4×4 Traditional Pizza Box Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – 4×4 Traditional Pizza Box Tutorial

Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - 4x4 Traditional Pizza Box Tutorial

Oh goodness, this video was a trial and a half!

Firstly, I wasn’t expecting to be able to film when I did, so I snatched at the opportunity a bit, but without rereading my notes.

Then Fennel leaped on my desk. Restart

She settled herself in the window, but when I started talking again, she proceeded to walk across the desk.

Then the house phone went

Then my mobile started ringing….

It was not pretty!

By the time I completely finished the video, I was almost sweating as it just wasn’t going right, but I am okay with the end result.  At the end of the day, most of us have trials and tribulations, and despite critique recently of my bow making techniques and chattering too much, that’s okay. I don’t mind.  This is who I am, errors, chattering and bow tragedies galore!

I suspect I’m not alone in some of those….

But I do hope you like my purist pizza box.  This is one modelled on a domino’s pizza box, so does have a real pizza box closure too!

Enjoy the video, it will be worth it. I think….

PS, I’ve made the box before in a different size, so I’m snaffling the old photos of the template in there and bringing them in here for you!

    I love your videos and how you make it all fun, but also very easy for me to follow. And I stink at bows, too, so no need to worry. Thanks for all you do.
