Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I am so excited to share with you these super duper, Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes! They are a great size for holding notecards and envelopes, or innumerable, small gifts. Mr. Moose said the outside of the box was just as important as the inside, and wanted a prominent position. Follow along to see how all of this took place.
First, I have to tell you about the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. They measure 5 7/8″ X 3 3/4″ X 1″, and are food safe. Mr. Moose has already asked me to fill his box with his favorite twigs. There are 10 boxes in the pack, so I can spare one, don’t you think?
The boxes come scored, and ready to fold, and no glue is required; they just fit together. Isn’t that fantastic?
Decorating the box is fun too, and reminded me of my grandmother’s beautifully wrapped packages. She would wrap just the lid in Christmas paper, so the boxes could be used year after year. I loved seeing the familiar boxes under our Christmas tree. This box was “wrapped” in the same fashion. The gingham paper is Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper, cut in five pieces: top-5 1/2″ X 3 3/4″, long sides-5 1/2″ X 1″, short sides-3 3/4″ X 1″. They were easily glued to the box with Tombow.
Mr. Moose is so cute, made with the Moose Punch, Copper Foil, and the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. I layered him on cardstock before placing him on Dimensionals, because he wanted to “stand out.”
His next request was soft pine limbs to walk on, which I found in the Sound Of The Seasons Die Set, and cut from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. But, he explained that he’s too tall to eat from the ground, so he needed trees where he could reach their tasty limbs. The trees are from the Pine Woods Die Set, cut from Mossy Meadow Cardstock.
Mr. Moose thinks surprises are important, so he wanted me to say,”No peeking until Christmas,” which I found in the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. It’s stamped it in Real Red Ink, cut with an Ornate Frames Die, and attached to a tree limb.
For extra security, he said I should tie some Real Red Braided Linen Trim around the end of the box. Although, it’s easy to slip off the side, I like the added touch.
Thanks so much for hopping by! Mr. Moose and I hope you enjoyed seeing our decorated Mini Paper Pumpkin Box. All of the supplies are in my Product List below.

I’m sorry, I thought everyone was decorating Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. But, I LOVE EVERYTHING everyone did! I love it all! I just got my boxes and hadn’t even opened them yet. But, I’m still excited. I’ll just make tags to put in them, to use as unique gifts. Thanks everyone!
You always make me smile, with creative narrations of your projects. It makes it so much fun to read. Thank you for introducing us to Rocky Raccoon, and Mr. Moose. I love them both! The funny thing is, I just got these boxes in, and had NO idea what I was going to do with these. Now, I’ll have 24 ideas. Time to order more boxes.
Mr. Moose guided you into making a beautiful project and I love that it brought back memories of your grandmother.
The Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes are great for gift giving. Love the cute moose story and your directions for recreating. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
Love the mini paper pumpkin boxes and yours is a great idea! THanks for sharing how you decorate and love the idea of reusing year after year. Many a boxes in our family show up again. It’s always fun to see who gets it next!
Beautiful gift box! Even an empty one would be a great gift (not that anyone would give an empty box, but it is that nice).
Thanks Sue! Your empty box idea made me laugh!
If I was not going to be able to get to the store to put candy in my boxes to give to co-workers, I was just going to give them the box empty. Then that person can put something in it and re-gift it. I was giving 2 gifts; one mini pizza box and the other mini treat bag that I made using cardstock and embellishments.
Great holiday gift box, Su! I don’t have these pizza boxes yet but you have really shown us all that they are fun to decorate!
Thanks, Debbie! You’ll want these Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes; they are much larger than the pizza boxes.
Cute box Su! I think it is great that Mr Moose helps you with such brilliant designs.
Thank you, Melissa! Mr. Moose appreciates your nice comment!
Great Idea….I have a bunch of those boxes!Liz
Thanks, Liz! Your ladies will love this box!
Su, your moose is adorable and he is also very smart. This is a great quick gift.
Mr. Moose is delighted with your comment! Thank you, Debbie!
Great fun to see how others put their own stamp on life!
Thank you, Deb!
Love your rustic gift box! Love how you show your steps to creating it!
Thank you, Stesha! Glad you liked my steps!
This moose box is adorable! And so easy to make your own. I will be using this idea soon! Thank you!
Thanks, Jackie! I love these, sturdy boxes!
