Pinched Lidded Box Using Petal Garden

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pinched Lidded Box Using Petal Garden

It’s so pretty!!! I adore the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stacks, and while Calypso Coral and I aren’t the closest of friends, this paper is making me like her a little bit more…

I think the sharp contrast of Pear Pizzazz on the coral box makes a huge difference, and takes some of that sharp bitter coral down a little. (this is totally making sense in my head. Does it make sense to you?)

However the divine Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry combination give you a totally different result. Softer and more elegant I think. But just as lovely!


I rather like how this box came out, I was working along the lines of the fold flat lidded square boxes I’ve been making recently and this triangular interior shape was so lovely I decided to go with it as it was.

I think it works!

Have a super week everyone!

Pootles’ Picks Shopping Gifts

Everyone who shops with me gets a handmade card and gift in the post. Sometimes the gift is a handcrafted item, sometimes it’s a product share, sometimes it’s something else entirely!

And every person gets that, regardless of how large or small your order is. I am grateful to everyone who shops with me.

I do however also have a Hostess Code and always share the goodies out amongst everyone who uses it. This month, I’m trialling something different.


  • Spend over £50/€65 and receive the divine Metallic Edge Ribbon in Silver worth £6.25/€8.50
  • Spend over £100/€135 and receive the utterly beautiful Background Bits stamp set worth £19/€25
  • If you’d still like to use the code and be part of the collective, but your order is under £50, please feel free to use it and I’ll make sure to pop a little something extra in your parcel!
  • If your order is over £150/€200 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!
