Christmas Pillow Box

Hi all.  Today I am posting a pillow box for The Cutting Cafe design team.  This is the first time that I have made a pillow box, but it was really quite easy.  I chose my designer card stock and used the plain box svg file from the assorted pillow box set.  I added JOY from another Cutting Cafe file and placed it in the center of my template.  Before I glued it together, I added a piece of parchment paper behind the JOY cut-out.  Then, I taped it on the back.  The top and bottoms fold at the curved lines and that is what gives it that pillow shape.  I used a sentiment from another file and printed it on white card stock.  I sponged the edges and added the red bow.  That was all there was to it!  Regina has many pillow box files for different holidays and occasions, or do what I did and make your own cut-out design. 

I hope you will try your hand at making these cute and easy pillow boxes.

Just a reminder that I will not be posting again until Oct. 26th.  See you then!

Till next time...
