Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Hand Decorated Box using Touches of Texture

I think this could possibly be my most requested project in recent times! I posted a photo on my Facebook Page and so many asked for the tutorial! So here it is!

I loved making it, even though it’s not my usual style at all! I like how quick it was to ‘paint’ the flowers and how delicate the whole box looks when it’s finished.

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Hand Decorated Box using Touches of Texture Close Up

The box itself is quick and easy to make, how you decorate it is totally up to you! But the new Touches of Texture stamp set really does hit all the right spots for me! A bit grungy, a bit floral, and perfect!

Have a great day everyone, and perhaps you’ll do some painting too!
