Pillow box (not pet)

I wanted to do some cute packaging for a little gift - I love pillow boxes for this kind of thing. I have two different sizes of box templates, and while this little gift could have used the smaller one, I always go for the bigger one because it's more fun to decorate.

I had a lot of fun with this - the pink layer is a Martha Stewart wrapping paper that I've used before with a really nice quilted texture, and the patterned paper and brad are from the Basic Grey "hello luscious" collection. I wanted to coordinate the flower with the patterned paper, so that was my starting point. I pulled in the wrapping paper and glittered letter, and then went a little crazy with the baker's twine. Turned out pretty cute, don't you think?
