I used the Bee My Valentine Bundle to stamp and punch a Bee and Hearts, added Designer Series Paper and Ribbons, plus the accents from the Adhesive-Backed Hearts & Flowers pack.  You'll want to add these Square Pillow Boxes to your next order.    Item #162559| $8.00 USD, for 10 white stampable boxes.    To earn  items during Sale-A-Bration 2024, from now until February 29, for each $50 or $100 you spend, you can select Free items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

I used the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set to Stamp the Bee for the treat box below.  I used the Bee Builder Punch to punch out the bee elements, the sentiment bubble, and the two hearts used on this square pillow box.  The bee body is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Basic White Cardstock.  The sentiment bubble is also Basic White Cardstock with the sentiment from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  The two hearts are punched from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock using the Bee Builder Punch.  I used one of the prints from the Bee Mine 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper and ribbon from the Sweet Sorbet 1/4" Bordered Ribbon to wrap around my Pillow box.  The Adhesive-backed Hearts & Flowers includes accents in Petal Pink, white, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party, adding just the right final touch to this Valentine Pillow Box.  All of these items are from the Bee Mine Suite.

    Next, I decided to completely cover one of the Square Pillow Boxes with a print from the Bee Mine 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.  Ui can see the results below.  I simply laid the flat pillow box over the designer series paper I wanted to use, traced the outline onto the designer series paper and fussy cut it.  One tip:  I shaped the designer series paper along the fold lines/creases of the pillow box before I glued it to make it easier to adhere the paper to the box.  Then I used Tombow Multipurpose glue to glue it to the box.  I wrapped the Pool Party 3/8" Crinkle Ribbon around the box.  Then, I selected a bee from one of the Bee Mine Designer Series Papers and fussy cut it to add to my design.  I used retired Heart punches to punch out the Basic White Heart and the Sweet Sorbet scalloped heart that matted it.  The sentiment if from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set and it is stamped in Tuxedo Baack Memento Ink.  The three small Pool Party hearts are from the Adoring Hearts Dies, and the Pool party flower is from the Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers accent pack.
