110lb cardstock (1 sheet for every 2 favor boxes)
Hot glue gun
Fabric of choice (the total yardage should be equivalent to the total area of your cardstock)
1. Find a pillowbox template. There are a number online for free and for purchase.
Here's a free site:
2. Enlarge or reduce the template to your desired. (I used screenshot and powerpoint for this step). For my favors, I was able to put two pillow boxes on one sheet of cardstock.
3. Print as many boxes as you'll need. Any printer that will take your cardstock should work, the printing will not show.
4. Spray the blank side of the cardstock with the spray glue and adhere it to the fabric. I glued all of the cardstock to the fabric and then cut the pieces apart, but you could also cut the fabric into smaller pieces first.
5. Wait until the glue dries.
6. Cut out each pillowbox along the template lines.
7. Using the bone folder, score the round ends and the fold lines. Fold the boxes. (If the fabric comes loose during this step use the hot glue gun for touch ups.)
8. Use the hot glue gun to glue the tab to the inside of the box.
9. Fill with your favor (and maybe some tissue paper).
10. Fold the ends closed along your scores.
11. Tie a ribbon around the box in your contrasting color.
Congratulations! You're finished!
