Pootles Advent Countdown 2017 #3 Stack of Christmas Gift Boxes

Pootles Advent Countdown 2017 #3 Stack of Christmas Gift Boxes

So I’ve been waiting to share this project with you for weeks and weeks!

I can’t stop loving this stack and it’s now residing in pride of place on my stationery cupboard in my office, where it will remain until December 1st and then take up home in the small boy’s play room. They love it as much as me, and while they know this particular one is empty, they still keep loving on it and trying to peek to see if I’ve put something in the boxes!

There’s something wonderfully decadent about a pile of gifts, we love the feeling of excitement that the pile gives us. And there’s nothing wrong with that, but equally, why not make a stack to work as home decor???

I worked with the Envelope Punch Board to make my boxes of Christmas Around the World loveliness, and these are all squares with heights the same.

I do have a rectangular version of this coming very soon….!

And while I remember, I’m also adding in the video for how to make the ribbon rose on top. I’ve not seen anyone else do one like this, and mine was filmed back in September 2013. Honestly, it’s so easy to make, so I’ve added that video too.

  12. Wow Sam, these projects are so clever. I can see me using these alot. The box stack would be fabulous for baby showers. Thank you for all your amazing inspiration.

  13. Absolutely gorgeous, love it and that ribbon rose is beautiful. Thanks Sam for always sharing your beautiful projects.

  14. As always you make the cutest things.
    But I wonder if the measurements on the 3″ box is correct?
    2-12? Should it be 2-1/2?

    I love your videos and you give me so much inspiration.
    The only downside is that I can’t buy and SU products…

    Kind regards,

  17. Peggy Mitchell says:

    I have had requests to have a class that will re-create your wonderful stack-of-boxes project along with the beautiful burlap ribbon rose. Do you have an estimate of how much of the burlap ribbon you used to wrap the boxes and to make the rose? Thanks so much.
