Pillow boxes are nice containers for small gifts. They're adorable on bridal tables for attendant gift boxes. Pillow boxes are perfect for candies, jewellery, tiny confetti pouches or any number of decorative gift or party needs. You can make pillow boxes for many different uses with card stock or beautiful papers.Trace a pattern onto the card stock or heavy decorative paper. Trace directly over the scoring and folding lines, pressing down to indent the paper. Fold in the open end of the pillow box after filling it with your material of choice. Hold it closed with a piece of tape, round label or a decorative sticker. Tie a piece of lace, satin ribbon or fibre around the pillow box.
