As promised here are the instructions for the swaps I made...
(all Stampin' Up! of course)
A Big Shot Die Cutter
Pillow Box Bigz Die
Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler paper
Staz-on white ink
Very Vanilla 1/8' taffeta ribbon
Tags Til Christmas stamp set
Scallop Square punch
Thin Window Sheets
I had started off wanting to make totally clear pillow boxes, but as I only had a few sheets of Stampin' Up! Thin Window Sheets I needed to improvise. I ended up creating a half paper- half window sheet pillow box.
It is a bit hard to see in the photos but basically I cut the paper to the exact size but cut the window sheet a little larger on both sides to enable me to glue the two pieces together.
Important step: I filled the boxes with Jelly Beans.
I then stamped the image on more window sheet with the staz on ink and then punched out the image and some cherry cobbler paper. I then used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes either side and threaded some ribbon through. I tied the ribbon at the back for ease of opening.
Thanks for looking!
