POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK Hexagon Tea Light Box Tutorial 2

Only 29 days left of Sale A Bration 2014…

Well who would have thought that you could take a tiny sheet of DSP measuring just 5.75 x 4″ (14.5 x 10cm) and made a box big enough to hold 4 tea lights! I’m not sure I would have had I not been fiddling about one evening just bending paper and seeing what I could come up with.

This did take an awful lot of fine tuning to get it exactly right, while using a minimum of paper, and in fact, you can get 6 of these from one sheet, and if you know me at all, I cannot bear to have excess waste, just for the sake of a half inch, so that’s why it took a lot of tweaking and fiddling!
