Graphic 45 
Pillow Gift Boxes 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Happy to share with you my project
 for this month #SimplyG45 using the beautiful
Seasons Collection. I made these pretty little 
gift boxes using just some cutting dies and 
some left over die cuts that I had in my stash.
Affordable, easy done in 60 minutes or less. 

I always keep some extra die cuts left over from
a previous project to use on a next one. These
are usually from colored cardstock.

These die cut shapes are also nice to have on hand
for a quick and easy this one!

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies:
Pillow Gift Box Die
Various other Dies 
Die cuts (from my stash) 
Polka Dot Ribbon 
Red Sticky Double Sided Tape

Cut 2 shapes from the collection
sheet using the pillow box die.
Assemble accordingly. 
Tip : Use red double sided
tape to adhere boxes. 
This makes assembly easy and will 
prevent the box from falling apart. 

Cut a few shapes from the collection
sheets using various dies.
The black and gold shapes are
from my stash. 
Tip : Did you know... 
you can use wax/parchment 
paper to place on your die and then
your cutting material before 
putting it through your die cutting 
machine. This will make removing 
the shape from the die easier. 

Use shape punches to punch out 
sentiments from the collection sheet 
to add as a beautiful gesture to your boxes. 

Add the ribbon to your box first.
Make a bow. 
Tip : Make a double bow, 
make sure your ribbon piece 
is long enough (I used a meter). 

Build your cluster with the die cut shapes.
Add the G45 Brad (remove the 'arms')
to the centre of butterfly and adhere on top. 
Tip : Adhere to the box using
foam adhesive the
cluster dimension. 

Now you can add a little gift
or chocolates on the inside of your
pretty gift boxes.

Happy Papercrafting! 


  1. Gorgeous. Great use for scraps. I also make extra die cuts so I don't waste the paper and store them just for use on little projects like these. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Nice little gift box!
    Where is the die "Pocket Gift Box Die" from?
