POOTLES Stampin’ Up! UK Sale a Bration Dinky Boxes – Sweet Sorbet Showcase Tutorial!

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK Sale a Bration Dinky Boxes - Sweet Sorbet Showcase Tutorial! 2

I love the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, and as yet, haven’t showcased all of the sheets together in one project. So last week, while Jack was still off sick (and before I got ill!), we played around with the papers to see what we could come up with. Between him and me, we decided that I needed to do a video making just one box, but showcasing all of the colours and just how quick they are to make, but more importantly (as he’s as frugally minded as I am!) we determined you could 48 of these boxes from one pack of designer series paper, but because this is the Sale a Bration paper….

48 boxes for FREE!

Okay, so there are a few embellishments too, but we (he was very much a part of this project!) decided to use scraps and bits where possible, and of course, the punch had to be a free product also, the Banner Punch!

So other than the bits of ribbon and buttons and card scraps, this is essentially a free box!

Love IT!

  1. Sam,
    Another fabulous project! As always your instructions are clear and the end project has a real Wow Factor! I really appreciate all that you share with us.

    With the smallest amount of tweaking I made this box in a perfect size to hold an aromatherapy roll-on perfume that I created. It’s only slightly bigger than a common chapstick and it fits in perfectly.

    Thanks again.
