Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Way Back Wednesday - Pentagonal Treasure Chest Keepsake Box

Morning everyone!

Well I’m very excited to be sharing this project today. I’d sort of forgotten about it until my German demo friend Maria mentioned that she’d made one recently. Well, that was it! I had to make one myself too and I’m very pleased I did!

It’s a lot easier to make than you’d think, and although the paper is from 2-1/2 years ago in the summer of 2013, the switch up to add in the new Botanical Garden DSP and matching Botanical Builders die makes it very ‘now’ doesn’t it!

Black is such an elegant colour, and with the tiny splashes that the flowers make, I love how this new ‘modern’ treasure chest has turned out.

I hope you enjoy my trip down memory lane this week.

  11. Hi Sam,

    I made this box last night, but with a twist. I made it masculine instead of feminine. I had some old wood grain dsp and turned it into a treasure chest, with a brad to open it. I have another idea of turning it into a ( piggy) bank by gluing the lip and cutting a slit in the back portion of the lid. what do you think…Ann
