Pootles' Way Back Wednesday 2 x 2 x 2 Fold Flat Box

Oh I am so loving today’s project! I’ve gone back 3 years, almost to the day, to August 2013 when I made a 2″ (5cm) cube box that folds flat. This was, I think, one of my first fold flat boxes and I’ve made all sorts of different sizes since!

Back then I used colours that I found challenging. I still find oranges a struggle to work with, but the gorgeous Melon Mambo is definitely one of my staples now!

So on with the show, and my question for you today is….. what colours would you put with black and vanilla if you weren’t going to use Emerald Envy or Flirty Flamingo??

Pootles' Way Back Wednesday 2 x 2 x 2 Fold Flat Box flattened!

I loved using those 2 colours. The Playful Palette is a real marmite paper pack (waits for overseas folk to ask what marmite is) and I have to admit, it was one that I was very unsure of at first. I think it’s that kind of paper pack where the sum of the parts are greater than the whole. Each sheet has it’s own glory, but when you put them all together, they do jar a little on the eyes!

So I hope you like what I’ve done, taking these 2 relatively plain patterns and jazzing them up!

Have a fabulous Wednesday everyone!

    Hi Sam love your videos. Can you help I bought a punch board from stampin up to make the bags. I have had it for a year and still cannot get my head around it. Have you done a video on how to use it. Also can you make anything else with it?

    Hi Sam, you will be pleased to know that there are very many of us here in Australia that do know what marmite is. Believe it or not , it is even sold here. LOL. Love your way back Wednesday video projects.

  3. To answer your question – I would consider using Tip Top Taupe with the black and vanilla – and then using DSP from the Go Wild paper pack – I’ve used that pack for more masculine cards, as well as pairing it with brighter colors/flowers for my girlie-friends. And – even though I am from the mid-west in the U.S., I do know what marmite is – but probably only because I lived two years in Hong Kong, and had a roommate from Australia. I enjoy your videos immensely – thanx for sharing your creativity with the rest of us.

  4. Love the cube boxes. They are pretty done in the black papers, and I think any color would look great with them.

  5. How much does shipping cost? I am purchasing a spool of ribbon from clearance which is about £3, but don’t want to be paying more shipping than the value of the product!

  6. You are definitely the queen of boxes! I really love this, like you said, they can be made ahead and have them on hand. Will have to make a few. Thanks for another wonderful video.
