P-p-p-p-p-pick up a penguin stamp!

This cute little project is a 3D package – you could use it for a Post-It note holder or to send small gifts. There are jelly beans inside this one – yum! (Although there were some exceedingly unpleasant coffee-flavoured ones in this batch, which made eating them a bit of a Russian Roulette-type situation.)

You could also use the same design for a small square card – the possibilities are… well, they’re not endless but there are a lot of possibilities, trust me!

I stamped the flowers along the bottom in Versamark® - I just guessed for placement and it turned out okay. Phew. But I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig® to position the flower and the penguin.
