Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Jumbo Ikea Tealight Box 3 Per Sheet of A4 Tutorial
Okay, I’m being very British today in my project. Well I’m not, but I’m working with Industry Standard sized cardstock rather than trying to fit a project onto US sizing.
It has come about because of wanting to get as many boxes from a single sheet of card as possible, but also because someone commented that they didn’t realise we Brits have different size cardstock to everyone else.
Well actually, it’s the whole world that has a standard size, and North America that’s all on it’s own! We all work off one size and you’re all different (pokes out tongue!!!) *Wikipedia quote here – Many paper size standards conventions have existed at different times and in different countries. Today, there is one widespread international ISO standard (including A4, B3, C4, etc.) and a local standard used in North America (including letter, legal, ledger, etc.).*
But I do jest! Yes you guys do have a unique size cardstock and where possible, I do try to work a project so that anyone can make it, but today, well, I just had to work with mine in order to get 3 boxes….
The video explains more, and I do have a little drawing on my grid paper to show you the difference between the 2 cardstock sizes!
I rather love how it’s turned out, small, pretty, and definitely giftable. Even thought I got my yankees and ikeas mixed up!
Hope you make some too!
