Stampin’ Up! UK Nintendo DS Game Holder Tutorial VIDEO


Well, I managed to time the ‘go live’ of this tutorial to be slap bang on Luke’s birthday, and because this box has been designed specifically for him, that’s only right. Right?!

He’s a boy. He’s 8. He likes computer games, gadgets and all that sort of stuff (do not mention minecraft…) and there will often be a game in amongst his gifts. But you see, a DS game is so blatantly obvious what it is, one or other of his brothers will announce loudly ‘oh look, a DS game’ *rolls eyes*

So, with that in mind, I decided I wanted to make him a box that would be a kind of keepsake box for him too.

And orange is his favourite colour, so I could only use Tangerine Tango couldn’t I!?
