Create a Pillow Box with VIDEO

In the new catalogue, you can get a pack of cute polka dot pillow boxes. But what if you want one to match a card you are making, or just one that is totally different? Today I have a video to show you how to create your own pillow box using one from the catalogue as a template.

Here is one from the catalogue, decorated using the Label Me Pretty stamp set and Pretty Label punch.

…. and here is one that I have made using the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Darling Label Punch Box.

Tips:

  • Use a piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper that is 6″ x 6½”.
  • On the long side, score at 3″ and 6″. Burnish the scores and fold.
  • Trace the curved ends and cut.
  • Punch out part of the ½” Circle Punch at each end (on one side only).
  • Use a bone folder to score the curved folds.
  • Adhere the side of the box using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Carefully fold the curved score lines.
  • Decorate as desired.
  •  Supplies:
    • Stamp Set: Darling Label
    • Cardstock: Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, Whisper White
    • Ink: Rich Razzleberry
    • Accessories: Darling Label Punch, 1/8″ Gold Cord, Dimensionals. ½” Circle Punch

Here is my small template with the curved ends and a reminder of what size to cut and score.
