Pillow Box

We have learned how to make gift bags and square boxes, now we are going to make a pillow box. Pillow boxes are so cute  and fun. So here is the one I made. There is a template for you too. Enjoy.
 Paper: purple cardstock.
Tools: 1/8" punch, scissors, paper creaser, craft knife and rule
Embellishments: 1/4" white ribbon and silver 'pearl'
Extras: Computer and printer

Right click on the picture to save in your computer and/or print. If you want to make a printer box, adjust your printer to custom and enlarge the picture.
Cut the template, place it on the cardstock paper and trace the box. Cut it on the black line. Fold it on the dotted lines. Punch two holes on the top flap, fold it over the box and mark where the two other wholes will be punched. Pass the ribbon through the holes and make a bow. Add the embellishment of your preference. The top of the box will be closed. But, like any pillow box, the sides will be used to put the gift in, and to get it out as well.

I hope you have as much fun making this project as I did.
Happy Crafting.
