Botanical Gardens Pretty Box Tutorial – Fits Loads…!!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Botanical Gardens Pretty Box Tutorial - Fits Loads...!! Open

Don’t you just love a box that is so versatile that it fits lots of things???

I have to confess, I didn’t design it to perfectly fit one of our smaller punches, that was luck of the draw and total fluke. It was designing it for the shape and to show off the paper, the rest is a wonderful bi-product!

So this is definitely one for you if you like to gift craft supplies. It fits the punch, but also 2 of our Clear Blocks as well. And 2 of the most popular ones at that!

It also fits half a dozen mini dime bars (the ones you get from ikea!) and 2 tins of Vaseline Lip Balm.

I’m sure you could fit loads more in it, but I was running out of desk space, but that’s quite a lot to be going on with!!!

I hope you have a moment to have a go at making one.

    Hi Sam,
    Love your box. I made it, and I noticed that while you said score on the long side at 4cm, it should be at 5cm.
    Have a nice day,

Speak Your Mind
