Pillow Box Treat Holders

I recently made these pillow boxes to hold cookies I had baked to share with friends. I used one of the many freebie  pillow box templates you can find online and traced the template using Make the Cut to create a cutting file. Since I needed the box to be fairly large, I first cut the original template in half, and enlarged it so that each half would fit on a 12x12 inch piece of cardstock. The two halves were then glued together to create a pillow box that was about 5 inches high and 7 inches long with a depth of about 2 inches.

To decorate, I cut a wide belly band from printed paper to wrap around the box and added a round scallop edged tag. The pair of cute paper pieced teddies are from Cuddly Cute Designs Love You To the Moon and Back file. The boxes turned out to be a good size to hold candies, but not quite deep enough for holding many cookies.
