Thanksgiving crafts {Free printable turkey boxes}

Hello C.R.A.F.T. readers! It’s Rachel from Lines Across and Let’s Wrap Stuff back again to share another holiday printable pillow box! (Check out the cute bat boxes I shared last month.) I really love pillow boxes, because they are super fast and easy to put together, and they store flat. Some favor boxes take a ton of time and folding and gluing to create (don’t get me wrong I love those too!), but these pillow boxes are a quick and easy craft. They would be perfect for a Thanksgiving treat, a holiday party at school, or as a cute little edition to the kid’s table for Thanksgiving dinner. These are a little larger than the Halloween themed pillow boxes I have been sharing. They are just big enough to fit a small gift card, candy, treats, jewelry, or even a special note.

5. (Optional: an X-ACTO knife or some sort of scoring device)


how to make pillow boxes

step by step tutorial diy

1. Download and print out the free template onto white cardstock. (The colors on the template look brighter than they will once you print onto cardstock.)

2. Cut out the pillow box and the feathers.

3. Score along the curved lines at the top and bottom of both sides of the pillow box. I like to use the dull side of an X-ACTO knife. You have to be careful not to press too hard and cut all the way through the paper.

4. Fold the long vertical lines and fold in the round tabs a little bit. Then glue the white strip to the opposite inside of the box. Let it dry.

5. Spread glue around the white rectangle in the middle of the feathers. Then glue this area to the back of the pillow box so that the feathers stick up at the top.

6. Let the glue all dry and then pop open the box by folding down the tabs. Make sure that the brown tabs go on top for a more finished look.

DIY baby carrot costume

It’s Day 2 of Design Dazzle’s Halloween Bash, and I’m sharing another super cute (and ridiculously easy) Halloween costume idea for Maxwell! He has quite the collection for Halloween 2014, ha! We’ve done a cheeseburger, game boy, koala bear, panda bear, and now an organic carrot! I’ve got lots DIY costume ideas too! I think he actually likes my dress up games and photo shoots! Here’s Maxwell in his carrot costume enjoying a carrot!

Homemade halloween costumes for babies: DIY carrot costume!Here’s what you need to make your very own carrot costume:

I have the Rit Dye in the picture because I attempted to dye the elastic green. It kind of worked, but since I tied the tuelle around the elastic you can’t see the band anyway. I’d skip that step if I were you!

I measured Maxwell’s head with the elastic and cut a piece where it would fit around his comfortably. Then, I hand stitched it together with a needle and thread. You can see my pathetic attempt at dying the elastic green in this picture…

I just cut 6 inch wide or so strips of tulle and tied them around the elastic band… easy freakin’ peasy, y’all! Then all I had to do was make the organic stickers! I used white mailing labels because I had those on hand and a quarter to to trace around and make a pretty circle…

Here’s a close up of his USDA Organic sticker and 100% natural!

I love that this costume does not mess up the onesie at all! Just take the 2 stickers off and voila, you’ve got your orange onesie back for everyday wearing! How stinkin’ cute is my giant organic carrot?! Homemade halloween costum
