Stampin' Up! Christmas Pillow Box Treats 

We're all really busy this time of year, sending cards, shopping for gifts, exchanging treats and gift cards with your hair dresser, your postman and your neighbors.  Rather than just handing someone a unadorned gift card or a plain  candy treat, why not make it extra special by packaging it in a small pillow box decorated for the season? Use the fun Kraft Pillow Boxes from the  paper & Packaging page from the Stampin' Up! catalog -- page 192-193 --and embellish with your favorites from your Holiday catalog purchases.    

I decorated my small pillow boxes with the largest snowflake from the Snowflake Snowfall Thinlits Dies in Whisper White, created a bow with the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, and stamped a Merry Christmas sentiment in Cherry Cobbler from the Timeless Tidings Stamp set.  The card today uses a Crumb Cake cardstock base.  Then a layer of Powder Pink.  And then a layer of the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The pillow boxes hold two Ferrero Rocher candies.  It perfect for a gift card and a couple of candy treats.    

I die cut the snowflakes out of Whisper White and added a couple of dimensionals to the back and added it to the front of the folded pillow box with the two candies inside.  Then I added the stamped sentiment with a mini glue dot to the snowflake.  I tied the Polka Dot Tulle bow three time to give it a fun, puffy look.  I looped the ties ribbon around the Kraft Pillow Box and hid the ends under the bow, attached to the top of the snowflake using mini glue dots.

Image how a tray full of these cute treat boxes would look on your desdert table.  Or take a tray of these treats for your co-workers or gifts for your busy postal workers, UPS drivers or Amazon delivery people.

I'm buying more of these pillow boxes with my next order so I can do a similar version with hearts for Valentine treat for my exercise group and others I want to remember.
