Pootles Advent Countdown #18 Tall Foiled Vellum Milk Carton Tutorial

Ooooo I love vellum! I’ve shared it quite a lot this season, and my passion for it doesn’t seem to be waning any time soon!

Vellum is a tricky chappy to work with. Firstly there’s the adhesive issue, then there’s the potential for cracking when making 3D items. Well today I’m covering the cracking potential, and I promise, I will do a tutorial soon on how to hide adhesive

But isn’t it a great box! I can’t remember now how many foiled chocolate balls I managed to fit in, but for a piece of paper that starts off at just 6×6″, there’s a lot in there!

I do hope you enjoy the video, we’re in the home straights now with just 3 weeks more Advent Countdown projects left…

  1. Hi Sam,
    I don’t know why, but since you are back from travelling, I don’t get your daily email notifications any more? I have subscribed such a long time ago…, it always worked, but now it has stopped completely?

  2. Gorgeous little boxes, they would look amazing hanging from the tree.
    And 14 chocolate balls!!!!! that is just so awesome.
    Thank you for sharing.

  3. These are beautiful Sam!
