Autumn Blessings Pillow Box

Hello and happy Wednesday! Isn't it hard to believe we're more than halfway through October and well into autumn?

With that in mind, I'm so pleased to share a tutorial for a lovely pillow box using the Ewe-N-Me Printables Autumn Blessings Pillow Box. This project is perfect for fall and Deena makes it super easy to create.

The image prints out on an 8.5" x 11" sheet and I printed it on white cardstock.


I cut out the image and followed the directions on where to fold and score -- it's that easy!!


Once that was done I inked the edges with black ink and started to shape the pillow box. The printed image has brown edges, but I used a darker ink to add even more contrast.


I used double-sided tape to attach the flap to the other side of the box.


Following the scored edges, I folded the sides inward to finish the pillow box. It's not necessary to glue the sides, but I added a bit of tape for extra reinforcement.


Isn't this just so lovely? 


I made several boxes -- they look great as part of my autumn decor -- they would be perfect for upcoming gift giving, too!
