Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Tall Slender 2, 4, 6, 8 Box Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Tall Slender 2, 4, 6, 8 Box Tutorial

Oooo, so last week I took part in a Global Blog Hop and me being me, I created a box to show off the new Spring Summer goodies. That prompted a number of you asking if I’d show a tutorial of the box, and as promised, here it is!

Now I love to throw in a little twist now and again and it tickled me that I was showing a Spring project right before Christmas, so I decided to take Christmas paper and show it off as something different…. Yea, that’s how my brain works…. But I think it’s pretty cute!

    Hello Sam,
    I love your videos, I make soap also and I made a small box to put a slice of soap in it for a girl who comes by my crossing. I am a school crossing guard at the elementary school behind my house. Her mother teaches at the school so she walks from her bus stop to the school to catch a ride home with her mother. I will be making another box for her mother’s gifts that I am making for her. Please keep posting videos, I love your accent.

    Absolutely love this box. I can’t wait to make one!
    In regards to wasting card stock – I know it has happened to me! Math has never been my strong suite and I tell you, I can write it down, watch a video and still mess it up! I am a very visual learner so the videos help tremendously. Keep doing what you are doing! You make fantastic, easy to watch ~ easy to follow videos and I so appreciate it.

  3. Ouch! I felt that when u got your finger in your crop a dile. Love your box it’s so cute xx.

    Your videos make my day. The box is delightful. You definitely have an engineer’s mind. Great job

  5. I love your non-Christmasy Christmas version

  6. I love your non-Christmasy Christmas version. And I’ve done that to my own fingers often enough so I had sympathy pains when I watched the video!

  7. What a beautiful box! I imagine filling it with some tea, sugar stirrers and single wrapped Highlander biscuits (as they are really small and should fit in!) or some chocolate… Something nice to take with you when invited just for a cup of coffee/tea.
    I will definitely give it a try.
    I still can’t get your emails anymore… Phoned talktalk – unfortunately they were not really helpful.
    Thanks for your letter and thanks to your Mum and Dad for producing so wonderful cards.
    Greetings from Scotland,

    Good Morning Sam,
    I made the box while watching tutorial plus afterwards I decrease the height for my votive candles for gifts, etc. I make all my craft paper projects on scraps of copy paper from my relative office. Then I use cheap scrapbook or cardstock paper on clearance that I don’t like…smiles.. particular 12×12 for larger projects. Then I make projects again to make sure I have it correct. I know it is time consuming, but I want my projects to be right especially when given as a gift or I am selling for craft fairs and such. However either one I make it once before I actually make the project.
    I appreciate all your tutorials and comments. Such a pleasant voice. And your South Hills Design Jewelry are just gorgeous.

    Thank so much love,

  9. This box is so cute! I love to watch your videos. You have such a calm, soothing voice!

    This box is so cute when you make several and put them on a tiered candle holder. They look like candles.
