Pootles Advent Coundown #2 Double Pinch Close Box Tutorial


Well those of you who follow my blog and tutorials regularly will know that my brain works in mysterious ways. So mysterious that half the time I’m not sure what’s going on, and today’s project is a classic example of that…

I was working on the project that came out a couple of days ago, and when I was fiddling with the closure, I ended up with this! How cool?!


Pootles Advent Coundown #2 Double Pinch Close Box Tutorial Side Profile


I kept the dimensions exactly the same, I just closed it differently.

It’s not too shabby huh?!

I won’t go into huge amounts of detail about the build here other than it needs just one piece of adhesive, and no cutting whatsoever….

Enjoy the video, it’s worth it!

  1. Very nice tutorial, I was beginning to wonder if you had tutorials because I could not find any. You do such great work if only you could go a little slower.
    Great work though…
