Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - 2 boxes from one sheet of Cardstock Tutorial

Oh, so apparently I can’t get off this Big Box kick that I’m on!

For such a long time, I’ve been all about the frugal aspect of crafting, but for the last week or so, I’ve decided to go all out big and make things of considerable size (you wait til you see Friday’s project, that’s a whopper!)

But this is actually 2 boxes, not just one. And the second came about because the frugal side of me couldn’t bear to have a piece of cardstock unused in the project….

I do hope you like the video, it’s a tad longer than normal, but I thoroughly enjoyed the making of this video. Even if my husband rang, then the doorbell went, then Fennel started up meowling right under my desk and it required a fair few restarts to get the filming completed…
