Geometric Pillow Box with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a super fun 3D project that I’m calling a Geometric Pillow Box!

I originally saw this idea by Brigit Seidler and Heidi Smith also shared a super cute small one. Here’s my version of the small one that perfectly holds a Lindor Truffle! (I also share this one in my video tutorial below)

I’ve come up with a slightly easier way of creating this, so check out my video tutorial:

Here are pictures of the templates I shared during the video to give you a better idea of where the scorelines are as well as what sections should be cut away.

Scorelines from tick marks to opposite corners
Cut away outside corners

These are so fun and easy to make! And it’s easy to tweak the measurements and come up with different sizes. I hope you give this project a try! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!


Larger Version:

  • Christmas Around the World DSP – 6″ x 6″
    • Score (with the direction of the pattern going sideways left to right) at 1-3/8″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/8″, and 5-1/2″
    • Adhere pillow box and (with the seam horizontal down the middle) make tick marks at 1-1/2″ and 4-1/2″ along the long side

Smaller Version:

  • Year of Cheer Specialty DSP – 4″ x 5-1/2″
    • Score along the 5-1/2″ side at 1-1/4″, 2-1/2″, 3-3/4″, 5″
    • Adhere pillow box and (with the seam horizontal down the middle) make tick marks at 1-1/4″ and 2-3/4″
