Stampin’ Up! UK Adorable Mini Box Tutorial
Oh I love a dinky box! They just make me all girly and happy and young again! I think it’s because it’s miniaturised, and although you’d not find me anywhere near a doll as a girl, my teddy bears did have tea parties quite frequently, and lots of ‘small’ things were to be found in my bedroom.
So when I come across something that’s normally ‘big’ and I find a ‘small’ version, I’m happy. It can be as simple as a mini bottle of shampoo or tiny tub of my favourite salad dressing, but whatever it is, if it’s small I’m happy.
And this dinky box is one of my favourite box styles, but shrunk to make full use of the gorgeous Fresh Prints DSP stack.
When you watch the video, you’ll hear me talk of this being originally designed to hold a Cadbury’s Creme Egg, but as predicted, it’s now past Easter (does Easter Monday count?), and well, it’s past egg giving stage, so what they hey, lets have the box anyway!

And don’t forget my bonus gift this weekend only “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 Polka Dot Parade DSP worth £9.95. 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!”
