End of the Year Pillow Boxes
So I had never made a pillow box so I did a little research on the internet about what size I should cut them with my Cricut. The one person that I watched cut her pillow boxes at 5 inches, I decided to cut mine at 5 5/8 inches. I found out at this size I could cut 4 boxes out of 1 12 x 12 piece of cardstock and it also allowed me to fill the boxes with 4 SMARTIES candies. This only shows half of what I made. I had to make 28 of these little darlings.
I designed the boxes using my Design Studio, the Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge and the Ultimate Creative Series Sampler Cricut cartridge. I couldn't find just a plain pillow box on the Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge so I used the one with the diploma on it, hid the contours and inserted the shooting star from the Ultimate Creative Series Sampler Cricut cartridge. I cut the inside out from yellow cardstock and then once the box was assembled I stickled it.
On the back I used a clear stamp I got from the Michael's dollar bin.
I am entering my End of the Year Pillow Boxes in the following challenges:
