1. Cut thin strips of coordinating scraps and ink all the edges.2. Paint the ends of the pillow box using off white acrylic paint.
Allow to dry and ink ends.3. Decoupage strips of pattern paper to the pillow box starting in the
center and working your way out.
4. When you get to the last strip on either end, allow strip to
slightly overlap fold. Fold end in and ink pattern paper when the box folds.
This serves as a great guide as to where to trim the pattern paper. After
paper is trimmed, ink again.
5. To create bow, cut 4 strips of pattern paper that measure ½ inch
wide and 3 ½ inches long. Cut a point on each end and punch a small hole.
Repeat with second set of strips measuring ½ inch wide and 3 inches long.
Third set should measure ½ x 2½. Ink all edges.6. Starting with the smallest pieces, fold paper to create bow using
brad to hold them in place. Attach the bow to the top of the box.
