Here's my card - an alternate idea:

  • I added a Peekaboo Peach card base (8-1/2 x 5-1/2)
  • The pillow boxes are embossed with a flourish design - so pretty! I cut one to 2-7/8 x 4 and used it as a layer on my card front..
  • I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the circle and mounted it on Dimensionals (included in the kit), adding one of the gold foil leaves to it.
  • I love the copper Baker's Twine - what a great addition to this card.
  • Add a couple of the die cut leaves and stamp the greeting in the bottom right corner and WAAA LAAAA!

My little box is the perfect size for a treat or gift card.

  • I cut the top and bottom off the pillow box.
  • I scored at 1/2" on the right side of the front of the box and then turned it over to score on the other side 1/2" from the edge.
  • Then I scored 1/2" from the bottom, cut the tabs and glued my little box together.

What a great idea Kelly! Changing the pillow box into a gift card holder is something I would have never thought of! I love it! 💖
