The Spotty Box + bonus gift!

Stampin’ Up! UK The Spotty Box

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK The Spotty Box +Bonus Customer Gift

Oh it’s a spotty dotty day today! I love our Polka Dot Parade DSP, and I have used it so many times that I can no longer count how many packs I’ve been through!

POOTLES Stampin' Up! UK The Spotty Box +Bonus Customer Gift Stamping Detail

I have a mini bonus gift for my customers for Easter Weekend. I joined at Easter last year (which was in March last year) so for this 4 day weekend only, anyone who places an order of £75 or above (before postage) will receive a pack of this DSP. I will be sending it myself, so it won’t come in your order, and it will be an absolute pleasure to send it alongside the Card and Gift I always send out to everyone who orders, no matter what size their order is!

I love the paper that much, but I think it’s sometimes overlooked in the catalogue, particularly as it’s tucked at the end of the DSP pages, so I want to share it with as many people as possible!

But back to the box, this is an adorable lidded box. I’ve made these a few times before, but in different sizes, and I wanted to show off the DSP, and this for me, was the perfect way to do that!

I hope you like it and do enjoy the video.

    i tried the lid at 11.2 cm x11.2cm but it was smaller than my base at 5.5 inch or 14cm, i used wr memory trimmer

  2. Hi, I had the same problem as Sunita.

    I used all the given measurements but the lid falls into the box instead of over it.
    I used the stampin’up! trimmer and the Martha Stewart scoreboard.
