Tips: Use the Offset function on the Silhouette software to automatically create mats for your words and shapes. It’s easy to create multiple sizes of mats for more layering.
You can resize the pillow box shape to make any size box you want. I used the maximum size, which creates a 6”x3 ½” box.
Glue things down to the flat box shape before assembling it.
- Cut out a pillow box shape from Fresh Flowers foil, using the maximum size. Cut out “Amy” from green paper and the same from black cardstock. Cut out a mat from white vellum. Glue the green name onto the vellum, the layer the black over it, letting the green show a little. Glue the finished name onto the pillow box surface leaving room on the right side.
- Stack 2 pink paper flowers and place a pink crystal in the center. Cut 6” of silver Memory Thread, curl it around a pen or Q-tip. Fold the curled Memory Thread in half and, layering the paper flowers on top of the Memory Thread, glue down to the box to the right of the name using Tacky Glue. Let dry completely.
- To assemble the box, fold and unfold along all perforated lines. Place a strip of Humungo adhesive on the long flap. Fold in the long flap and fold the large box sides together. Pop in the side closure flaps to complete the box.
