Stampin' Up! Christmas Pillow Boxes for Gift Cards

  • Stampin' Up! Snow Globe Dies

Christmas Gift Card Pillow Boxes

I had some left over scraps from the October Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I knew I would find a use for them because they had a wonderful, subtle sparkle to them.  Sure enough,I ran across an idea from another Stampin' Up! demonstrator,  Silke from www.bastelsafat.de using the Kraft Pillow Boxes.   I was able to use these wonderful, pieces of paper to die cut little sparkly trees to use for a small scene on the Kraft Pillow Boxes  These printed, die cut pillow boxes are great for gifts and wrapped goodies.  They come 10 pillow boxes to a package.  Use item# 147018 to order.  You'll have them in time to decorate them and add gift cards for many of the holiday gifts you're going to need.       

To cut the trees, I used the dies from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  I hand cut a 5" strip from Whisper White for the rolling snow mounds, making sure I left enough room for the sentiment.  I used a sentiment from the So Many Stars Stamp Set and stamped it in Real Red on the Whisper White hills.  I used the Cardinal from the October Paper Pumpkin Kit and stamped the small bird in Real Red onto the snow.         


I glued the trees to the back of the rolling snow mounds and then I added Tear & Tape Adhesive to the back of all of the images.  Because of the rounded shape of the Kraft Pillow Boxes, I wanted to make sure that the images would hold when the Pillow Boxes were assembled.  Tear & Tape Adhesive is a strong adhesive meant for boxes and 3D items.  And I love that you can tear it rather than searching for your scissors hidden under a mound of craft supplies on your desk when you're in the midst of creating.      

To finishes the pillow box, I tied a bow out of Real Red Cotton Ribbon, and added a Jingle Bell to the bow.  I think this is such a cute gift package.  I know I'll be making many more.    


You'll love how quickly these Kraft Pillow Boxes fold together  A little decoration makes them something special. Your heart will smile when you see the joy your small, hand-made treasure gives to family and friends.  You'll love everything you make with these cute Kraft Pillow Boxes.
