3D Thursday: Easter Pillow Boxes

Pillow boxes. An ‘in and out of fashion’ item, I think, for crafters. Actually I don’t know if they are in or out right now, but I do know I was for some reason possessed by all the devils of craft to make some this week.

I was also convinced that somewhere I had an one on an embossing board – crafters will know what I mean. A big slab of some science-y compound or resin or such, with grooves and channels to score the lines, to then be cut out.

A craft hunt! Hurrah! I NEVER do one of those, right?? So, donning crampons and grabbing belaying thingies I tackled the craft mountain. Like A-ha, I hunted high and low but could not find a scoring board. BUT, after a bit of pondering and some much needed Kendal Mint Cake I remembered an ancient purchase, back when the internet was in short trousers, of a bunch of Anna Griffin templates. Back to the north face! The templates had survived their spell in the wilderness and I could get going. Of course I could have downloaded one, or used my Cricut, but you know how it is when you get a bee in your bonnet. Oh, no, I have just reminded myself of the bridesmaid bonnets. On reflection I am quite surprised we weren’t attacked by a swarm of bees, actually, mistakenly thinking we were a good pollen source…

Anyhoo, back to the pillow boxes. I used quite a few things on these. The base is an old pad of Kanban card and the rabbit is from my Rabbit’s Tea Party digikit. The other bits and pieces are just from stash.

I know the ribbon has fallen in a rather unfortunate place on this one – I only noticed after I had taken the photos!! I’ll go fix it…..

      1. Really? Perhaps some strange atmospheric condition over the UK? Or, the bunnies are going to take over the world and they have selected us to act as their go-betweens…

  1. I love your posts, always make me smile. Seems like there’s a lot of us doing accidental craft doing cleans through searching out a certain item or other reasons. These are lovely, those bunnies are just adorable; I’m intending to make Little Dot bunny bunting for a rabbit themed nursery (very early purchase, but we got the border for the room yesterday with bunnies and bears on) and these would work so well

  2. Very cute! I have a Cricut cartridge for these, and made some with bunny shaped apertures for my daughter’s party one year. I didn’t manage to get any fancy trim (or misplaced ribbons!) on them though! You know the worst bit of a craft hunt? The part where you realise you sold it on eBay the month where the hoover broke and the kids all needed shoes! Whoops!
