Happy New Year! It’s time for our LAST 3D Thursday project of 2020! This week it is Sarah Wills’ turn, and she has created this adorable gift packaging for a small pack of tissues. Sarah used items from the NEW Snail Mail Suite, which can be found in the NEW January-June Mini Catalog, and will be available to order on January 5th!
I just love the new Snail Mail Suite! It has such fun colors and adorable imagery. How can you not smile when you see that snail?
Sarah’s project is not only gift packaging…it also doubles as a card! The top flips up and and there’s a little “hello” note to whomever is lucky enough to receive this cute gift!

Today, we have Guest Designer Mary Knabe joining us for 3D Thursday, and she has created this simply stunning wreath using products from the Poinsettia Place Suite!
Isn’t her project beautiful? The green ribbon is from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. (The gold piece for the hanger is also from that same item.) She used Red and Gold Foil to make the flowers, using cutting dies from the Poinsettia Dies set. I just love how shiny the flowers are! Her sentiment is heat embossed in gold, and is from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. She finished the wreath by embellishing each flower with Beaded Pearls! So, so pretty!
Mary’s finsihed wreath measures 10 inches in diameter. She used a plain 10 inch styrofoam wreath base, which can be purchased at any craft store or the dollar store!

Happy Thursday! Today we have Designer Twila Davis sharing her adorable 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Gift Bag! Making your own gift bags is a great way to perfectly coordinate your gift giving this year. Use the same paper for your cards, tags, and bags!
For her project, Twila used the ‘Tis the Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. The finished bag measures 4 x 3 x 1-1/2 inches wide, so the bag is small, but is perfect for giving small treats, gifts, or ornaments to friends and family. You can change the theme of the bag to fit any occasion, just by switching up the paper!
If you would like instructions to make your own bags, you can download Twila’s FREE project sheet HERE or by clicking on the image below! In it, she gives detailed, step by step instructions with measurements, as well as a complete supply list:
Please check back next week for another fun 3D Thursday project! Thanks for stopping by!
This week for 3D Thursday, we are switching things up a bit! Instead of featuring only one project, we are doing a blog hop with all FOUR of the 3D Thursday designers! To see all of our projects, just “hop” from one blog to the next using the “next” button at the bottom of each designer’s post. All of our projects today will feature the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes!
For my project, I used the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes to create gift packaging for essential oils. I have a good friend who is the essential oil QUEEN! She uses them all the time, and she is also an avid crafter. She (normally) does a lot of craft fairs and vendor shows, and often makes cute packaging for her oils, as well as for the products she makes with them. So this project is inspired by her!
These boxes are the perfect size to fit six 5 ml bottles of oils OR five 15 ml bottles. (I used Young Living oils for my project, but other brands may be different in size.) I chose six of my favorites, and plan to give a few of these as Christmas gifts this year. The bottles are small, so when they are lined up in the box, there is some empty space near the top. To fill that space, I printed out a description of each oil and some of its uses, then trimmed the paper to the width of the box. I then rolled it up and tied it with some ribbon and a small gift tag. It fits perfectly in that unused space, and is a nice way to finish this project!
To decorate the outside of the box, I used wood grain print paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. (I also lined the inside of the box with the same paper. ) I created the wreath using the Wreath Builder Dies, and used paper from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper behind it. The “Peace” sentiment was made with the Joy Dies.
Here’s a quick list of step-by-step instructions for this project:
Cut two 3-1/2 x 5-1/4 inch pieces of woodgrain paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. Adhere one to the top of the box and one on the bottom of the inside of the box.
Cut a 2 x 5-1/4 inch strip of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper and adhere across the top of the box.
Cut the wreath pieces using the Wreath Builder Dies and Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. (I used Pear Pizzazz for the bottom layer of my wreath and Garden Green for the top.) Cut the bow pieces from Real Red cardstock.
Adhere the wreath and bow using Mini Glue Dots. Add a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the inside of the wreath, and some Wonderful Gems around the wreath as well. Add a small Linen Thread bow.
Adhere a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to a Foam Adhesive Sheet and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Peace Die to create the bottom layer of the sentiment. Cut the top layer of the sentiment using the same set of dies and adhere with multipurpose glue. Adhere the finished sentiment piece to the front of the wreath.
Use a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of each oil bottle when placing in the box. This will keep them neatly lined up and will prevent them from moving around in the box.
Print your oil info, trim, roll, and wrap with a ribbon and a bow. Add a small gift tag with the sentiment of your choice. (Mine is from the Little Treats stamp set and I used the Timeless Label Punch to make a quick and easy tag).
Place your rolled paper in the box, close the top, tuck in the tabs, and your gift is ready to give!
The Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are truly a versatile product and can be used to create packaging for so many different types of gifts! Use them to package notecards, tags, jewelry, oils, treats (they are food safe) and so much more! There is so much you can do with these, and are a must have for holiday gift giving!

It’s my turn to create for 3D Thursday! For my project, I have created a shaker top gift container using one of the Round Tins from the Stampin’ Up! 2020 August-December Mini Catalog. I got the idea for this project from another demonstrator called The Caravan Crafter. She created some gorgeous shaker tins with the Snowflake Splendor Suite, so her projects are really what inspired my project for today! My version can be seen below:
Mine was created for a friend who has a fall birthday, so I went with that as my theme. I used the Life is Beautiful stamp set for the tree and leaves, as well as a sentiment from the Little Treats stamp set. The Life is Beautiful set can be seen below, and is one of my favorite sets from the new catalog!
I stamped the tree onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suede ink, and then used Stampin’ Write markers to color the leaves on the stamp before adding them to the tree. I purposely blended some of the colors together so that the leaves were many different colors. The colors I used for the leaves were Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee, and Old Olive. I then stamped the sentiment and cut around the image with the Layering Circles Dies to make a circle approximately 3-1/4 inches in diameter.
Next, I took the lid of the tin and wiped down the inside with a dryer sheet to reduce static on the plastic. I used Foam Adhesive strips all around the edge of the window as shown below:
I cut a 3-1/2 inch diameter circle from the Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP and layered my stamped circle onto it using Stampin’ Seal Plus Adhesive. I added sequins to the inside of the lid, and placed my layered circles face down and pressed all around the edge of the foam strips to adhere the DSP to the strips. Doing this created a seal all around the edge so that the sequins would stay inside the window.
I then cut another 3-1/2 inch circle in coordinating cardstock (I used Early Espresso) for the bottom and embellished with one leaf in the middle. I also added some ribbon around the outside of the tin, as well as a small metallic bow to the top to finish it. The tin can be filled with any gift you wish, but I used mine for a necklace I made with the Acorn Trinkets (but that’s a different project for a different day! 😉 )!
