Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Pretty Box for 3x3 cards... Or for Soaps!

I love pretty boxes! And recently I was wandering around Pinterest and came across a gorgeous visual for a box that was all about using up scraps of DSP for cards etc. I followed the link and came to a blog by a Canadian Demonstrator called Sabrina. I have to make an apology here because I said she was Australian in my video. I’ve absolutely no idea where I got that idea from, but so sorry Sabrina!

Anyway, I loved her idea and at the time of me seeing her post, she didn’t have a tutorial. I set about making my box and when I went back to check my links and who to credit, I discovered she’d done a photographic tutorial!

But anyway, credit to Sabrina here, but I hope you like my version too!

Mine is created using the gorgeous Birthday Bouquet DSP and Suite which I’m totally addicted to right now, and the cutesy cards that I’ve shown in the video will be showcased separately tomorrow, but I hope you get a chance to make a gift box that works for both 3×3″ Cards, and also Hand Made Soaps….

  3. Rachel Brooks says:

    LOVE your boxes and bags. My head would never be able to figure out how to make them, but I’ve watched all your videos and am beginning to get the hang of how I could make one of a special size.

    Happy Easter to you and your family!

    These are such a wonderful little boxes…and great idea…and yes I’m hooked on Pinterest as well…I also look on Pinterest for cooking…but I used it just like you…for inspiration….thanks for sharing…

    Sweet little set of cards, Sam. I love having sets like this handy for “on-the-fly” gift giving. Nicely done!

  6. Poodles, thank you so very much for your videos, I love them. I made a few of these boxes this weekend, so easy, and I also made the taller milk carton type boxes that you put the small jar candles in. We are having a bake sale at work to raise money for someone and I’m making these for a raffle basket. Keep up the great work! It is amazing what you can do with pieces of paper

  7. So pretty! Like the front being decorated better than the bellyband versions I’ve seen. Looks like we could fit in lots more than 3 cards. I’m thinking this would be a fun gift of Christmas gift tags. TFS!
