On the occasion of our wedding I made some guest favours for all of our guests. The gifts are pillow boxes filles with 5 wedding almonds each and these pillow boxes are also place cards. I made a fast tutorial for you.
- Pillowbox Stanze oder Schablone
- ovale Stanzer
- Hochzeitsmandeln (wenn ihr mögt)
- pillow box die or template
- cutting tool
- embossing folder
- oval punches
- wedding almonds (if you want)
This way the little gift boxes are looking much more precious.
... and glued them with a good glue together. I used one of the Tombow fluid glues for it.
It was a lot of work but it was worth it!
This is how the finished pillow box looks like.
As my boxes also should be place cards I printed all of our guests names in brown onto vanilla cardstock and cut the names with my oval Stampin' Up! punch. Be sure that you have enough space between the single names... not like me during my first try *grin*.
Then I cut an oval scalloped mat for all the names.
After I inked all the edges I glued the names plates together...
... and adhered them to the single pillow boxes.
Then I added a heart to every female names plate and a leave to every male names plate.
And for our helpers I made these small thank you boxes.
Maybe you like to idea and will take it for your celebration as well.
