Pillow Box Printable Hybrid Card Project

At our school tomorrow it's Principal Appreciation Day.  So I made this cute little box for ours.  I did get a gift card for it but it's a little to big so I did have to turn the gift card vertical then tied it in there.  Here are the instructions using the MiDesign@Michaels™ builder:

  • Print off the pillow box template and cut out (right click on the image and SAVE AS)

      • Click on LETS GET STARTED
      • Click on BACKGROUNDS in the left hand column
      • Click on ADD BACKGROUNDS
      • Click on DESIGN TEAM> the arrow next to AMY TEETS
      • To use the Wood Grain Paper click on the WINTER VACATION line; To use the corkboard paper click on the GRAFICA line; To use a Kraft paper click on the VINTAGE FLAIR line (this is the one I used in my example)
      • Drag and drop you paper onto your card; on the pop up choose PAPER
      • On the back side of the card add any little embellishments that you would like to use on your pillow box. Make sure to keep in mind the proportions of the embellishments
      • Click on SAVE and name your creation
      • Next to PREVIEW click on the WANT TO PRINT IT YOURSELF option; YES on the pop up and choose to print the first page; click on PRINT then OK
      • Check your email and print out your card onto white cardstock
      • Trace the pillow box template onto the front of your card and follow the scoring instructions
      • Put together your card! I used Helmar's 450 Adhesive and Zapdots to add dimension to the front of my card. You can put in a gift card or candy to complete the inside
