Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Criss Cross Decorated Tall Box Tutorial
Oh I had so much fun making this box!
It was a totally happy accident (you’ll see the actual project I was aiming for in a couple of weeks time) and that’s okay by me.
I wasn’t looking for this kind of decorative pattern, and in all honesty, the criss cross effect serves no physical purpose in the build of the box, but oh my does it look lovely!
I promise you, it’s no where near as complicated as you think it might be, in fact, it’s so easy that my 9 year old has had a go, and made a really good job of it!
I’m not sure which I prefer, the blue or the pink, but I find it curious that although they are identical and the bits that press ‘in’ are the same on both, there seems to be a sort of optical illusion over the 2 of them, and that they look as though different parts are in and others are out. I think those rhinestones have a hand in that little illusion!
Anyway, have a great Wednesday, and if you make one of these, please feel free to share it with me, or on the public Pootles Craft Forum group on facebook.
