Welcome back to my blog. Today I’d like to share the swap projects members of my Netty’s Inkers Team created for our October get together. The theme was gift packaging and it’s amazing how different all the projects are.


This cute pillow box was created by Anne. She used the following supplies:

  • Card: Artistry Blooms DSP
  • Ink : –Merry Merlot
  • Tools: – Home Together Dies
  • Other: – ribbon and bell (retired)

This clever gift box was created by Karen. I’m not sure what it is called but when you gently pull on the lid it opens as per the pic on the right. The opening is bigger than it appears so you can fit most anything that will fit in the box through the opening.

List of supplies:

  • Card: – Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Snowflake Splendour Designer Series Paper,
  • Tools:-Simply Scored Scoring Tool,
  • Other: –Blue Adhesive Backed Gems

This charming little pillow box was made by Vicki with all retired products. It is so sweet with the Jingle Bells Designer series Paper and the lovey Star of Bethlehem.


This sweet little lantern was made by a guest at our gathering, Frances, who is my Stampin’ Up! sister. We have been sisters for nearly 14 years. Stampin’ Up! is such a wonderful way to develop friendships. Isn’t this a gorgeous idea?

Supplies Used:

These are the mini self-closing boxes I made for the swap. I was very happy with them. I made a bigger version a long time ago, but these littlies are so cute.


  • Card: –Night of Navy, Seaside Spray, Dazzling Diamonds & Silver Glimmer Paper (retired), Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper
  • Tools:– Fancy Phrases Tag Topper punch, Layering Circles Dies, Star of Bethlehem die (retired)
  • Other: – Polka Dot Tuille Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid Glue
