Boxes are so much fun to make and you can customise them for just the right gift.  I love discovering new ones to try and this little cutie was taught by Danille Daws at Ustamp.  I love that it wraps around itself, eliminating the need for wraping paper!

It is called a Clamshell Box and is so easy to make! I have used Velcro dots to close this one, but you could use magnetic domes or ribbon to really fress it up.

Ustamp with Dawn and Friends has so many wonderful tutorials to try.  Forty, to be exact, from designers all around the world.  Early Bird registration is now open, so why not join us for the next round?  Click HERE to sign up today!


  1. Stunning little box. I've never seen a clamshell design before.

  2. Ohhh I like this design a lot! And love the colours you have used Paula :-)

  3. This is lovely Paula and yes, perfect to use in lieu of wrapping paper.

  4. This is delicious, Paula. Love how you've used Birthday Bakery on it - I wouldn't have thought of that. xxoo

  5. I love your watercolouring and the way you have used the Birthday Bakery stamp is a great idea. That clamshell project from UStamp is great.

  6. Love your stamped & coloured Bakery image Paula. The richness of the Cajun is gorgeous with the neutrals. Clever box design too - perfect for a nice big cupcake. :)
