Boxes and Bags - Stampin' Up!

We are on the road again today.  Home is going to look really good... especially my sleep number bed tonight. :)

I have a box and bag to show you today that are based on the 2, 4, 6, 8 box in this post.  The only difference is that I made them with designer paper and therefore they can be made larger.

Both are made with retired designer paper because I wanted to use some of my stash up but any of the current DSP would look great.  This first bag uses a large patterned retired designer paper and I love the way it wrapped around the bag.  What's fun about using Stampin' Up! DSP is that you can then easily use another sheet in the pack to make a coordinating card.

The bag was made larger by cutting the paper at 10 1/2" x 12" and scoring at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2, and 10.  The top was closed off by cutting off three of the tabs and folding the fourth over the top and adding a ribbon.

This box was created for a make and take at my last downline meeting. Both ends were closed and a handle was added. I decorated the front with the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and added the small butterfly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.

Pin It
Here the close up shows the detailed embossing on the butterfly.  There are 5 different sized butterflies in the set each with a different embossed pattern.  I love the way a few pearls or rhinestones make each project special.

So the next time you need a bag or box for a gift I challenge you to make your own.  Just grab a piece of your favorite Designer Series Paper - then cut, score and decorate!  Have you taken a look at  the Designer Series Paper in the new catalog?  Place an order today and have it ready for the next time you need to wrap a gift.
