Wrapping Gifts With DSP

DSP Present

Happy Monday!

Several weeks ago, I found myself needing to wrap a Christmas gift, but I had not purchased any bows yet and I was house bound with our two year old who was recovering from surgery. What to do?!?

As I pondered this question, I realized I had everything I needed in my craft room. I cut DSP into quarter inch strips, curled them with my bone folder, and stapled them in the middle with my stapler.

I then used my gift box punch board and a 12 x 12 piece of DSP to create the box, added a strip of Coordinating DSP and the curly bow on top, and I was finished. DSP to the rescue!

Stampin’ Supplies:


I don’t know about you, but I always have unused DSP in my craft room, and a reusable gift box and matching curly bow seems like a great way to share it with others instead of hoarding it for myself! (Am I the only one with that problem?)

“…but the righteous gives and does not hold back.” Proverbs 21:26

This giving season, I wish you much love, peace and happiness. Merry Christmas and thanks for stopping by.

Happy stampin’ friends!

  1. I love you’re bow! Would you mind telling me how you made it with you bone folder? Or do you have a video ? I love buying Stampin’up DSP. It’s always so beautiful. I also love the paper packs, I have many of them too. Thank you Michelle.

    • Thanks, Sarah! I just ran my bone folder along the under side of the DSP exactly the way you would with curling ribbon. The more times you run it along the strip of DSP, the curlier it gets. you can then wrap it even tighter with your fingers. It is actually quite easy!

      No video, but that’s a good idea!
