So, have you noticed the Kraft Pillow Boxes on page 193 of the catalog? These are fantastic! There are 10 in a pack for only $5. They have a little design on them.
I used these for a Make & Take activity at my Bingo event recently. Everyone was talking about how versatile these boxes can be. There's a use for every holiday and more. These are the pillow boxes we decorated.
The cut out is from the Stitched Labels Framelits. Cut from Whisper White.
The flowers and sentiment are from the Abstract Impressions stamp set. The flowers are in Grapefruit Grove ink. Stamp off the larger more solid stamp. The more detailed stamp is stamped without stamping off. The leaves are in Call Me Clover. They are stamped off too.
The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink.
Run the 1/8" Black Cord through the label and around the box. The holes made by the die are perfect. Tie the cord in a bow. I think I used about 18 inches of the cord. I ran the cord around the short way so that the box can be opened without messing it up.
That's it. See how quickly these can be made. Now what could we put inside? I got this idea from Jeria Coleman recently at a meeting of the NC Demo Facebook Group. I used individually wrapped Life Savers and decorated them with some of the new colors for Stampin' Up! this year. I used card stock and the new 6 x 6 designer series paper in coordinating colors. Punch the paper with the 1 1/8" Scallop Circle punch. Add with a glue dot.
They are so cute! Thanks to Jeria and her team for the great idea.
Need an easy gift to make, especially for a group? Keep these boxes in mind. I don't think I would wait to order them right before a holiday.
