Hi and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Pretty Little Studio Blog Hop! Get ready for two days of beautiful vintage inspiration! You probably came here from Agnieska Piskorz's blog but if you happened to stumble across my blog go to the Tombow USA Blog (on Friday) Pretty Little Studio (On Saturday) to start! 

I used products from both companies to make this gift box filled with note cards.

I started by painting a box that I had with white paint.  I picked a paper from the Pretty Little Studio Marigold Paper Pack (8" x 8").  I cut the paper to fit my box and adhered it with Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.  

I thought the Pretty Little Studio Gold City Paper was awesome for the lid.  I cut the paper to fit and adhered it to the top of the lid with the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive and the sides of the lid with Tombow's Mono Aqua Glue.

To embellish my lid, I used several products from Pretty Little Studio.  I adhered the orange striped feather from the Marigold Feathers Diecuts with Mono Aqua Liquid Glue directly to the lid.  Next I added some gauze with the same glue.  Then, I added the California Poppy Vintage Diecut and the Orange Poppy #3 Vintage Diecut to the lid using Tombow 3-D Foam Tabs.  I added a few more feathers and topped it off with a Monarch Die Cut.  I finished with 3 resin flowers.

Inside, I filled it with note cards.  I used Pretty Little Studio You and Me 6"x4" paper pack to make the cards.  I folded the paper in the center and embellished each card.  These 2 cards have some of the Marigold Diecut FeathersVintage Diecut Orange Butterfly and Gold Metallic Note Flags, all from Pretty Little Studio, and adhered them with Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive.

Here are more of the note cards.  They are all made with the You and Me 6" x 4" paper pack, the Marigold Feather Diecuts and the Neapolitan 5 cent diecuts.
