Fresh Floral Lovely Box with Unusual Top

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Fresh Floral Lovely Box with Unusual Top

I love this paper! It’s so gorgeous and elegant and lovely and pretty and. and. and…. See! Love it!

In fact, I think I love all our new in colours. Yes, even LLT is growing on me (that’s Lemon Lime Twist if you’re not as used to Stampin’ Up! colours as me!). And I love that a much loved DSP was refreshed into the current in colours. Such genius from head office!

So I’ve taken new colours and revisited an old project, and it’s so pretty. A lovely looking box with an unusual lid. Yes, I may have done battle with the ribbons, but the result is worth it! Maybe stick to the thinner one….

And aren’t the Glitter Acrylic Shapes just divine? So pretty and sparkly!

Anyway, hope you’re having a great week, I have visitors all week and I’m loving it!

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!

    Lovely boxes Sam.

  2. Cute and functional boxes, Sam. And guess what – I actually like the box with the “mistake” better. They are both lovely, and it’s not as if one is right and the other wrong — but the one with the smaller piece of DSP on the front is just a little more unique. We often see the sentiment adhered within the DSP; to see it floating off a bit brings more interest, and a surprise to the eye.

  3. love the shap of this box. Kind of reminds me of a (school-)backpack. One could even ad some ribbon or cardstock strips to the back for actual straps and it would be a actual backpack. Would be a cool back-to-school gift box.
