Stampin’ Up! UK Soap Treat Gift Box with Handle

Big box this week! For an enormously large bar of soap! I’m used to designing boxes for soaps that are 2x3x1 inch or at largest, 3x3x1, but I was asked to create a box, with breathing holes, for a lovely soap maker in the US. Julie Dyer makes soaps and sells them through her website Soapy Bar. And this is a big old bar of soap! It measures 4.5 x 3.75 x 1.25 inches! Wow! Lucky girls in the US to be able to get hold of one of these!

So, I decided to combine a couple of boxes I’ve made before. The Easy Stick Treat Pouch and the original Candle Lantern Box. And this is what I came up with!

Pootles Stampin Up UK Soap Treat Box 2 (2)

I love the Naturals White and Ivory cardstocks, and I’m really loving the new Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate colours, but because Julie is a soaper, and because our Venetian Romance really lends its designs well to the soap market, I had to use the Peacock Swirl design here.

So, enjoy the video, I hope you like the gallery slide-show below too (so many pictures, so little space) and details of products and measurements follow at the bottom of this post!
