I was packaging up some gifts for my Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators who achieved a title promotion in November, and at the same time, I was also taking the new Occasions 2019 catalog framelits out of the plastic envelopes and putting them on magnet cards (see this post), and I thought, hmmmmm why don’t I repurpose the plastic envelopes, decorate them, and use them as little gift packets for my team!

As you can see below, I have PLENTY of these empty Stampin’ Up! framelit plastic envelope pouches.  I have kept them all.  I knew someday I’d find the perfect project for them!! 🙂   (I store them on magnet sheets in Avery Elle plastic sleeves now).

Tip to create these packets:  Cut any size strip of designer paper you wish (mine were about 2″ x 5-1/2″) and use Tear & Tape to adhere them to the flap.  The rectangle of DSP will go over the edge of the packet a bit, I used my Paper Snips to trim it.  You could even cover the entire flap!!  

I wrapped new Stampin’ Up! ribbon around the flap after adhering the paper.  I secured the ribbon with a couple of glue dots so that it doesn’t slip off the flap.  I used brand new 2019 Occasions catalog ALL MY LOVE and HOW SWEET IT IS designer paper and all new ribbons, too! You can see them all at the bottom of this post in the product photos.

I used one of my personalized handlettered rubber stamps from Holly at BurnsNestDesigns on a Stitched Shape Oval die cut, then layered each die cut onto a coordinating Layered Oval scallop die cut.  I color coordinated the Epoxy Heart Droplets by coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends markers.

Each gift packet contains some brand new 2019 and some current Stampin’ Up! accessory items, just a small token of celebration for my personal recruits who advance in title!  The little 2-3/4″ square notes were created and printed through Vista Print.
