Flat Topped Fat Box Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Flat Topped Fat Box Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Flat Topped Fat Box Tutorial

Don’t you just love a project that starts out as one thing and then becomes another? And that’s what this started out as.  A milk carton. And then it became something else! This!

What do you think?

It’s a great sized box that fits so much stuff. It’s like a little tardis – bigger on the inside!

And with the luscious papers that I’ve taken from the Farmer’s Market DSP are just gorgeous for it too. I can imagine this filled with retro sweeties, or maybe a fat cupcake… Something yummy!

Have a go! Maybe take a different sized milk carton project and follow my directions for the top half.

Anyway, before I forget, tomorrow’s project will be coming out at 9am because it’s the Colour Your World Blog Hop Day!

  1. Hi Sam. Your video is saying to sign in

  2. Sorry Sam, no chance to see the video either, I get this response
    “this video is private”
    Love from Scotland, Nessie

  3. Hi Sam,

    The video doesn’t play for me either. It says it’s “private,”

    Thanks for checking on it. I love watching your videos!

  4. Sally sharp says:

    Hi Sam I can’t watch the video either , was looking forward to watching it x

  5. My apologies everyone, I didn’t schedule the video properly. Should be okay now xx

  6. Now the video is ok!
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Jen Phelps says:

    Will have to try this , looks good xx

  8. What a clever solution to close a “milk carton”! I will make one for my mum immediately!
    I also had problems to watch the video because the whole video didn’t boot up. So I started from the beginning … back to the mail box, again to “view online”, again to the “play button” – and it worked! And the moral of the history? Never give up to watch a Pootles video!! ;-))
    Happy crafting!

  9. Love the size and the flat top!! Thank you!!

  10. Robbye Hamilton says:

    I love this Sam. This may sound really strange, but they remind me of a Christmas village. Makes me feel nostalgic. I can’t wait to try this project.

  11. Wanted to share my version of your box, thanks again, I love it!!

  12. Hello Sam. Je viens de réaliser cette boîte et elle est superbe. Merci pour le partage !!

  13. Hi, how can I join the team ,and have you suppot Australia ?
