Color Your Season, Pillow Box

Oh my goodness!  How cute is this pillow box?!!  Love it!!!



  • Whisper White Card Stock: 2 ¾” x 3 ½”              7/8” x 4”    scrap
  • Gold Foil: 2” x 2”
  • Granny Apple Green Card Stock: 2” x 2”           


  1. Assemble pillow box by pinching the center and folding the ends in along the score lines. No adhesive needed. Note: the notched side is meant to be on top of the other.
  2. Die cut the smallest label shape from the Stitched Seasons framelits from the largest piece of whisper white cardstock.
  3. Stamp leaf image from the Blended Seasons stamp set using Memento black ink onto the left side of the label shape.
  4. Stamp the leaf image again onto a scrap of white. You will only need a couple of the smaller leaves from this piece.
  5. Color all the leaves on the label shape using the Stampin’ Blends (and a couple of the smaller ones on the scrap cardstock). I started with a layer of light daffodil, added a bit of light pumpkin along the veins of the leaves. Blended with the dark daffodil and then blended the entire leaf with the light daffodil. If you’d like a bit more orange, add a bit of the dark pumpkin.
  6. Add the label shape to the centre of the pillow box using dimensionals.
  7. Stamp greeting using black ink and trim ends as shown.
  8. Add this to the pillow box using dimensionals.
  9. Die cut the leaf/berry framelit from the granny apple green cardstock and tuck it under the greeting.
  10. Die cut the leaf framelit from the gold foil and tuck it under the greeting.
  11. Cut out two of the smaller leaves from the scrap and add them to the pillow box as shown in the photo.
