Bag in a Box

Have you ever made a Bag in a Box?  Here’s the first one I’ve ever made, but now I have a Halloween and Christmas Bag in a Box in my head that I want to make.

You only need a 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) to make this cute little box.  It’s about 2″ x 2-1/2″ on the inside.  I know a Cadbury Egg will fit in here.  What else do you think will fit?

I like how the flaps fold down on the outside showing the coordinating DSP.

Do you like the cute little tag?  I used the Tags & Labels Framelits.


You need the Envelope Punch Board to make the Bag in a Box.  If you don’t have one, please click on the picture below and buy it while it’s only $15. (Oct 5 is the last day of the sale.)  It will be the best crafting $15 you’ve ever spend and I’ll show you lots of boxes and envelopes you can make with it.

I have a group Pinterest board for demos or anyone who makes Stampin’ Up cards or gifts.  Please follow the group board here and send me an email and let me know you want to post your projects on the group board.  Once you’ve been invited, you can invite your friends or team mates to also post Stampin’ Up projects on the board.  Your Pinterest traffic will greatly increase if you post to group boards.   Also, please click on the “heart” icon and like the cards you like on the board.  This will also increase Pinterest exposure.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Abby and I are going to visit the University of Oklahoma this weekend.  I’m really excited to spend 16 hours in the car with my sweet daughter.  I’ve been thinking of everything I should tell her before she goes to college, since I’ll have a captive audience…  actually, Abby will hopefully have things she wants to talk about and I’ll try to be a good listener.

I was also excited about our trip because I’m a big fan of Pioneer Woman.  She’s a very famous blogger who is opening a Mercantile, deli, and bakery in Oklahoma.  I was so excited to stop by her place on the way, until I found out recently it’s not opening until Oct 31.  I can’t believe I’m going to drive 16 hours and get that close to the Pioneer Woman Mercantile and not get to see it.  I talked to Abby about postponing her college visit, but she insisted cancelling a college visit because of Pioneer Woman was not a valid excuse.  Hopefully one of my friends will join me on road trip to Oklahoma after Oct 31!

Have a great day!

    Love this idea! Especially the open box with the flaps — so many uses! Will you be posting the directions? Hope so! Thank you for sharing!
