Happy Saturday, and it’s Halloween! All of my Halloween boxes and bags were completed and mailed out to grandchildren in Florida, so I decided to make an Acorny Thank You Square Pillowbox treat holder. This could also be used at Thanksgiving-wow, that is not very far away…
Did you notice my pillow box is a little different? Well, you were right. Most pillow boxes are just flat, but I decided to make mine with a little handle. Once I die cut the Kraft cardstock, I put the pieces together using Tear and Tape, then I grabbed my Oval Punch and figured out where I wanted the oval to be, and punched away.
I added a belly band of Early Expresso and Into the Woods DSP using Fast Fuse and Glue Dots. Next I stamped my Acorn images onto Whisper White and punched them out with the adorable new Acorn Punch. They are held together with a Glue Dot, then popped up with Dimensionals. I added a leaf from the Into the Woods Elements that had been sponged a little with Old Olive ink, then attached it with a Glue Dot. The Burlap Ribbon was pulled through the opening and gathered together with a piece of Early Expresso Seam Binding Ribbon which I then tied into a bow.
Super easy-a great project for a Saturday morning, with plenty of time to get ready for your favorite college football game. (GO GATORS!)
