Need a really last minute gift? Wrap something ordinary, like a plain soap / lotion dispenser, in decorative paper and add a few embellishments, and you have a lovely and sensible gift that anyone can use. I used Dashing Along Designer Series Paper to wrap the dispenser. I used a new punch from the 2019 Occasions catalog (Bitty Blooms Punch Pack sneak peek!) for the little flowers around the top. The bow on the tag is from the Bring on the Presents bundle.

Here’s what I made:

soap / lotion dispenser decorated with Dashing Along paper and Bitty Blooms Punch Pack by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 10″ x 4-1/2″

Stamped with the Bring on the Presents stamp set:

  • bow and ribbon ends in Shaded Spruce ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock (CS)

Die cut using the All the Presents Thinlits:

  • bow and ribbon ends
  • tags from a scrap of Shaded Spruce CS and a scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS

Cut using a punch from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack:

  • 20 flowers from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS

Cut using the 1/8″ Circle Punch:

  • 20 pieces from a scrap of Crushed Curry CS

Assembled the card:

  • DSP adhered to the dispenser with Tear & Tape
  • Crushed Curry dots glued onto the Cherry Cobbler flowers
  • Cherry Cobbler flowers glued onto the top edge of the DSP
  • bow glued onto the Cherry Cobbler tag
  • both tags strung onto a piece of Shaded Spruce ribbon and tied onto the dispenser

Here’s the Year-End Closeout! 

The Year-End Closeout has officially begun! During this promotion, you will be able to save on a selection of retiring and surplus items—while supplies last. Definitely place your orders sooner rather than later, because supplies are limited and the Year-End Closeout ends on January 2. After that, some of your favorite retiring items may be gone for good!
