Stampin’ Up! UK Mini Treat Gift Box Tutorial VIDEO

Once you have a design for a box, it’s quite simple to change the measurements to fit a different gift.

When Debbie from Soaps and Scented mentioned that she has soaps that measure 3 x 2 x 1 inch, it was too much for this crafter to resist altering a design.

So, taking a box design I’d previously made, but on a bigger scale and with different proportions, I set about seeing if this was still a workable model.

And it is!

So while my original box was of ‘landscape’ orientation, because Debbie’s soaps are of a ‘portrait’ orientation, it meant the box had to ‘work’ in a different way and the measurements needed to be adjusted.

With a little work, I was able to make the measurements fit so well that actually, you can get 2 of these boxes from one sheet of A4 cardstock, and still have a little left over!
