Pootles Advent Countdown 2017 #5 Year Of Cheer Ladder Stack

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles Advent Countdown 2017 #5 Year Of Cheer Ladder Stack

It’s here! It’s the 3rd of 3 stacks of 5 boxes that I’ve promised you over the last few weeks. I want to say this is my favourite because of how it stacks and how stunning the paper and foiling is, but there are much beloved parts of the other 2. It would be like choosing one of my children and declaring he’s my favourite. I just can’t do it!

But I absolutely adore the look of this one, and while my husband said he didn’t like the stack shape (rude!) I rather like that it’s a ladder. You know me, quirky…

I went exclusively for the Year of Cheer suite here, the paper and Champagne Foil making up the boxes, Foil Snowflakes on the sides and those adorable embellishments decorating it too. The ribbon is from the annual catalogue – the divine and oh so soft Classic Weave Ribbon. That big droopy bow makes me smile!

So these lovely boxes are made with the envelope punch board and carry the same height and depth (front to back) but the widths change to get this lovely ladder effect.

All the measurements are below the video and I hope you enjoy it!

    I made the first large box and ruined two pieces of foil paper due to the paper size should be 12″ not 10″. I’m telling you this so no one else waste the foil paper. Thanks–wonderful project. Linea

    • Hi Linea, the finished box should be 6″ left to right, 3″ front to back and 2″ tall. It’s definitely 10″ to start with x

  8. Linea Rue says:

    Sorry that didn’t work either–it made a bigger box.
