Pillow Box Gift Card Holder

Good morning!! Well, that was alot of snow over the last couple days! They say we're in for some more from Tuesday into Wed evening. Santa won't have any trouble with his sleigh this year, that's for sure!

Last night I had to come up with a neat idea to hold a gift card. I had bought a 10 pk of pillowboxes back in the August sale and decided to come with something using one of those.Here's what I came up with and I'm quite happy with it!

Materials: (all CTMH unless otherwise noted)
  • Aspen paper pack
  • Pillow Box
  • Clear Embossing powder
  • embossing stamp pad
  • Heat Gun
  • 'Say It In Style' stamp set
  • 'All Decked Out' stamp set (swirls on the tag)
  • 'Holiday Red' ink pad
  • 2x2" block and 4x4" block
  • snowflake punch (michaels)
  • glitter writer (michaels)
  • adhesive
  • quickutz tag die


  • trace the pillowbox pattern onto the aspen paper, cut out and adhere to the pillow box
  • cut a strip of about 3/4" (I eyeballed this part to the space in the tag), this goes through the tag, looks like ribbon
  • cut out your tag using your cuttlebug or machine of choice
  • stamp image on tag
  • stamp the image you want to emboss on the tag using your emboss pad and then add your clear embossing powder, heat till it goes clear
  • adhere tag to your pillow box
  • add your glittered snowflakes and put your gift card inside and you're done!
