Christmas Pillow Boxes #latinacrafter

Here are the pillow boxes I decorated for Christmas gifties using the October Craft Kit from Latina Crafter.

The kit comes with only two pillow boxes. I used one of the boxes as a template and created to create extra. If you have an electronic die cutting machine and have the SVG, you can cut what you need, but, if you don't have one or want the boxes to be uniformed you can easily create your own.
First, carefully open the seam from the box. Trace the template onto thick cardstock.

Before you start cutting, score your lines.

To score the folds on the ends, I carefully traced and scored.  I placed the cutout on a mouse pad and firmly scored the ends, do not add to much pressure or you will tear your paper.

Don't forget to erase all your pencil marks.

Here is another look at the pillow boxes. I used paper from Echo Park to decorate {not included in the kit}, wrapped with twine, stamped the tag and sentiment using the stamp from the kit.   Save your template for future use. Thanks for stopping by today.
