Joyeux Noel

Hi friends and welcome to another great challenge week over at The Kraft Journal! Before I talk about my little pillow box creation, I wanted to let you all know about a give away - a $20 voucher for The Kraft Outlet!! Head over to the blog to find out more!

This week the challenge is to use die cuts in your creations. I ended up layering a couple of stamped label die cuts over a kraft pillow box to make this festive holiday gift container. These great pillow boxes are the perfect size for little treats or a gift card!

I stamped the pillow box with a snowflake pattern in silver to give it an extra festive touch and used chipboard flag die cuts and coordinating die cut flag stickers to make the little "to/from" flags which were glued on to toothpicks and tucked behind the labels. The little box was finished with a big red bow.

I hope to see you play along this week! Just by linking up your creation featuring kraft cardstock or products purchased at The Kraft Outlet, you will be eligible to be part of our Top 3 and also have a chance to win a voucher! Fun!!
Supplies: Pillow Box (TKO), Stamps - Very Vintage Christmas, Holiday Labels 14 (WMS), Ink - Silver (Encore), Black/Riding Hood Red (SU!), Cardstock - Vintage Cream (PTI), Chipboard Flags/Stickers (Jenni Bowlin), toothpicks/ribbon (my stash)


  1. Love, love your holiday pillow box, Jen! Those silver snowflakes on the kraft is SO beautiful! Love the layered die cut labels and all the stamping. And those toothpick flags are just the sweetest things evah!

  2. Very pretty, Jen! Love the little flags you put there, especially the one with the black and red! Looks like a party already! Very lovely gift box!!

  3. So cute Jen! I can't imagine somebody not wanting to get that present from under the tree. :-) Sweet!

  4. Jen, this little pillow box is adorable! I love the little "To" and "From" banners. And the label with the bright red and gray - so festive! What a great little presentation for a lovely little gift!

  5. Oh wow Jen, I just love this pillow box and the banners are so dang clever! What a wonderful inspiration for our patrons to snap up some of the kraft pillow boxes to alter as well... fantastic job Jen!

  6. Well, isn't this just the sweetest little thing. So adorable. Your little pennant to/from flags are darling. Fabulous job!
