I'm in Packaging Paradise!

1

Don’t you just love new catalog season, when you can get your hands on loads of trendy, new products? One such range of products is the Pop of Pink Suite – which includes stamps with fun, summery imagery as well as coordinating accessories. And being me, I just wanted to bust those products out and create some gorgeous packaging with them—so I did!

First up is a huge gift box created using my Gift Bag Punch Board (135862). The main body of the box is made from two pieces of Basic Black 12" x 12" Cardstock (124267). I then cut in half one of the gold-foiled confetti sheets from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper (141648) and wrapped both halves around my box to create a belly band. I wanted to get a little funky with my Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine (141689) though, so I punched holes in the ends of the belly band to make “eyelets” and threaded my twine through them like shoelaces. I finished everything off with a gold flamingo tag created using the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set (141581) and attached it to the project with one of the new Gold Binder Clips (141673).

Having used the entire first sheet of gold-foiled confetti Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper in my first project, I moved on to the second one – gold foil dots. This paper is so beautiful, I didn’t want to cut it up. However, I forced myself and made a simple gift bag, again with the Gift Bag Punch Board. For this one, I let the gold foil dots speak for themselves and kept my decoration to a minimum—another Gold Binder Clip and a Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine bow. I also cut a swirly circle from Melon Mambo Cardstock (115320) using the Swirly Scribbles Framelits Dies (141497) and layered it behind my “Hello” greeting for another pop of pink!

Finally, no beautifully packaged gift is complete without a matching card—which I made using some more of the gold-foiled dot paper layered onto a card base made from Basic Black Cardstock (121045) and the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set (141581). For this project, I found the Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine (141689) a little bulky for the look I was going for, so I split it to get some thinner fibers. You’ll find that it’s made up of three twists of five threads; I just used one of these twists on my card for a lighter bow.

I have always loved how Stampin’ Up! product suites allow me to produce beautifully coordinated projects –and I think I always will. Hope you have fun with this great suite!
