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

How-To Video

In the video below, a Facebook live replay from my craft room in Mesa, Arizona, I give step-by-step directions for creating this fun fold.

Countryside Corners Birthday Card

Countryside Corners Birthday Card

I have a love, love relationship with Designer Series Paper. I love patterned paper, and I buy patterned paper. Then, I have to use the paper! A never-ending cycle. But it’s a fun problem to have!

With the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2024 Mini Catalog and SaleABration earlier this month, there’s a lot of new packages of Designer Series Paper with which to create. And, it’s all so pretty!

In today’s post, I share a super easy design that showcases larger pieces of the Designer Series Papers. I CASEd this design from page 63 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. (As an aside, CASE means Copy and Share Everything. In the stamping and creative world, we pride ourselves on sharing with others to offer inspiration.) Then, I “stepped” the card up, adding a few extra elements.

Once I got started creating these DIY birthday cards, I couldn’t stop experimenting with all of the new papers. Be sure to watch the video below to see all of the samples.

Countryside Corners Birthday Card

Here are just a few quick details. 

  • Balmy Blue card stock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
  • Balmy Blue card stock layer measuring 5 1/4 x 4, embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder
  • Countryside Corners Dies (fourth from largest)
  • Lighter Than Air Designer Series Paper — three coordinating designs — 3 3/4 x 2 1/4
  • Birthday sentiment from Go To Greetings
  • Sentiment stamped with Azure Afternoon on a white die cut from Countryside Corners Dies
  • Balmy Blue Bakers Twine
  • Azure Afternoon gems from the Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots

How to Video

From my craft room in Mesa, Arizona, where I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I give step-by-step directions for creating this card, and I show a set of other samples using a variety of Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers.

You can earn a few of the papers I showed today free during SaleABration. There’s just a month left to earn free paper crafting products. With qualifying purchases of $50 and $100 (before tax and shipping), select from among exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, gems, an embossing folder, and a coordinating die cut.
