Pootles 6×6 Week #7 Fold Over Box Tutorial

Pootles 6×6 Week #7 Fold Over Box Tutorial

Pootles 6x6 Week #7 Fold Over Box Tutorial Open

Well how was 6×6 Week for you? Did you find some new ideas for using those adorable papers that Stampin’ Up! have released?

I had to finish with a cute and unusual project (okay, they’ve all been cute and unusual…), but this was one that came to me in a flash of inspiration!

I’ve not made a tall fold over box before, or rather, not one that’s shaped like this, and so I had to make a miniaturised version. I’m sure I’ll do a larger one at some point in the future though.

    Thank you for the great 6×6 ideas. Can the Week 7 box be made to fit A2 cards?

  18. Katrina Evans says:

    This is my favourite. I love this box. There have been some papers that when I’ve looked at them in the pack, flat, they haven’t really appealed to me but when you have used them and I have seen them in 3D they have looked beautiful or cute or sometimes stunning.
