Hinged Floral Bottle Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! DSP

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Hinged Floral Bottle Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! DSP

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Hinged Floral Bottle Box Tutorial using Stampin' Up! DSP

Well how cute is this??

I designed it a fair few weeks ago, but was unsure how to decorate it. I didn’t want to have a heavily embellished box as I felt the style was enough decoration, and I’m glad I hung on!

The pretty purply colour on the left uses the new Into the Woods DSP that’s due out in a week or so with the new seasonal catalogue. Isn’t it gorgeous?

But of course, I wanted to do a different version, so I made use of the Timeless Elegance paper which I’m so in love with.

I love the way it opens and closes and love that little figure of eight loop system.

I hope you can make use of this box design, and perhaps you’ll share it with me too!

    I find watching your videos so relaxing and at the same time inspiring me to get moving and create, create, create! Thanks for another beautiful box!

  7. Love love this one Sam, thanks for sharing

  8. Fabulous box, love it, the closure side is so unique, I don’t think you’ve done another box like this one, LOVE IT SAM!!!!!
    Your boxes have been a total hit with my family, they love them as much as the gifts they hold.
    Thank you for another fantastic video.

  9. Sam this is so cute, I love it. The little bottle is perfect for a little treat.

  10. Hi Sam, What a great box and just what a friend has asked me to mAdi x
    ake for her, a small box for necklaces she want to put in charity boxes she puts together.
    you are such an inspiration thanks for all your tutorials keep them coming

  11. You are such a clever, creative person Sam! Great box – thank you!

  12. Hi Sam, I agree with Maria. I’ve been following your videos and haven’t come across such box! Me too… love the unique closure. Got to give it a try!
    All of your photos look well lit. How do you do that? Do you also edit the pictures?

  13. Hi Sam, I liked this box as soon as I saw it (especially the Black/Timeless Elegance version). I have altered the closure slightly – I found it too gappy and flimsy at the front for me – so I added 1/2″ on the short side of the front for 2 ‘flaps’ and it closes much better and is a little sturdier. Your video tutorials have taught me well, thanks Sam x I also made the 4×4 box from a couple of days ago – love it! Though I added an extra layer of DSP to the top (I couldn’t live with all that blank space!?!) and it looks very pretty, I just have to make a matching card to put inside it now. But the great thing about that box is it is so versatile, I am going to make a few more to store little SU supplies and my magnets. Thanks for the inspirational ideas Sam. Best wishes, Karen x

    into a dresxs stzined with your sweat. Neext to your wedding gown,
    your jewelry is one of the most important aspects of your look on your wedding day.
