Stampin’ Up! UK Secret Closure Gift Treat Soap Box VIDEO

Stampin' Up! UK Secret Closure Gift Treat Soap Box 3I love gift boxes, but I also love puzzles and combining the two made perfect sense to me!

I was originally designing a box that would hold A6 cards and envelopes, and when I’d finished the prototype with it’s pulley system of closure, I decided that this would make an ideal miniature version for holding 3×3 cards and envelopes, or little gifts and treats.

So here’s the video, you do need to watch it to get the gist of the stitching involved, but the basic box is very simple, and you could even put a belly band on it to keep it shut, or a couple of brads.

I just like the pulley system…!


The completed box has dimensions of 3.5 x 3.5 x 1 inch and needs the following cardstock and dimensions!

Cardstock measures 9.5 x 5.5 inches

score along longer length at 2,3,6.5 and 7.5 inches

score along shorter side at 1 and 4.5

Makes for a delightful box, and my children have already asked that I make ‘manly’ versions for them!
