It’s time for a DOUBLE FEATURE video ~ I’ve got the sweetest pop-up birthday card & gift box ever!

Don’t you love it when you get not just one project but two?! I was just giddy after I finished these creations because they were so simple yet look so complicated. The Stampin’ Up! Birthday Goodness stamp set was yearning to get inky and this is what I came up with – a pop-up birthday card and a coordinating gift box. The box is perfect as a donut birthday gift box.


I made Mr. Awesome drive me to Hurt’s Donuts last night so I could find a pretty yeast donut with pink frosting and sprinkles. I was so tickled that even at 8:30 at night they had just what I needed (and they had a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup chocolate donut that looked lonely so I took it home too).

The box uses the label that was die cut from the card. Just a little ribbon, a die cut sentiment and a birthday candle and suddenly I have a donut gift box to go with my card!


  • Lovely Lipstick – the die cut from the card plus a die cut heart
  • Whisper White – Scrap approx 2 ½” x 2 ½” 
  • Cardstock (any color) – 4 ¼” x 4 ¼” 
  • Aluminum Foil – Approx 6″ x 6″ 
  • Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon – 16″

I was looking at the individual donut stamp and thought, “Hmm, I wonder if the circle die in the Stitched Labels would work?” Guess what?! THEY DID! I die cut the donuts and added them to a fun tag. So simple!


  • Lovely Lipstick – 2″ x 5 ½” 
  • Whisper White – 1 ¾” x 5 ¼” and 1 ¼” x 4 ¼” 
  • Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon – 8″ and 4″

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?” –Matt Groening

Gotta love that quote today. Donuts… oh how I love them! My hips and thighs? Not so much. 😆 

I loved sharing today’s Double Feature and I hope you enjoyed watching. If you did, leave me a comment! I love to hearing from you! I will be sitting over her in a corner, hiding, eating this donut before anyone discovers it’s here.

I will be back with a new video for you on Saturday and I look forward to sharing with you then!
