Christmas Gift Pack

I would say this was the favourite project that we made on Sunday, and it's so versatile too! This one is made to give to a friend or co-worker.

This one is made with Garden Green and Very Vanilla cardstock, with Designer Series Paper from the Holly Berry Bouquet package. The scalloped square in the middle is from the Squares Duo die, and the brad is from the Clearance Rack. Unfortunately the Real Red striped ribbon is retired, but it's available in many other colours. The stamped image is from the Pines & Poinsettias set.

Inside are two pockets to fill:


I put a packet of Hot Chocolate and a candy cane and Thinsations Cookies in mine. But you can use whatever fits - Cup-a-Soup for a 'get well' pack, or homemade goodies, there are lots of possibilities.

For those of you who want the directions I have given the measurements below. I received one from another demo and 'figured it out' from there, so I don't have a tutorial as such.

The dimensions for the front and back are 4 1/4 inches wide and 8 1/4 inches long, score on the long side at 1", 6 1/2", and 7".

Fold the 1" score on each piece and attach (glue/snail/tape) on top of each other - this forms the bottom making the pack 1" deep.

The two scores on the top form shoulders and top. Hold the top section evenly together and punch through both pieces with the large oval punch (not the extra wide).

The inside pockets are cut 6" wide by 4" high, score at 1/2" and 1" along one long side (bottom), and at 1/2" and 1" on both of the short sides.

Cut the corners out of the pockets...cut up from the bottom to the second score line, and in from both sides to the second score line.

Fold along score lines, place tape on all outside sections of folds - two sides and bottom. Take the outside section already made, set it on the table and hold up one side. Place the first pocket evenly on the bottom and attach the pocket to the side of the packet. Do the same with the second pocket.

Then you can decorate however you want!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Hi Carol:this is such a handy template. As you say, it could be made for any occasion. I like the combo of the striped ribbon and dotted paper!
