POOTLES Stampin Up UK SPRINGWATCH Pinch Closure Mini Balm Box Tutorial


14 days of back to back video tutorials, showcasing the stunning new products from both the Spring Catalogue, but also the Sale a Bration free products too!

It is also in conjunction with the Online Class that I’m doing with Angie from Chic n Scratch, and the two will work hand in hand together. Details for the Class are here!

POOTLES Stampin Up UK SPRINGWATCH Pinch Closure Mini Balm Box Tutorial 2

I love it when I’m asked for a bespoke box design, and when a friend asked me to design 4 boxes for her, I couldn’t say no!

This one is such an adorable size, the finished measurements are 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 ” (4x4x4cm) and while they’re bespoke for her product, they’re great for quite a few things. Sweets, Candy (!), Treats. Even tiny teddy bears would fit nicely inside!

And while I remember, you can get 2 from one sheet of cardstock, whether it’s A4 or international Foolscap size!

Anyway, it’s quite a simple build, but has an unusual closure. And as I mention in the video, I know that sometimes I seal my boxes closed, this one is a non-destroy-to-get-in type!

Please do enjoy it, and of course, if you’d like to watch the video via youtube, please click HERE
