Pillowbox Valentine by Pretty Paper Cards

Today on my Friday Facebook Live we are going to make a darling Valentine Pillow Box! Set your alarm for 4:00 pm Pacific Time and we will create it together! Here is the link to my Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/PrettyPaperCards/

A Pillow Box is a darling treat holder ~ perfect for holidays that just call out “candy” ~ like Valentine’s day! This treat holder is a snap to create with the Stampin’ Up! Kraft Pillow Boxes. They are pre-made (which means easy) and SO cute! I keep some on hand all the time for various occasions.

Decorating these cuties is easy. This design works for any occasion. First, create a belly band. That’s a band that goes around the center of the pillow box. This is a great way to decorate this type of box because (1) it can slide off and on, and, (2) you can attach anything onto the front of it.

The belly band on this pillow box is 6-1/4″ x 2-1/2.” For the Valentine Pillow Box I’ve used the pretty From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. Score the paper at 1/4″ and 3.” Wrap around the box and secure on the 1/4″ fold using Tear & Tape.

Tie a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon in a bow around the belly band, positioning the bow at the upper front edge of the box.

Punch a heart from one of the pieces of the From My Heart paper and adhere it with Tombow Multipurpose Glue to a contrasting Heart Doily. Adhere the doily to the belly band with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I loved these pillow boxes so much that I made them as favors for my last team meeting of all my demonstrators. They loved them! Here is the way I displayed them at our get together 🙂
