Stamping with Friends Blog Hop January 6th

My blog today is to share my Stamping with Friends Blog Hop January 6th with you. Our theme is “What is old is new”.

So I am recreating some gift packaging with some of our latest products.


  • Take a piece of DSP measuring 9″ x 12″ and with long side at top score at 5″ and 10″
  • With short side to top score at 2″ and 8″
  • Cut as per diagram and punch the corners of top and bottom flap
  • Your 2″ flap is top flap so make sure any directional paper is the right way round when you initially score
  • Cut a piece of DSP to 4″ x 5″ and a piece of white card to 3-1/2 X 4-1/2 and punch all four corners on each piece
  • Glue together as per diagram and double punch the ribbon tab to gain a longer slit
  • Stamp two bees and four wings and also sentiment of choice and your preferred colours
  • Fussy cut and adhere to front of pocket
  • Add ribbon / bow AFTER you’ve added your goodies inside.
