How-to: Recycled Gift Card Puff Pillow

Puffed Pillow
To puff the pillow, take the ends and carefully work the scoring to fold them creating the pillow shape.

Optional decoration can be added by using scraps or pieces of recycled paper to spruce up the package. I used a scrap piece of wrapping paper, an old piece of sheet music and some raffia to add a little color and texture to my pillow. If you would like to use two pieces of paper like I did use the following measurements:

  • 3.5” wide by 5.5” long for the outside piece
  • 3” wide by 5.5” long for the inset piece

We’d love to see your recycled puff pillow envelopes. Please post a link in the comments or photo in our Flickr pool.
