Easy No Glue Foldable Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! Hand Stamps

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Easy No Glue Foldable Box Tutorial using Stamps

Ooooo I think a 2″ (5cm) cube box has to be one of the most adorable sizes out there. It’s cute and small, but a bit like the Tardis, it holds so much more than you realise!

And this one is no different in the ‘cute’ factor, but it also holds a little secret. No glue needed!

I love quirky boxes but I also love easy storage boxes…  One of the ladies in my team recently shared a photo in my Craft Forum of a huge cardboard box that she had, and it was full of boxes she’d made! She wasn’t the only one either, loads of people shared that they too had gift boxes made and ready, but they were all inside another bigger box!

So that’s what prompted me to design a box that looked lovely, but wouldn’t take up a lot of space when you’re holding onto it while waiting for the perfect gifting opportunity!

And how cute is the stamping? I love the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, I’ve used it a lot, and I like that it doesn’t have to be specifically for a birthday gift. Anytime is gifting time isn’t it???

Oooo and too cute, those flowers are tiny and come from the Tree Builder punch!

Anyway, have a super day!
