Friends with Flair: Father's Day Pillow Box

Today I'm sharing a project I made for Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop. Anyone with a project made with Unity stamps can join in! You can find details, prize information, and a full list of players on the Unity Stamp Company blog.

I'm still having fun with my new {ippity} by Unity stamp set called The Best, purchased with my recently won $20 {ippity} gift certificate and delivered with lightning speed by {ippity} chick Noelle Reese. I wanted a little treat to mail off to my dad with his Father's Day card, and this set was perfect for decorating a quick and easy little pillow box for him. I filled it with his fave candy bars--Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate, which I was thrilled to discover are now being sold in Pack-A-Snack size. Perfect!!
A pillow box cutting file from The Cutting Cafe made this treat box project quick and easy, and a sheet of patterned paper from BasicGrey's Wander collection kept it fun yet masculine.

I'm entering this project
in the {ippity} challenge to make anything but a card, as well as the All Things Unity challenge to Get Manly.

Thanks for checking out my little slice of bliss today. Making the perfect treat for someone special definitely makes me happy!
Emily
