25 Pretty Pillow Boxes in a Snap! Plus a fun Team Gift!

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing 25 unique pretty pillow boxes with Sale-A-Bration papers! These were part of a New Years’ Gift for my wonderful Team of Treehouse Chicks!

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of February and I’m just managing to share this post. Time flies! Anyway, the focus of today’s post is my wonderful, creative team! Instead of sending a Christmas gift this past December, I decided to host a New Years’ party and send some happy mail for the event. There were several items included in this gift and I’ve included photos of all the parts and pieces here. Of course, there had to be something handmade in the package! I decided to make pretty pillow boxes for everyone because I figured I could make 35 of them without taking a crazy amount of time!

Instead of making all 35 the same, I decided it would be really fun to play with a few of the Sale-A-Bration designer papers (DSPs). So I made a lovely ensemble of pretty pillow boxes featuring the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and the Hello Friendly DSP. There are 25 or more variations of my pretty pillow boxes shown in today’s post!

You can get both of these gorgeous papers FREE with a qualifying order! More on that later!

Here are some of the assembled packages sent to my Treehouse Chicks Team. There were 35 in total featuring 25 different patterns of paper for the pillow boxes! So fun!

You’ll see a complete list of what’s included in each bag in the letter below.

I saw these Cheddar Chicks when I was at the store and just had to get them for my team for the obvious reason. We are the Treehouse Chicks Team after all! These little snacks are also really yummy… definitely better than goldfish too!

At our New Years Party we had two project demonstrations.

I shared the project and variations that you see just ahead, and my talented team member, Aimee Johnson shared a project as well. We also played games, there were prize giveaways and we also spent some time just hanging out online together! It was very fun!

Check out Aimee’s adorable project. She also shared a number variations on her project as well!

One of my goals in sharing this project was to show multiple ways to make the focal element including some options using the Pattern Party Designer Paper in their gift packet.

I shared several alternatives including some that were made with other stamp sets. I wanted to make sure participants could use their kit and make something fun with the stamps they had on hand.

Here are some additional projects using the same methods used for the card kit project.

Last but not least here is the first batch of my Pretty Pillow Boxes!

This first set is made with 13 of the unique patterns of designer paper in the Sunshine & Rainbows Sale-A-Bration DSP.

I’ve used a variety of cardstock colors and ribbons to coordinate with each piece of designer paper.

The sentiment and little hearts image used on these comes from the Rainbow of Happiness Stamp Set. Plus the sentiments are mostly stamped with the same color of ink as the cardstock. In other cases, I’ve used an ink color to coordinate with the DSP.

These adorable pretty pillow boxes each have four Hersheys Nuggets tucked inside. They fit perfectly too!

I’ve used a variety of ribbons and for most of these, I simply made a little “airbow” and attached it to the tag with a mini glue dot. On a few of them, I tied the ribbon around the top flap and then tied a bow.

For my pretty pillow boxes I’ve only used two of the dies in the set. Check out all the other pieces and parts there are to play with!

Also shown here are two additional pillow boxes created during my recent Facebook Live video. They were made to coordinate with the Sweet Talk DSP and the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle.
