HOLLY JOLLY STAMP CAMP, Christmas Penguin Box...

Project #2 from my Holly Jolly Stamp Camp is this adorable little Penguin box!  I knew I had to do a penguin project as both my girls love penguins especially Colleen.  After trying out a few different ideas, we ended up going with this one.  However, Jenni and I had a difference of opinion on whether to have the penguin wearing "earmuffs" or not.  I gave people the choice to do them or not, but I still love the earmuffs, Jen!  I would like it if the handle/earmuff band were not as high, but I wanted to be sure you could get treats in and out easily.

Jen named him "Private" after one of the Madagascar penguins.  It suits him, so Private Christmas it is!   :)

This little box uses the Fancy Favor Die, which is one of my FAVORITES!  It is such a useful little box!  It can be adapted for so many different holiday characters and themes.  I hope you enjoy this little guy!

Here is Jen's preference:

  • Card Stock – Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black
  • Ink – Tangerine Tango Classic, White Signo Gel Pen
  • Punches – 1-3/4" Scallop Circle (#119854, $16.95), 1-3/8" x 5/8" (Small) Oval (#119863, $15.95), 2" x 1-3/8" (Wide) Oval (#119859, $16.95), 1/2" Circle (#119869, $5.95), Two-Step Owl (#118074, $16.95)
  • Ribbon – Silver Tinsel Trim (#120994, $7.95), Real Red 3/4" Polka-Dot Grosgrain (#115608, $1.99 on the Clearance Rack)
  • Accessories – Deck the Halls Big Designer Buttons (#121002, $8.95), Sticky Strip (#104294, $6.95),
  • Tools – Big Shot, Fancy Favor Die (#115965, $39.95), Ovals Die (#114525, $15.95), Paper Piercer & Mat, Sponge Daubers


  1. both are very cute but I have to say I think the earmuffs "finish" it.
    There are sooooo many items I have checked off in the catalog and I wanted a lot from the christmas mini catalog....alas, the loss of hubby's job means I can't go shopping :(

  2. I also love penguins, I have collected over 150! I just love this! I don't have the Fancy Favor die, but now I will HAVE to get it!!


Thank you for blessing me with your comments! I truly appreciate each and every one. Have a fabulous day!
