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.
