Triangle Box using Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pattern DSP

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Triangle Box using Pick a Pattern DSP

Spin it, then Pin it!


Hold the phone everyone, I did fussy cutting. Oh yes I did! Normally I’m a speed girl, but today, I took a bit of time to fussy cut out the adorable bear from the Pieces and Patterns stamp set. Not my finest work, but then, fussy cutting and I have never been friends.

Question though, does anyone know why it’s called ‘Fussy’ cutting rather than just ‘cutting out’?

Anyway, my cute and adorable triangular box would make a great one for children’s parties with little treats and goodies inside for the guests to take home with them. No soggy cake in there, but room for some sweeties and little party blowers.

Or perhaps you could make a pile of them for a baby shower?

Anyway, I hope you like my showcase of the Pick a Pattern Suite. It’s too cute!

    So cute. I think the cutting is very good. I suppose it is called fussy because it is not generally a straight line ……

  2. Lorraine Andrews says:

    An American term, usually applied to quilting, when instead of just cutting fabric into strips or squares regardless of the actual pattern, you pick a flower or emblem from the design and centre that in a shape. Could be a square or a circle or even around the design but the point is you are being ‘fussy’ where you cut your shape from the fabric for sewing into your quilt.

  3. It’s a fun shaped box. I like to fussy cut, although some days my hands just don’t want to cooperate.

  4. Daggi Mosler says:

    It looks great! And for the cutting – I for myself prefare to use a cutter much more than a scissor, at least for small irregular shapes (have done those 3D-cards with many layers of a picture quite a lot in the past – got my training with them! 🙂 ).
    Thanks for this nice bag!

  5. Love this box, perfect for any occasion. I was not a fan of fussy cutting but now, I find it actually relaxing.
    Thank you for yet another fabulous video Sam, it’s always a joy to listen and see you creating.

    Such cute bags, love the papers. I don’t mind cutting, sometimes you have no choice. You did a great job.

  7. Very sweet! I’m one of those people who love to fussy cut, I find it very relaxing. Thanks for another fun video and project.

  8. Love this bag’s design. Your fussy cutting will go much easier with our snips–you might not find it so unappealing a task. Those big scissors are harder to manipulate. Regardless, this an adorable project!

    Love it! The paper with the woodland creatures is perfect. Thanks for sharing!
