Welcome to another Stampers Showcase blog hop where we are showcasing everything to do with gift packaging. I am so glad that you are here visiting me at my blog, Stamping Flair in Melbourne today. Stampin’ Up! offers us so many possibilities for gift wrapping by providing us with cute boxes and bags and the beautiful products that we can decorate them or create our own gift packaging.
My projects feature the beautiful Boho Indigo Product Medley which you will find on Page 9 of your Annual Catalogue. It is filled with a whole lot of amazing products to let your creativity take over.

*11 piece photopolymer stamp set
*12 piece Boho Indigo Die
*48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
*Very Vanilla 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) dry embossed sheets, 2 each of 3 designs
*Die cuts with gold foil accents, 2 sheets each of 3 designs

Mini Gift Box
I used one of our Mini Shipping Boxes and covered it with a sheet of the DSP which I cut to size. As the paper is 6″x6″ it didn’t wrap around but I liked the look of the Kraft box peeking slightly through as it matched my vase and the look of the project.
The Very Vanilla embossed panel comes in the Product Medley as does the gold embossed leaf. You get a variety of these and they are just beautiful accent pieces. A panel of cardstock was heat embossed in gold using the leaf stamp and then sponged Mint Macaron and Garden Green over to create the border at the bottom.
I made a matching gift tag as beautifully packaged gifts need a beautiful gift tag.
I made the best use of the items in the Product Medley including the label which I stamped and sponged on. The accents of green and Cinnamon Cider work well against the blues of this suite.
All the products I have used on these projects are listed at the bottom of this post. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Let it Snow Suite
I’ve chosen one of the cute suites which I really love. The Let it Snow Suite (Item #153386) is on Pages 18-21 of the catalogue. This suite has several products in it and includes a very cute Snowman Builder punch, Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and 2 sets of stamps – Snowman Season and Tiny Keepsakes (Item #150460). The coordinating colours of Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White give it a real wintry feel. I know it’s not your typical Aussie Christmas but somehow I love snowmen at Christmastime. This suite just adds to the Christmas magic with it’s sparkly Designer Series paper and pretty colours.
My card features one of the cute snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set. Simply stamp and punch out – it’s that easy. I fussy cut a beanie and his shawl is from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit (Item #150425). This kit comes complete with 60 stitched felt accents in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce and Real Red, 96 enamel shapes, 36 felt snowballs, 1.8m of washi tape – lots of goodies to dress up your snowman and your projects.
Mercury Glass Designer Acetate
The circle is punched out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. On top of that is one of the hidden gems in this catalogue – Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. LOVE IT! You will find this on the bottom right of Page 44. There are 2 designs which have a faux mercury glass finish. One is a speckled finish and the other is a cracked finish and they are stunning.
Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle
The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle which includes the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. For a variety of sentiments you really can’t go past this stamp set. It has you covered for all types of Christmas cards for family, friends, faith-based, fun, gift tags and even new year greetings – 18 stamps in all.
Coordinate this card with this little gift box which is really quick to make and so cute decorated with the Let it Snow DSP. I saw a version of it on Pinterest from Aural Models and adapted the way I made it. It’s a really fun pull out box and t’s got the element of surprise as it opens out in the opposite way to what you would normally expect.
The box is quite easy to make.I embossed the Real Red cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and used Stampin’ Write Markers to create the multi-coloured sentiment.
Details for creating the box can be viewed HERE.

Stampin’ Up! Gable Boxes are the perfect box to package all kinds of gifts. Chocolates, guest soaps, bath salts, tealight candles all will look so pretty in these boxes which can be decorated in many ways. You can decorate them with Designer Series Paper, spritz them, stamp them and the list goes on.
These boxes come scored and folded so it’s a matter of just opening it up and putting the tabs in the slots. No gluing necessary. They are on the last chance item list and I wanted to look back at a couple of projects I had done using both the white and silver boxes.
This is the Lustrous White Gable box decorated for a birthday. You could make it a party in a box with party poppers, balloon, little cake, candle and sprinkles. Click on the photo to be taken to the full post with products used.
Here is the Silver Gable box which I decorated and filled with gift tags for teacher gifts at Christmas. So easy to decorate and yet perfect to hold a gift. Click on the image to be taken to the original post which has all the details.
My Newsletter which is due out tomorrow features a brand new project using this product. Sign up to receive details and other helpful tips and news.
My project today packages the Butterfly Elements which is a free Sale-A-Bration product you can get with a $90 purchase. What a lovely gift this would make for a crafty friend or for crafty you.
I have used also used the Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. To punch out the butterfly, cut out a section of the DSP. Then use a post-it-note as a ‘handle’ to help you maneuver it into the punch. This means you won’t waste any of that beautiful paper.
Cut a strip of the Designer Series Paper and wrap it around, attaching it with double sided tape at the join. Add the tag created with the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP layered onto Balmy Blue cardstock. I love the cheerfulness of these 2 colours. Pop on your butterfly with some mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and you have a cute little gift for a friend.
Purchases that total $90 will receive your choice of a free Sale-A-Bration Level 1 item. There are also products available for a $180 purchase (Level 2 item) There is no limit to the number of items you can choose. So if you spend $180 you can either choose 2 x Level 1 items or 1 x Level 2 item.

Thanks for stopping by today. I’ve been a little bit scarce with my blogging lately. Main reason – Christmas. I’ve been madly prepping cards and gifts.. In my day job, I work at a school in administration. I receive lots of lovely gifts and cards from the staff I work with. To share Christmas with all these lovely people, I make each of them a card – there are about 100 staff. Then there’s all the cards for the rest of the friends and my orders. No matter how much I prepare early, it’s still a bit crazy at the end.
I’ve also made about 400 gift tags to give away as gifts. I thought these would make lovely teacher gifts for my daughter Cassidy to give her teachers. So today’s Step-it-Up Sunday shows you the gift packaging. The idea is made simple with our Gable Boxes.
Cut a strip of Designer Series Paper to a width of 5cm. Wrap this round the entire gable box, adhering the edges with liquid glue as you fold it along the edges. There will be a gap as the paper doesn’t reach all the way around – make this the front of your project. You will cover this gap with your image.
Punch a circle from Tranquil Tide cardstock and then emboss it with the Swirls and Curls embossing folder. Attach with glue. Stamp and punch out the tag. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tie a bow around the handle.
Add another layer to the focal point by die cutting a doily from the Spot of Tea dies. To make the glimmer paper go further, I die cut the smaller doily inside the larger one at the same time. This gave me a frame to use on this project and a second doily to use on another project.
To step up this project, stamp and colour in the holly from the Peaceful Poinsettias bundle. Then die cut it.
Fill this with gift tags, chocolates, mini soaps to give as gifts.
Have a really enjoyable week. Hope your Christmas preparations go smoothly.
