I was going to make some pillow boxes as treat boxes for Kelly’s birthday party, and found out my template made too small boxes! So I had to redo it, but found out it was quite easy to make them without templates as soon as I got the hang of it!

1. You will need
8 1/2″x11″ paper
Embossing tool or bone folder
Circle shape (I used Fiskars template)
Double sided tape or glue

2. Score one mark at about 1/2″ from the right side, and one score on the half of the leftover area. I made mine at 10 cm and 20 cm from the left side, as I only have a ruler for centimeters!

3. Fold along the scored lines.

4. Mark the circled shape as shown on the photo, on both sides

5. Cut along the lines

6. Mark another circled line using embossing tool or bone folder, that touches the ends like in the photo

7. Embellish the box as you like, then glue/tape together along the narrow folded piece, and fold in the ends.
