Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Gift Packaging.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project gorgeous? Either way, you’re in the right place!

I recalled a handmade box I created a number of years ago, called a self closing box. They are quite easy to make, and to use, so I thought I would make one using current products, with Christmas giving in mind. The box is big enough to hold a few mini chocolate bars, perfume, socks etc. You can also make them taller, so they are quite versatile, and I think, attractive.



  • Stamps: Peaceful Deer
  • Inks: –  Cinnamon Cider
  • Card: – Cinnamon Cider, Very Vanilla (thin), Gold Foil, Blackberry Beauty SDSP
  • Tools: –  Scoreboard, Layering Circle Dies, Sprig punch, Bone Folder 
  • Embellishments: – Gilded Gems, Stampin Dimensionals

I hope you are inspired by my giftbox.  I’d love to know what you think! Thanks for joining us for our Blog Hop.
