Hybrid Holidays | Holiday Pillow Boxes

December 18, 2013

It's day 3 of Hybrid Holidays and I've got the perfect solution to your last minute solution holiday gift wrapping!

These Christmas Pillow Boxes have turned out to be real life savers in the gift wrapping department this year, as they turned out to be perfect for gift cards, treats and plenty of other small gifts.  I used this Pillow Box Cut File from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs and patterned papers and tags from Celeste Knight's Brown Paper Packages Collection to craft these simple but elegant boxes.

What you'll need:

  • Pillow Box Cut File or Template
  • Patterned Papers of Choice
  • Tags
  • Twine
  • Adhesive
  • Doilies (optional)
  • Vellum (optional)
  • Buttons and bling (optional)

  1. First select the patterns,tags and embellishments you will be working with.

  2. Setup the cut document(s) in your die cutting machine's software, making sure that your shape is sized appropriately for your gifts. Create separate documents for different sizes.

  3. Cut the appropriate number and sizes of pillow boxes you will need.

  4. Fold along all perforated lines, then secure flaps and edges with adhesive. Remember to leave your top flap unsecured for access.

  5. Add tags, sleeves and any other optional embellishments to your pillow boxes.

  6. Tuck your tiny gifts inside for safe keeping until Christmas.


Note: For my own Holiday Pillow Boxes I took a few different approaches: for some I added tags attached with  twine and vellum layered over top for an elegant look and then for others I wrapped my boxes with doilies and then created sleeves with word art that would easily slide over top of the pillow box.  

Happy Holidays
