Iris Folding Paper Craft
Pillow Box

This is the neatest little 'pillow' box.  Fill it with a silk scarf, candy or other small surprise!  Use your own Iris Folding design to go with the occasion, may it be a wedding, birthday.
Make one copy on heavy cardstock and another on regular printer paper. Cut the numbered part of the candle out of the cardstock.  This will be your aperture opening for Iris Folding.  Use the other copy as your template.  Once you have finished your Iris Folding, adhere a piece of paper over the back side, to give your box a nice inside finish.  Cut the box out and score along the dotted lines. All of these lines are folds that need to be done to complete the box.  Use 2-sided adhesive tape or glue to adhere the sides together.  Put a 'keepsake' or candy on the inside and and tuck the ends in.  This is great for showers, secret sisters gifts,  wedding mementos - the ideas are endless.  Use other Iris Folding designs.  You can make this box whatever size you'd like.  Experiment a little!
