2 Pen Gift Box Tutorial AND GIVEAWAY!

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – 2 Pen Gift Box Tutorial AND GIVEAWAY!


Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - 2 Pen Gift Box Tutorial AND GIVEAWAY! Close Up


Don’t forget, my blog moves next week, so if you don’t follow me by email, you may not come across.  The link’s just there on the right, hit it now!

Oooo this was not the project that I had in mind when I first started scoring lines and bending bits of cardstock.  The original idea was actually going to be a box for Curly Wurlys. But then I ate them. So that put paid to that particular idea (I know, I’m a bad demo for eating the samples, but I will be bringing a curly wurly project to you soon. Assuming I don’t eat them too…)

But I loved the idea of the box, and then I happened to glance to my left and saw my brand new Stampin’ Dazzle Markers and decided they were beautiful enough to gift away and that’s where the project has sparked from.


All you need to do is leave me a comment at the bottom, and you’re in with a chance of winning!  I am happy to send this anywhere in the world, so don’t let geography stand in your way!

Oh, and if you could give me a little shout out on your social media platform of choice, that would be rather fabulous too thanks (twitter, my handle is @SamPootles!)

Giveaway closes next Sunday night

Anyway, back to the project, it’s rather dinky and darling, uses minimal cardstock, and whacks out powerful impact!

Also while I remember, many of you have asked in the past where the Treat Bags come from that I use. The answer is…. ME! (or an SU rep in your country!)

Hope you enjoy the video, and the very best of luck!
