I'm sharing an easy way to quickly add color to the Koi Pillow Box Die from i-crafter. I like to add little candies or gifts inside of the pillow box to give to a friend!
There are so many ways to bring color and pattern to the Koi Pillow Box - patterned papers, colored cardstock, etc. I went with Distress Oxide Sprays! I cut all of the pieces from the Koi Pillow Box Die Set from heavy white cardstock and sprayed them with a bunch of colors! I used blue and purple on the body, green and yellow on the fins, and then pink on the gills for a splash of color. I love how the sprays give added texture!
The Koi Pillow Box will perfectly fit small candy bars, a gift card, or a pack of sequins! My son loves sequins and I thought this little fishy would be a great way to give him a little gift! There are little holes in the top of the Koi Pillow Box so that you can thread a piece of ribbon or twine through, but I didn't want that to hinder him, so I decided to leave it off. This little guy was so easy to put together! It would be great for teacher gifts! Thanks for stopping by - see you soon!
