Pillow Boxes - fun and easy!

Hello my crafty friends!  I  have something fun, but super simple for you today!  
I love the Wrap It Up cartridge and tried a pillow box for the first time.  I was surprised at how fast it went together.  This would be perfect if you had to make a lot of little bundles of goodness to give away quickly!

Scroll down to the bottom for a video showing how I made these!


I cut the red pillow box at 9 inches.


I used Black Diamond Crinkle Ribbon and tied a double bow (see video).

  
These would be so great for teacher gifts, Halloween, special treats for friends, Christmas  . . .


I think I am going to cut a bunch of these from patterned cardstock just to have ready to go when I need a quick treat box to give to someone!  They store flat!

Here is a video showing how I make pillow boxes!:



Have a wonderful day!

  1. These are beautiful. And they are about my favorite gift container to make on the Cricut. Probably because they go together SO easily! Hugs- Glora
