Jack and Luke’s box, revisited to include Metric…

Pootles Stampin Up UK Sloping Sided Gift Treat Box 2

 

When I first filmed the tutorial (here) on these boxes that my elder 2 sons designed, I was only working in either Metric, OR Imperial. I wasn’t giving both sets of dimensions.

It was not long after this that I realised it was a lot faster to work out both in advance, particularly as you lovely lot who support me here and on YouTube are scattered across the globe and some of you prefer Imperial and others prefer Metric.

The revisiting of this project also kind of came about because my middle two sons share a bedroom, and Jacob was, understandably, a bit put out that he didn’t have a special box with a J on it, so he too could hide moshi monsters, go gos and coins!

So, almost 5 months to the day after the first airing of this video, here it is again, with boxes made for Jacob and Oliver this time, and including both the Metric and Imperial dimensions!

I hope you like it now as much as previously!
