Swaps CASE: How to deconstruct a box and make up your own using Botanical Butterflies

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really hope you like my project.  I made this little gift bag by CASEing a swap I received at a Pootlers Team weekend. The original swap was made by Chrissy Wilson. I loved the original so I deconstructed the bag and worked out how it was made. I then recreated it in retired DSP and then adapted it so that more could be made from a 12" x 12" piece of DSP. I have a video that shows the whole process.

Measurements and Materials


The original gift bag used a piece of DSP  measuring 6" x 4 1/4"
If I am going to do a lot of these I want to get as many as possible out of a 12" x 12" sheet of DSP so I decided to alter these measurements so that 6 could be cut from each sheet rather than just 4.


  • Botanical Butterfly DSP 6" x 4"
  • Score on the long side @ 1/2" - 1 1/4" - 3 1/4" - 4"
  • Score on the short side @ 3/4" - 3"

Now watch the video tutorial to see how I deconstructed the original box and made my version :-)
