Puff Pillow gift boxes

I made these Puff Pillows as little thank you gifts for a couple friends of my Mom's. She wanted something to give her friends for gifts & visits while she was in the hospital. The template is from Snooks and Boo - and it was so simple - I mean SIMPLE!!! Trace the template, score in the grooves on the template, cut, decorate, and fold!!! VOILA!!!! CUTE and easy!! And the templates are a very reasonable price. The pillows are about 8 inches long and about 3 or 4 inches wide so you can fit some nice things inside - gift cards, chocolate bars, jewelery, a stamp or two, etc. I used More Mustard and Old Olive as my base colours, stamped them with my Hero Arts leaf set and the SU set for the "Thanks". I used my square punches (scallop & plain) and some leaf eyelets I've had forever!!! See?!?!?! I AM using up things like I said I would....LOL....but, I'm still buying....gulp!!!!

Very nicely done, Chris! Sounds like you can get two out of a sheet of paper then? That would be a fairly cheap little gift box/pouch. Great idea! Hope your mom is doing better. {{hugs}} and prayers! Kel

Thanks!! It takes a whole sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 because you have to fold it over - the template itself measures 8 1/4 x 9 - BUT if I were to make a whole bunch I might use thinner cardstock than SUs (like Michaels paper) then it wouldnt' be such an "ouch" cost!!! LOL My Mom is doing well, thanks for asking & for your prayers!! We all appreciate them!!! :)
