Hi Everyone - I know I've said it before but I'll have to say it again!  I'm addicted to Pinterest.  But really, that's a good thing!  Part of the project I made today came from something that I saw on Pinterest.  It was instructions to create a flower pillow where you cut circles out of felt and fold them in half. This link will take you to a picture of the pillow:  http://pinterest.com/pin/30540103692586839/

I liked the looks of it so I thought I could do the same thing with paper!  Voila!

Using George, I cut a 3 1/2" circle out of white cardstock.  I then used a piece of two sided cardstock to cut out a page of 1 1/4" circles.  I then folded the circles in half alternating between the two sides.  Starting on the outside of the circle, I glued the folded circles until the whole 3 1/2" circle was covered. 

This is the finished circle.  When I started covering the circle, I didn't know how I was going to use it.  Then I thought of my new favorite cartridge, Artiste!!!

I created the box below cut at 3 1/4".  Simply pushed the buttons and glued the top together.  I created the bottom and found that the way the box is cut - the sides are not able to be glued together.  With my left over circles, I attached one at each angle - you can kinda see that in this photo if you look closely. 

Then I added ribbon around the top, tied a bow, and popped the circle on top.  

This is the finished project.  Mom has a new neighbor - she said she wanted the box to put cookies in as a "welcome to the neighborhood" gift. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  We appreciate your visits and your comments.  If you would like to order the Artiste Gift set, follow this link to order.  The kit includes the Artiste cartridge, three sets of stamps, and 3 pages of chipboard cut outs for $99 - it is Sooooooooo worth the money!!
