Perfectly Pretty Pillow Box Packaging

For those small gifts (candy, chapstick, earrings, necklace, etc.) this little pillow box makes the perfect packaging!

The card stock for the pillow box is cut out using a die in the Big Shot diecut machine--which cuts and scores the card stock perfectly every time. The inside of the box measures about 2" x 2-3/4" with the thickest part being about 1/2". The belly band is just a strip of card stock and designer paper wrapped around the box and secured. I made the flower out of two Ruby Red 5-petal flowers. I also punch a flower out of Kiwi Kiss card stock and cut two of the petals out for leaves. To add dimension, the edges of the flower parts are sponged in the same color as the card stock. The flower center is a half bead from the Pretties Kit.
I can't tell you what's inside of this pretty little box, but I do want to tell you that I cut a 2" x 2-3/4" piece of card stock, punched 1/16" holes evenly spaced to hold the contents and slid it inside... perfectly packaged in this pretty little pillow box! Go ahead, say that 5 times fast... :)
Happy Stampin!

This is such a cute box. I love the flower!

Thanks for saying prayers for my grandma. She's still in the hospital. We hope things improve soon.
