Fun Fold Gift Packaging

Fun Fold Gift Packaging

If you’re looking for a unique way to package a gift, I have a great DIY paper crafting idea to share today. It’s a fun fold using a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper. It’s so easy! With a few quick creases, you can create a pocket to hold a variety of gifts. Add a few embellishments, and you’re good to go. It’s super cute and is sure to wow. Think of all of the possibilities. A great way to use some of the pretty paper you’ve been hoarding. 

Fun Fold Gift Packaging

For today’s project, I used a variety of Stampin’ Up!’s products:

  • One 12 x 12 sheet of Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper. Select this gorgeous package of double-sided paper free during Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration sale with a $50 order before tax and shipping. Watch the video below to see how it’s folded. 
  • Gold Foil die cut with Deckled Circle Dies — fifth from largest. Find the Deckled Circles Dies as an Online Exclusive.
  • Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper (heart pattern) die cut with Deckled Circles Dies — sixth from largest.
  • “Love” image (available as a Paper Pumpkin add-on) die cut with Real Red Card Stock with Stampin’ Up!’s Foam Adhesive Sheets.
  • Real Red ribbon

You could win a Confetti Birthday Card Kit. See a list of participating blogs at the end of this post. You’ll find lots of paper crafting inspiration. 

Most Adored Treat Box

My project is a cute DIY Valentine treat box. I modeled it after the sample found on page 3 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. I filled the treat package with a box of Conversation Hearts, but it’s large enough to hold a variety of snacks and/or small gift items. Can you see other uses for these fun boxes? Wedding favors? Shower favors?

Doggone Friendly 2024 Desktop Calendar

In just a few days, the calendar rolls over to 2024! Let’s celebrate with some fun handmade, desktop calendars. (See this past post for a couple of other cute designs.)

Today’s calendar design features a sneak peak from Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. The Doggone Friendly stamp set is perfect for any and all dog lovers. You can purchase it beginning January 4, 2024, when the catalog goes live. (#162729–$20)

This full background stamp suits all of our family well! Don’t you just love all of the dog faces? So many breeds to choose from. I created this calendar for my sister who has a Boston Terrier named Reggie. 

Stampin' Up! Doggone Friendly

  • Basic Black card stock base measures 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
  • Layer for the base of the calendar: Real Red card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4, Basic White measuring  5 x 3 3/4, stamped with the Doggone Friendly stamp set with Memento, Basic Black measuring 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Add notepad.

  • Created the focal piece by stamping the Doggone Friendly stamp set with Memento on white and die cutting the dog I wanted to feature with a circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Layered this on a circle punched with Real Red card stock. Added a bow from the Baker’s Twin Essentials Pack. Finished it off with three Black Matte Dots. 

I know my sister will love this calendar, especially when it features her dog. 

Be sure to watch the video below for step-by-directions from my craft room in Mesa, Arizona. Although the video features a different calendar design, the basic instructions still hold true.

Petal Park 2024 Desktop Calendar

Hello, and welcome to the December Stampin’ Up! Trip Achiever Blog Hop. We’re so glad you joined us. As a group, we’ve worked our Stampin’ Up! businesses enough to earn the Annual Incentive Trip. This is no small accomplishment; less than 1% of demonstrators worldwide achieve this. The stampers in this group come from different countries around the world. Be sure to visit all of the participating stampers to gain a host of crafting inspiration. Look for a list of hoppers at the end of this post.

The year 2024 is just around the corner! So that means it’s time to create some fun, handmade desktop calendars. I love to make these every year and give them as gifts. Today, I show you a version that includes a notepad. The layout follows the same principles as an easel card. 

Petal Park 2024 Desktop Calendar

I love this project because you can use a variety of stamps, inks, and papers to create individualized calendars for your friends and family. Check back this week to see other themes I’ve created. 

Petal Park 2024 Desktop Calendar

Here are a few basic directions:

  • Boho Blue card stock base measures 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
  • Layer for the base of the calendar: Night of Navy card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper measuring  5 x 3 3/4, Boho Blue measuring 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Add notepad.
  • Calendar layer measurements: Night of Navy card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper measuring 5 x 3 3/4, Boho Blue card stock measuring 3 1/2 x 2 3/4. Add calendar.
  • Created the flowers using Stampin’ Up!’s Petal Park stamp set and coordinating Petal Park Builder Punch with Night of Navy and Boho Blue Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads. The sentiment comes from the Easter Bunny stamp set. And, the label is die cut with Basic White card stock from the Countryside Corners Dies. Stamped with Night of Navy ink. Added pearls to the flowers. 

Here’s another version using the Ink Botanicals Designer Series Paper, Petal Park stamp set, Petal Park Builder Punch, and the sentiment from Playing the Rain (heat embossed with white embossing powder).

Sparkling Snowflakes Gift Packaging

Welcome to the Stampers Dozen December Blog Hop. This month, we feature gift packaging and tags. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop to get that last-minute inspiration for your holiday crafting. Or save the ideas to use for Christmas in July and beyond. (Or use other stamps in your collection to create birthday — or other — themed packaging.)

Sparkling Snowflakes Gift Packaging

Sparkling Snowflakes Gift Packaging

Do you need some last-minute gift packaging? Or do you just want to have some fun with your stamping supplies? Either way, I think you’ll love today’s project. From my craft room in Mesa, Arizona, I transform a sheet of basic white tissue paper and a brown lunch bag into fun, holiday themed DIY gift wrapping.

For both the tissue paper and the bag, I use Stampin’ Up!’s Sparking Snowflakes stamp set from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog. The stamp set is still available for purchase through January 3, 2024. Save 10 percent when you purchase the stamp set and the coordinating dies as a bundle. 

For the bag, I chose two of the snowflakes and used the Azure Afternoon and Balmy Blue Classic Stampin’ Pads and stamped randomly to cover the bag. 

I used three colors (Azure Afternoon, Night of Navy and Balmy Blue) for the tissue paper. I designated a different snowflake for each color and began stamping the tissue paper. Super fun. See part of the project below.

Stampin' Up! Sparkling Snowflakes

And then I added a tag. The tag, from the Merriest Trees Bundle, is die cut in Balmy Blue and then stamped with Azure Afternoon ink. I stamped the snowflake in Azure Afternoon on a basic white die cut circle punched with the 2 3/8-inch Circle Punch, layered on an Azure Afternoon die cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies. It’s topped it off with an Azure Afternoon ribbon and an Iridescent Pearl. 

I hope you enjoyed this project. I love finding ways to use my Stampin’ Up! products in creative ways. Please let me know if you have questions about this or other stamping techniques.

Thanks for stopping by today!
