on the side of the box. Here is a shot of the back of the box. See on the top where the box closes? That's where it looks exactly like the pillowbox. The bottom of the box is flat so that is what makes this box look different.
Tomorrow I will be at the store doing a Sizzix make & take from 10-12 pm. I listed the supplies to bring on the site. Hope you can join us!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Friday!!! I'm off in a bit to have lunch with my gf Teri.
