Cardboard Pillow Boxes:
To start the whole process off, you will need actual cardboard pillow shaped boxes.

Alternatively, you can also DIY them yourself using everyday cardboard materials in your required thickness grades and use your crafting and cutting skills.

Larger ones can even package balls, shirts or other sports gear when required.

- From supermarkets or gift shops, wrapping paper is available in any required printed designs and color combinations. Red, green, gold or any other sparkly Christmassy colors are the most popular ones, be sure to check for best suitable printed designs that enhance that beautiful festive feel at the same time.
- Be sure to estimate how much Christmas wrapping paper you will need and also get the clear tape, paper glue and other bits and bobs that will be used while finishing up paper wrapping for your pillow design boxes.
- Cut the wrapping paper into required sizes and place a thin layer of paper glue on the underside of the paper to give it a clean finished look and seal the edges neatly running your thumb across the line softly. Also, apply some clear tape along the edges if required.
Adding the Embellishments:
Having wrapped your pillow shaped gift boxes in Christmassy paper and finished the whole thing neatly; do add a bit of Christmas unique embellishments on top of these as well. Not only will these make your gift boxes look that much more attractive but using the right Christmas embellishments, you can bring that festive feel out correctly.
