Paper Door Elf Sized - Pillow Gift Box

Happy Saturday! I am back today with more Whimsy PaperDoor  Elf Sized inspiration. This time I have a little pillow gift box to share.


I used one of the kraft pillow boxes included with the PaperDoor kit. Using VersaMark ink I stamped the little holly leaves all over the pillow box (leave the pillow box unassambled for stamping). This gives a nice watermark effect. Then I cut two strips of paper - 1 1/4" wide / 6 inch long - from green DP (also included with the kit) I punched out 3 different size circles using my paper punches (you can use circle dies as well, but for these simple circles I find my punches work very well and faster than if I would use dies). The largest and the smallest circle are cut out from red DP and the middle one is cut from kraft cardstock. 

I stamped the candy cane image and the holly leave image onto white Copic friendly cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my Copics ( G43, G46, G29 & R24, R46, R59). Then cut out the images with the matching dies.

On the smallest (red) circle I stamped the sentiment (from the kit as well) with VersaMark ink and white heat embossed it. 

Now it's time to assemble the decorative sleeve for the little pillow box. Take the two green paper strips and glue them together on one end. Let dry. Assemble the pillow box. Now wrap the strips around the box until the two ends come together and it fits tight around the box. Cut off excess, but make sure it overlaps about 1/2". Now glue the two ends together. Arrange the band so that the two joints where the strips are glued together are on the underside of the box and out of sight.

Adhere all three circles on top of each other starting with the largest. Glue the holly leave right above the sentiment on the right side. Using little foam tape circles attach the candy cane on the left hand side. At last adhere two small jingle bells (red and green) to the candy cane bow using a clear drying embellishment glue.

Voila - the little gift box is done and ready to be filled :-)
