Creativity Abounds Blog Hop...Anything But a Card


Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop together on the third Wednesday of every month.  Our hops focus around a particular bundle, holiday, occasion or product suite.  This month we are focusing on Anything But A Card. 

1:24 team

Every month we create a tutorial bundle. The tutorial bundle is available as a gift with a qualifying purchase  or can also be purchased.  We also have a stamp camp 3 times a year.  The next camp will be on June 14th & 15th.  Stay tuned  to find out what the theme will be of the next stamp camp!


I have been thinking about little gift ideas to take with me to the Stampin' Up! On Stage event.  I am short on time so it has to be something fairly quick and easy or it won't get done.  This little box was created using the Mini Pocket Envelope dies.  

  • Cut 2 of the Mini Pocket Envelopes from the Delightfully Eclectic DSP.
  • Adhere one of the side tabs to connect the 2 envelopes.
  • Score along the bottom edge 1-3/8".  Measuring 1-3/8" from the longer tabbed edge.  
  • Along the bottom edge cut along each score line up to the 1-3/8" score line.
  • Adhere the other side tab to fully connect the 2 envelopes.
  • Fold the 2 smaller flaps in.  Apply adhesive to one of the larger flaps and secure down and repeat on the last flap.
  • Punch 2 holes through both the 2 larger scalloped top flaps.  Pinch in the side flaps to create a gusset.
  • Fill with goodies and tie close with Black & Very Vanilla Large Check Ribbon. MiniPocketEnvelope_DelightfullyEclectic_side

The Basic Black label was cut using the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies.  The Fresh Freesia CS was cut to fit in the label 7/8" x 1-7/8".  The flowers were cut using the Lovely & Sweet Dies in Basic White CS. The black centers of the flowers are from the Classic Matte Dots.  The sentiment is from the Let's Go Shopping set.  


Inside of my bag I have some Werther's caramel candies.  The bag can hold a truffle or 2, some chocolates,  maybe even a small bar of soap.  I hope you can use this idea next time you are needing a little bag to package some treats.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for the hop!

Great project! I have those dies and have never tried joining them like this to make a bigger pocket. Thanks for the idea. :-)
