Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pagoda Top Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Pagoda Top Box Tutorial using Stampin' Up! Supplies

Ooooo I’m a happy girl to be sharing this project with you all! I was asked quite a lot over Christmas if I had a box that was 2.5″ cubed, but I genuinely couldn’t think of one. So I decided that I would make a requested box, as requested by a lot of you!

See, I do always listen!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Pagoda Top Box Tutorial using Stampin' Up! Supplies Wisteria Wonder

I wanted to make it a little different at the top to make it more than ‘just a box’, hence the pagoda style top to it!

It’s so easy to make, you know what I’m like. If I can keep a video to 12 minutes, then I’m happy. I know your time is precious, and I know that many of you like to watch and make straight away, so we are going for super easy today!

I hope you like it, and that you like that I brought out the DSP background stacks for a change. It’s so easy to lose sight of our core staples when there are so many pretties out there!

    I love the top on the box but I like to make the box with you (lots of use of the pause button!), but there were no measurements to follow! Please bring the sizes back under the tutorial.

    Thank you! I will now abandon housework and make a box. Jen x

  4. Oh lovely!

  5. You are a clever bunny Sam. Thanks for this size box and I do like the top. One more “Sam” creation to add to the list to do. 🙂

  6. Hi Sam would this box fit a creme egg in it? X
