Stampin’ Up! UK Long Slender Gift Box Tutorial

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK Long Slender Gift Box Tutorial 2

I love a box that looks stylish and elegant. Some of my boxes are more ‘square’ in shape, but this elongated box ticks all sorts of boxes (ha!) for me!

It’s the sister box to this one here, the Pinch Close Balm Box. Not in terms of paper or design, but in that it’s to hold 3 of the balms that the Pinch Close holds!

And therein lies the reason that it is an unusual finished size… 4 1/2 x 1 5/8 x 1 5/8″ (4 x 4 x 11.5cm)

But It has a good strong sturdy base, particularly designed in this way to hold the 3 balms, as they weigh enough to warrant that stronger bottom!
