Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Faceted Gift Box Tutorial using Everything Eleanor
Oooo, don’t you just love a box that looks reeeeeaaaallllly complicated. But turns out to be rather simple to make?
Yes, me too!!!
As you all know, I was in the US recently and while doing a spot of shopping for the family, I came across a stack of 3 Ghiradelli chocolate faceted gift boxes and just had to buy them. You know, all in the name of research of course (ahem!)
And I know that I’m not the only crafter out there who uses the excuse of deconstruction in order to make an illicit chocolate purchase.
Or am I, and you’re not admitting it. Come on, we’re among friends here… ‘fess up!
Anyway, in the name of research, I carefully brought the boxes home,
ate them all, deconstructed the boxes and mastered the ‘science’ behind how to get them built and then to close properly.
And it’s honestly nowhere near as complicated as you’d perhaps think!
The video will show you far easier than I could possibly explain, so do enjoy it!
