Stampin Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Slender box using Blossom Bunch Punch and DSP

I am a relatively frugal crafter. I don’t tend to waste cardstock when I’m making cards and boxes and I have a special pull out drawer for my scraps of cardstock that I use most of all.

So making a box that uses measurements that mean I can get 2 (or more!) from a sheet of paper or card makes me very happy.

These cute boxes which finish up at 1.25 x 1.25 x 5.5″ (3 x 3 x 14cm) use a little under half a sheet of card! Yay, 2 from one sheet of card and then a strip of DSP!

Oh that’s just a winner for me right there!

Super easy to make, I’m actually loving the 2 shades of pink together in the photos – they just work well too don’t they!

Enjoy the video, and the sneaky peek of this month’s thank you gifts flowers! 600 of them are going to make an appearance on the screen!!!

  1. Hi Sam, you always come with great ideas, I also have three boxes for leftovers for different sizes. As you know I will be doing my craft show, thus I have had lots of leftover paper. I give some to the children’s nursery, they have lots of fun stamping an cutting. Thank you for sharing

  9. Very cute box. I love the messy thread, adds just the right touch. I’m wondering to keep it from sinking down in, would it work to leave a tab that folds in rather than cut it off the end of the top? Does that make sense? Or is it difficult to close and tuck that bit in on the ends? Just a thought.
    Thanks for another great video.
