Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Soft Pretty Box using Stampin' Up! Blooms & Bliss & Wishes

I absolutely love ‘pretty’ bags and boxes. I mean pretty in the sense that you look at it and think ‘ooo that’s pretty’ rather than ‘that’s clever’ or ‘that’s a great colour’. You know what I mean!!! Just ‘pretty’!

And I reckon the Blooms & Bliss DSP is right up there with the dictionary definition of pretty paper. I’ve used all of the papers, both sides, and am on I think my 5th pack of it. And it’s only been out for 5 months or so!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Soft Pretty Box using Stampin' Up! Blooms & Bliss & Wishes Stamping Detail

I have visions of this box having a delicate silk scarf in it. I have millions of sheer scarves and they’re great because they fold and roll down to almost nothing in size…. yes, I have way more than I probably should, but come on, they’re tiny scraps of gorgeous and barely take up any room!

But no matter what you put into your box, I’m sure the recipient would love a pretty gift.

  1. These are lovely Sam, like you i love the range. I am going to try ‘upscaling’ your box to see if i can roll some of my knitted socks into one of these for christmas presents; the rectangular shape is ideal. Thank you!

  2. Lovely project! TFS!

  3. It is very pretty, and great size too! tfs!

    • Thanks for the positive feedback! It’s great to hear from another fan of these games who enjoyed the sex-body-gender themes.Good point about Serph’s voice being largely absent; that’s a perfect reason to keep Sera as the voice of Seraph.I haven’t looked at any forums or communities for these games, so I thankfully missed the bigoted comments about Seraph. Something tells me these same gamers wouldn’t have been complained in the slightest if Sara’s spirit had been absorbed into Serph’s body and s/he remained fully male, even though that wouldn’t make sense.

  4. Sam I absolutely love your boxes. Please could you do a tutorial on a 4 medium cup cake box. Im always making cakes, but dont know how to make a pretty box. Many thanks

  7. Another clever box. I’m getting quite a collection of your videos and have to decide which ones I’m making for an upcoming event. You aren’t making it easy with so many great options. Thanks for another fun video.
