pillow box easter egg stand tutorial

Isn't this just the sweetest way to present a YUMMY Easter egg??
Again it's made with the Stampin' Up! Pillow Box Big Shot die. I have taken photos of how to do it - but again I have used my faux die to make it easier to see the blades on the die.

Start off with a piece card - you don't need to waste card so cut it wide enough to just cover the blades on the left and only up to the lines on the right.

It should come out like this.

Now this is where you need to be careful. You can move the piece of card along the die to get a small box or one a bit longer BUT you must ensure that you keep the card straight on the die as you will be going over the die so ensure your lines all match up, not like how it is placed on the above picture! lol

Now to get the hole in the middle of the box rule lines from corner to corner as per pic.

Now using the 1" circle punch line up the cross inside the punch and punch out.

It should end up like this.

Now put it all together and it will look like this. you could use it for place names for a special Easter meal or just a cute way to present a yummy egg. And it goes SOOOOO well with the awesome new stamp set "EAT CHOCOLATE" which I used on the top picture! This set is from the new Autumn/Winter mini catalogue.
Happy crafting!!!
