Pootles’ Beehive Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! DSP

Pootles' Beehive Box Tutorial using Stampin' Up! DSP


Oh I am so excited about how this box has turned out!

I created a prototype of it months ago, but never quite got around to deciding what DSP to use on it. I guess I must have somehow known in advance that Stampin’ Up! were going to be bringing out the ideal papers in the form of Bees!

The look of that paper is just perfect on these, and while there is little else going on in the decoration, I don’t think it needs anything more does it?

Pootles' Beehive Box Tutorial using Stampin' Up! DSP Overhead

Modeled on a Burts Bees box, I can’t take credit for the shape or design of it, but I hope you like that I’ve turned their box into an easily(ish!) repeatable box!

I hope you enjoy the chattery video, and forgive that I took a photograph of the one side with wonky paper….

    I made a box with the other type of opening you mentioned once for a baby toy that had a cylindrical shape. When you roll it, it goes so far then returns to you! It was the perfect shape for it. I added a tag using the old Teddy and Train set! Really miss Bashful Blue. Stamped it with old Polka Dot BG Stamp. I’ll send you a picture!

  11. Hi Pootles, I was so inspired by your Beehive box, I created a lantern for a recent shoebox swap. I gave you credit and a link on my blog and I wanted to let you know! I hope you don’t mind. Have a great day!

  12. Hi Pootles, I love your Beehive Box and was inspired to create my Lighthearted Leaves Lantern and here is a copy of my blog post giving you credit for the inspiration. Just wanted to say thanks!
