4 Boxes from One Sheet of Cardstock

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – 4 Boxes from One Sheet of Cardstock

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - 4 Boxes from One Sheet of Cardstock

I like to think I’m a frugal kind of crafter. Okay, yes there are times when I use a whole sheet of DSP on one project, but there are also times when I use a single sheet of our most inexpensive cardstock and make 4 projects from it. At least I cover all ends of the spectrum!

Today I have a tiny project for you. Yes, you can get 4 of these from a sheet of cardstock, whether International A4 or 8-1/2 x 11″. Either will get you 4 of these boxes and then with a little bit of stamping, a smidge of twine and a punch out, you’re making up a whole load of these with only a little bit of expense.

At the time of making, and even after I’d completed them, I was happy with the baker’s twine on them, but looking at the super close up photos now, I wonder if that was the right stuff to use. They look all wibbly and lopsided. Trust me, you can’t see that or notice it in ‘real life’, but I’m a girl who likes to spot potential errors in her own work….

Anyway, twine aside, I hope you like these little cuties and that you have a bash at making some!
