Cricut Friday: Christmas Pillow Box

Festive pillow box with rosette

Festive pillow box with rosette

It’s box time and I created a fantastic project to share.  You need the following supplies and tools:

  • Cricut machine
  • Cricut/Creative Memories Holiday Frames & Tags cartridge
  • small circle punch
  • 7mm rhinestone
  • cardstock and patterned paper
  • adhesive and hot glue gun

Set the Cricut machine to cut the box at 2 1/2″, which is the width of the box.  Follow the fold lines and finish the box.  To make the rosette, you need to cut 6 pieces and the setting was 1″.  Fold and glue the pieces together to make the rosette.  To keep the rosette together, punch out two small circles in the same paper and apply to the center of the front and back with hot glue.  Apply the medallion and rhinestone to finish the piece.  This pillow box is the perfect size to hold a gift card or fill it with small candy.  Switch out the papers and it can be a party favor.  The possibilities are numerous.

You can find the Holiday Frames & Tags cartridge and circle punch here.  Happy Christmas crafting!
