Stampin’ Up! and Gift Packaging

Surprise! It’s Sunday! And what I have for you today is… not a card, it’s gift packaging in a very fun way. This came from none other than Sam Hammond Donald or Pootles, who does quite a bit of boxes & such. This is not a box. And I did three different sizes cuz they are so cute and well, I couldn’t quit :O)

Aren’t these just CUTE? I haven’t decorated but one of them, cuz I can’t decide… And can you tell there are three different sizes here? The last photo is the smallest; the medium size are the first two photos; and the largest is the polka dot. The color is Highland Heather, not very Christmasy, but could be. The two papers (largest & medium) are from the Penguin Playmates 12 x 12 DSP – a FREE item during Sale-a-bration. The smallest is from the 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP. The ribbon is Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon. To me, they look as though they should be decorated as baby packaging – maybe it’s the color that leads me in that direction. So… friends… Shall I decorate as though they are for Christmas or a for a baby gift? Or maybe a Christmas baby gift? Hmmm – thinking through this and I kinda like that idea, Christmas baby gift. Let me show you the one I did decorate, albeit not overly so.

Gift Packaging

I fussy cut images from the Penguin Playmates DSP, added them to the stitched rectangle with mini dimensionals , bent the rectangle a bit to give it a curve and mounted it with dimensionals to the package. Oh, and yes, I did stamp a sentiment as well – the images called for it 🙂

Let me tell you how these are made and I know you will want to try this yourself. The paper sizes vary, but all must be square AND divisible by 3.


  • 12 x 12 scored @ 4 & 8; turn and do the same again
  • 9 x 9 scored at 3 & 6; turn and do the same again
  • 6 x 6 scored at 2 & 4; turn and do the same again

The how to:

  • After scoring, burnish all score lines. Mark the center of each edge and score from the center mark to the score line in an upside down V. Burnish those score lines as well. Punch holes in each corner about 1/2″ in from point. Thread ribbon through, first through opposite points, then each side point. Gently pull together and tie a bow. See photo…

Super easy and super cute! Here’s what it looks like from the top when it’s bow is tied.

I think I talked myself into decorating these as baby gifts for Christmas – and I have the perfect someone in mind!

If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual 2021 Catalog OR Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.
