2. Place the template on the back of your autumnal cardstock and use it as a stencil, to line and transfer with the pencil the shape on your cardstock. Then move the template to the side, and cut the cardstock following the line you’ve just created.

3. Take the cardstock and the template and overlap them so that they match perfectly, then use a couple of pieces of washi tape to fix the stencil in place.

5. Carefully remove the washi tape and move the template to the side – keep it if you plan on doing more pillow boxes!

6. Glue the extra little flap against the opposite side so that you’re revealing the pattern on the outside of the box. Make sure the glue is completely dry before you move on and that every side of the strip has adhered well.

7. Now fold the curved sides, place your gifts in, add a ribbon and enjoy!
