Designer Series Paper Gift Box!

Stampin' Up! Petal Promenade Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

This month we have a fabulous Buy 3 Get 1 Free Special on Designer Series Paper, so I want to show you the different papers and what you can do with them! And today I want to show you a sweet box with a lid created from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Petal Promenade Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This box was easy to create. I followed a tutorial by an English Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator named Sam Donald (Pootles). You can see the tutorial HERE.

The top of the box was made using the Designer Series Paper and the bottom was made with Blushing Bride card stock. The ribbon is the amazingly gorgeous Powder Pink 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon! Don’t you love it?

Product List

Delicate Window Box!

Box flat

Look at this precious little box!  It is created using the Window Box Thinlits Dies ~ do you believe how pretty it is?

Box pieces

These are the pieces of the box before they were assembled. Truthfully, this box is really a snap to make!  Cut two pieces using the dies and put them together!

Box angled L

The other day I got together with two friends for a morning of window box making (i.e., papercrafting!!).

I’m taking the picture here, but look at the girls having fun and concentrating on their boxes!

Sweet Spring Gift Boxes!

Wisteria cu

Hi Friends!  Hope you each had a wonderful weekend.  I’ve been busy making some sweet Curvy Keepsake Boxes for Spring gift giving.

Two Keepsakes

One box is made from Wisteria Wonder card stock and the other one from So Saffron.  For a …big…embellishment on each one ~ a flower and some leaves made with the Bouquet Bigz Die.  I also added some Gold Sequin Trim and Venetian Crochet Trim.

Saffron Keepsake

Each box is tied with Gold Baker’s Twine, and the flowers are attached with Mini Metallic Clothespins.  I put a tiny gift inside each box and gave them as little Easter gifts 🙂



Most of you know that I like to take photos of my cards on my outside bench.  Well, since we’ve moved, the bench has a new location…and I LOVE IT!!  Isn’t this a beautiful setting?  Just wanted you to know where most of my photos will now be taken 🙂


Have a wonderful day, and don’t forget to place your order to get FREE SHIPPING!

Sweet Little Box!

Pumpkin Box 1

This sweet little box uses one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! colors ~ Crisp Cantaloupe.  This is such a soft peach color.  Some people think it’s pink.  Have you been watching the fuss on the web about “The Dress” and whether it’s gold and white or blue and black??  Well I feel like this color is kind of like that…is it soft peach or soft pink?  What do you think?  🙂

This is actually the little box from this month’s My Paper Pumpkin.  The kit came with fold-out thank you cards that you insert into little envelope boxes.  I wanted to decorate one of the boxes for Spring, and this is what I came up with.

Pumpkin Box cu

The Artisan Embellishment Kit really did much of the work for me.  The tiny resin rosebuds, the fabric flowers and the doily are all from that kit.  The paper covering the box is from the 2013-15 In Color Paper Stack, and of course the feathers!  Don’t you just love our Four Feather stamp set and coordinating dies?  I fussy cut the tallest feather to give it more dimension.
