Summer Camping Candle Box Tutorial using Christmas Paper

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Summer Camping Candle Box Tutorial using Christmas Paper

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Summer Camping Candle Box Tutorial using Christmas Paper

Oh you so know what I’m like for adding a little touch of irony to my crafting, so when I decided that I wanted to send Mum and Dad and Luke on a camping trip with some anti mosquito citronella candles, it tickled that bit of me that likes irony to use some festive Christmas Paper.

Merry Moments is the DSP that’s in our permanent collection this year, and to be fair, only a couple of sheets are very obviously designed for Christmas, so it wasn’t as hard to do as one might first think…

I like the cute caravan from the Project Life Let’s Get Away stamp set, so that was a bit of a given (Mum and Dad don’t camp in tents anymore, they have a gorgeous new caravan!), and the flash of a different contrasting colour took the paper right away from Christmas and into seasonally now!

    Have a sunny day,

  2. I love this little box, perfect size for this candles, it would make a great gift for teachers or your hair dresser, your mail lady or the ladies at the post office that are always so helpful when I come by with a box full of cards that need to be weighed for postage, they are ever so patient.
    Thank you Sam, this will be a great project to start right now.

    Just Love your Videos Sam Too bad you are so far away from us in Canada. You are my #1 Creater in box making Just love the work you do. How creative you are.
    I love this box for my mini soaps but its a little too small height like .25 inches. Would you be able to give me some dimensions if I need to create a little higher box. Right now my box does close but not all the way.

    Really appreciate your help with you . Again you do amazing work Love your Blogs. Your Canadian Friend
