Stampin’ Up! Kindest Gnomes 3D Treat Holder

This box of Junior Mints is wrapped with Stampin' Up!'s Storybook Gnomes DSP. The gnome and the mushroom have been die cut with the Gnomes Dies.

The Kindest Gnomes Bundle and coordinating Designer Series Paper made this project easy, fun, and super fast. I love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates their supplies. From start to finish, this project took less than 15 minutes.

I just happen to have a box of Junior Mints in my “stash”. I instantly thought of the Kindest Gnomes to decorate the box and make it look much more attractive than the plain box the mints come in.

I had created a box to cover a different size of Junior Mints back in the springtime. I used the Easter Friends (retired) stamp set and the Daffodil DSP. Super cute and easy to do!

Easter Friends 3D Treat Holder

3D Treat Holder

I always start with a piece of computer paper (used). Measure the length of the box; cut my paper to that length. Then I measure the width of the box and multiply by 2; measure the side of the box and multiply that by 2. Then I add the 2 measurements together and add a couple of inches for the paper to overlap in the back. Then I cut my computer paper to those measurements and gently wrap it around the box. Adjust as needed.
