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 Shadow Window Box for 4x4 Cards

One of the best things about my ‘job’ is when someone asks me to make a bespoke box or bag for them. I love that I’m allowed to stretch my artistic wings with both the design and the decoration. The only thing I’m tied to is that finished sizing of the box, but that’s it!

So when a friend of mine asked if she could post a box to me that she’d received candle in, I was intrigued! And it proved to be a challenge. Not necessarily because it was difficult, but because it was a case of reworking an existing box, but also because I’d asked Laurie if she wanted me to use anything in particular, and she was quite specific about seeing how the Retro Fresh paper looked in action, particularly the Tangerine Tango paper with tiny diamonds!

Well, I *think* I stepped up to the challenge okay, and while the original box (which held 9 tea lights!) had a rectangular window on the front, this was where I let my little bit of ‘Pootles’ take over, and I made it into a sunken shadow area instead!

I hope Laurie likes it as much as I like the end result, and that you do too!
