Kraft Pillow Boxes

I love having things on hand to create small gifts.  For those planned events and those unexpected happenings, these kraft pillow boxes with white polka dots make a great party favor, treat holder or gift card packaging.   These pre-made, kraft pillow boxes are easy to dress up and are very affordable.  You get 10 boxes for $5.  Add some ribbon, a belly band or diecut — and you’ve got a really cute gift in minutes.

It is really easy to change the color, too.  Using the direct to paper technique, I applied Blueberry Bushel ink by dragging the ink pad across the pillow box.

At first, it looks like an inky mess.  Using a tissue or paper towel, spread the ink into the creases and folds, and then wiped away the excess ink to make those polka dots pop!  I just love polka dots.  And, this two-tones of Blueberry Bushel ink are just fun!

For the belly band, I used a strip of Granny Apple Green cardstock cut 2″ wide by 8.5″ long.  I folded and pinched the belly band around the pillow box, taking care to ensure that it would slide off easily.  Then, I applied some tear & tape adhesive to secure the one end of the belly band over the other end.

To dress it up more, I tied a bow with some of the Gorgeous Grape 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon and added a rainbow foil diecut from Celebrate You Thinlits.  

To create the rainbow foil, I scribbled by Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers on silver foil card stock and allowed it to dry before die cutting.  Rainbow colors I used are:  Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy.

I applied some fine-tip glue pen in the middle of the diecut word “celebrate” and attached it to the belly band.  Alternatively, I could have applied a small 1″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the area directly behind the letters “ebra” of the diecut word “celebrate”.
