Today I’m going to show you how to upcycle containers as ornaments for gift giving ideas using the Stampin’ Up! embellishment containers. In addition to the ornament, I’m providing an idea how to use these containers to hold small gifts.

Those of you that create handmade crafts to sell or if you’re looking for inexpensive gifts for employees, clients or friends, look no farther than your embellishment containers.

I’ve included pictures of today’s project along with a supply list below. Be sure to scroll down to see them.

How to Upcycle Containers – Details

Upcycling brings new life to what would have been a discarded item. If you’re like me, you’ve been saving your embellishment containers thinking someday they would come in handy. And today’s that day!


I used both a circle punch and the Layering Circles Dies to create the layers for this container. Whether creating them to hold a small gift or even as a party favor, this project is quick and easy!

The Perfectly Plaid bundle (stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch) created a detailed image in seconds and no fussy cutting required!


The entire Wrapped in Plaid suite of products (page 13 of the Holiday Catalog) also includes designer paper, jingle bells and this beautiful Shaded Spruce ribbon.
