Stampin' Up UK Papillion Potpourri Winning Box!

Stampin' Up UK Papillon Potpourri Winning Box!

My Stampin' Up leader recently set her team a challenge to design something based on inspiration around our home.

To begin with I was completely stumped and had real crafter's block!

But then I saw a decorative tin on a shelf in my cupboard, it had been there forever, I think it was a Christmas Gift one year with a hot chocolate gift set in it. The base was pure pear pizzaz and lid was bright white.

I started playing around with those colours and the much loved Papillon Potpourri stamp set and the box attached was the result.

I love the way it really show cases the pear pizzaz chevron ribbon. I admit I haven't been too inspired by this ribbon for cards but love it for gift wrap.

I was blown away to find out today that my box had won the competition! A huge thank you to everybody that voted for it (and therefore me!).

If you would like to make your own, I have a short video here:


  1. Wonderful! Please post instructions. I would love to adapt for Christmas gifts.

  2. Beautiful, love the colour and the gorgeous ribbon.
