Making big boxes is something that I love to do, but I don’t often have ‘things’ to go inside them. I like to design a box for you all that has an actual purpose, but during SpringWatch many people told me that the boxes I’d made for one thing could be used for a number of other things. I do love a multipurpose box! So today I have a large box that is large, just because. Just because I fancied making one. Just because I wanted to showcase Blooms & Wishes. Just because it’s fun!

I reckon you could get a bag of sweeties in there, the ones you buy off a hanger in the shop. Or maybe a pretty silky scarf. Maybe some pampering treats?

But whatever you put inside, a large handmade box is a gift in itself! I know that Mum for a long time, would keep all the boxes I made her. Not so much now, there’d be box overload, but we love to gift and people love to keep!

So this huge box is a lovely one to make and with Blooms & Bliss paper with Blooms & Wishes stamp set, you can’t go wrong! And how about that triangular peak on the top? I love that little extra bit of detail!

Have a great Wednesday!

  4. As always, I enjoyed the project. It’s unbelievable!! . . . I thought you had used DSP for the panels and then I saw you had stamped them . . . the same as the pattern . . . amazing Sam!!!
    There is a little “typo” in the measurements: “MARK on the long side . . . should read 9 7/8 and not 9 7/5.
