You can use adhesive squares to make the tag and gold stars pop a little more on top of the box, it adds a little extra dimension!

I also recommend only cutting one side of the pillow box at a time. You can cut multiple pages at once on the Spellbinders Platinum 6 but it was creasing the side panel too much. Taking the extra 5 seconds is worth it, can’t have the pillow box coming apart in the mail!

If you’re pregnant and stumbled upon this post looking for gender reveal ideas, congratulations! I hope you have so much fun announcing the gender of your baby with these gender reveal boxes!
