Pootles Advent Countdown #6 Gorgeous Hanging Gift Tutorial

Tee hee! I do love to tease you and in Wednesday’s video, I promised a variation on a theme. And here it is!

I have the most fun when I’m experimenting and when I was designing the box for the Washi Tape, it was a case of fold this way, then that and tra la! I ended up with a sort of heart shape!

I even shared it on my business page and into my facebook group and it got some love! So I decided to go for it!

A little switch up in measurements and this is an easy project to make, despite it looking complicated. But then you know me, I don’t do complicated…!
