Valentine Candy Pillow Box with Pam Bray

Hi! Pam here today sharing how to create this sweet Candy Pillow Box. Start by making the box. I actually have a Pillow Punch Board from WRMK so it makes it easier to make, but I know there are other avenues for a similar pattern.

Cut two pillow boxes from two different pieces of patterned papers from the Pillow Box Punch Board. Fold one of the pillow boxes into shape, add Double Sided Tape to edge, and seal closed.

Fold one end of the pillow box closed. Place 3 mini candy bars inside the pillow box through the open end and fold closed.

Trim off the curved ends of the second pillow box to form a belly band. Place a small Scallop Circle Nesting Die in the center of the belly band and run it through a die-cutting machine. Note: This cut will create a small window in the band, allowing the patterned paper of the pillow box to show.

Place the belly band inside the Confetti Embossing Folder and run through a die-cutting machine.

Lightly sand the embossed belly band with a Sanding Block. Wrap the belly band around the pillow box and decorate.

I hope you enjoy making candy containers for Valentine's Day and hope it will be a sweet day for all!

Hugs, Pammejo
