    i am happy to see this MIM. my pillow box die has already gotten a lot of use. i made Christmas favors for my mom’s club, used them for monetary gifts, put one in my neighbor’s mailbox. a bath & body works hand sanitizer fits perfectly inside. ashley’s are beautiful, can’t wait to see what others do. thanks!

    Love these Ashley! I think my favorite one is the gold embossed pillow box. Folding the die cut before you stamped with the shorter background stamps is genius! I probably would’ve attempted to line it up each time, making a huge mess of it. Thanks for the tip! 🙂
