The Belt Theory

I just adore this pillow box.  It makes for a gorgeous package or a Christmas tree ornament.  The belly band is a ruffled strip of Deck the Halls fabric.  Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler markers were used to ink up the holly stamp from the Peaceful Season stamp set.  Cherry Cobbler seam binding and Clear Tinsel detail the belly band.  And for the finishing touch a bitty pennant with a greeting from the Bright Christmas stamp set.  There is something about adding text to a project that just makes me think things look complete.  I call that the "belt" theory.  What's that?  Well here it is according to moi.  You don't always wear a belt to hold up your pants.  You wear it because it formalizes your appearance--well for me the same is true with a bit of text.
