Slender Box Tutorial for 4×4 Cards using Bohemian DSP

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Slender Box Tutorial for 4×4 Cards using Bohemian DSP

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Slender Box Tutorial for 4x4 Cards using Bohemian DSP

When I make and design boxes, there’s often a reason behind them. Sometimes to put treats inside, other times to house a particular lip or skincare product. Perhaps a few candles etc. But when I made a 4×4″ card recently, a few people asked me if I could make a box for that size of card.

So I did!

I didn’t actually get around to making a card to go inside it, but you get the point of the box….!

The actual finished dimensions are 4.5 x 4.5 x 0.5″ (11.5 x 11.5 x 1.5cm) so more than a card could slip in there…

And I decided to keep it simple, with a wide strip of DSP and those lovely layers of the matching cardstock. Pretty and elegant is the thought that springs to my mind!

I hope you like the project and video!

    I love this little box. I’m thinking they would be great for a few cards with envelopes made with the new envelope paper and made to be winter theme thank you notes. A great gift to hand someone at holiday time, maybe with a chocolate attached.

  3. Gorgeous!!! I love this little box, so simple, yet so pretty! Love the colours, and DSP – I will have to make some of these. Thanks Sam for another great idea! x
