starry pillow box {DIY}

tape and twine
I feel like I've been doing packaging-idea posts a lot lately, but it's just so much fun to come up with pretty ways to wrap things! So today I'll show you how I made this starry pillow box!

star stamp
I started with a piece of kraft paper. I carved a star stamp out of an eraser and used white paint to create a pattern on my paper.

pillow box template
On the back of the paper, I traced my pillow box template and cut it out. If you google "pillow box templates", you will find dozens. Just print one out on card stock and you'll have your own reusable template.

I scored the folds in the box with a bone folder. You can also use the tip of a closed pen if you don't have a bone folder.

The box folded together easily, and I used a bit of glue on the side flap to close it.

wrapping supplies
I gathered together a few different supplies to decorate my pillow box and came up with a couple of ideas for wrapping!
