Penguin Favor

by Laura Mellinger

Use a rounded tag to make this cute penguin treat box.


  • Cardstock in black, white, red and orange (Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red & Pumpkin Pie cardstock used here)
  • Rounded tag punch or nesting dies (Note Tag punch or other, Word Window & 1/4" Square punches
  • Paper trimmer
  • 6" ribbon (Stampin’ Up Real Red used here)
  • Strong adhesive
  • Glue Dots
  • Detail scissors
  • Bone folder
  • Googly eyes
  • Black Candy Dots


  1. Step 1

    Cut black cardstock measuring 6 1/4" x 3".

    Score on short side at 1 1/2" and on long side at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2" and 6". Keep the tab on the top, but cut off below the score line. Cut up to the score lines on the bottom row.

  2. Step 2

    Use strong adhesive on tabs and assemble the box.

  3. Step 3

    Punch or die cut 2 rounded tags from black cardstock, approximately 1 1/2" wide.

    For the sample, Stampin’ Up!’s Note Tag Punch was used.

  4. Step 4

    Punch or cut a white tag.

    If using the Note Tag punch, trim off the sides as shown. If using nesting dies, use the next smaller die.

  5. Step 5

    Adhere the white piece to one of the black tags, creating an even border around the edge. Trim the excess off the bottom if necessary.

  6. Step 6

    Punch or cut out a 1/4" square from a scrap of orange cardstock. Fold across from corner to corner.

  7. Step 7

    Make two earmuffs for the penguin using a small oval punch or die, or the Word Window punch as shown.

  8. Step 8

    Wrap ribbon around the tag for a scarf, and secure it with a Glue Dot. Adhere ear muffs, googly eyes and beak above the ribbon. Add 2 Black Candy Dots for buttons under the ribbon (buttons, brads, or punched circles would also work).

  9. Step 9

    Complete the project and tuck a treat inside.

I don't have that punch, but I will figure something out because this is too cute!

Thank you Muscrat:) You could use nesting Tag Dies if you have them or maybe Oval Dies and straighten up the sides using a paper trimmer:)

this is so cute and I can see children flipping out over them. I have a 3 yr old grand daughter I don't get to see often and this is going in her pkg for Christmas when I mail it. Thank you so much for sharing.
