Adorable Pillowboxes just in time for your fall and Holiday Gift Giving


  • Stampin' Pretty Pillow Box Dies
  • Stylish treat holder or gift holders for your Fall Celebrations
  • Christmas Whimsy:  New Holiday Kit introduced in the Kit Collection

If you're looking for a fun way to add package small treats during fall holidays, you'll fall in love with the Stampin' Pretty Pillowbox Die.   This die creates cute little pillow boxes that you can decorate to match a theme -- like Halloween or Christmas-- or to match a card you're making for someone you love.  It is one piece that folds together quickly, with an assortment of sentiment labels and additional dies to make it easy to add embellishments to your treat / gift package.  I created three samples to show different ways to decorate your pretty Pillowboxes.  I used papers from the Penguin Playmates 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, from the Cute Halloween 6" X 6" Designer Series Papers, and from the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper to create three different pillowboxes.  The cards I've shown before, posted here, here, and here.  A quick reminder:  We've begun the final month of Sale-a-Bration.  Until 30 September, for each $50 or $100 order you place (less tax and shipping), you'll earn FREE Sale-A-Bration selections.

Three pillow boxes for Christmas Halloween and any holiday using Stampin' Up! Pretty Pillowbox Dies | 156321

For the pillowbox below, I selected a print from the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper pack.  I used the die to cut the one-piece pillow box and another die in the set to cut a sentiment label.  I stamped a sentiment from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set in real Red Ink onto the Basic White Sentiment Label.  I also used the dies from the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle to die cut a couple of peppermint images to add to the label.  I used a Real Red Sheer Ribbon bow to hold my pillowbox closed.

For my second Pillow Box, I used a print from the Cute Halloween 6" X 6" Designer series Paper Pack to go with the Halloween card I made earlier.  Again, I cut the one-piece pillow box, folded in the sides and glued them closed, but left the front opening lose.  I used a Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon to hold the opening closed.  I also used the tag die from the Pretty Pillow Box Dies set to create a tag from Highland Heather Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. and tied the tag to the ribbon using Silver Twine., and held sub by the ribbon.  I used another die in the Pretty Pillow Box Dies to cut a sentiment tag in Highland Heather cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the tag. Then I used the Silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim pack to attach the tag to the ribbon.

The third Pretty Pillowbox treat box I created used one of the prints from the Penguin Playmates 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.   After folding and gluing the sides in place, I used one of the dies in the Pretty Pillowbox set to create two hole on the pillowbox flap.  I punched two additional holes on the overlapping layer, and used the hole to pull through a piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon, which I tied in a bow.  The Pretty Pillowbox Dies also included the sentiment label, which I cut from a piece of Basic White Cardstock.  I stamped a sentiment from Banner Year Stamp Set in Fresh Freesia Ink onto the label.
