Pull Top Box or Drawer Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! UK Pootles – Pull Top Box or Drawer Tutorial

Stampin' Up! UK Pootles - Pull Top Box or Drawer Tutorial Open

Oooooo it’s a pull top box. Or rather, that’s what it was when I was designing it, and then I put a picture on facebook…. “it’s upside down” were a few comments…. And that totally threw me. I’m thinking ‘what is? the picture, the box, something else?’ So I asked. and a few people said the box was upside down for a drawer….

Well yeah, once I turned it around, I could see a drawer! So as I show you in the video, yes, it is a pull top box, but flipped over, it could also be a drawer….

I did take a long time coming up with these measurements, and it was absolutely a labour of love, but I think it was worth it. Don’t you?!

  1. Hi Sam! Wondering if the pull top box or drawer can be altered to make it into a rectangular box instead. Please advise! Appreciate lots! =)
