Open Double Faceted Open Topped Box Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Open Double Faceted Open Topped Box Tutorial

Yay, it’s back! The 12 Deals of Christmas from the last 4 years have been so popular that I couldn’t not bring it back to you again this year….!

Details are down at the bottom…!

Hurrah! It’s New Catalogue day, and I had to start with something spectacular for you didn’t I?

It’s a Double Faceted Box, but this one is open at the top….. I love it!

It came about as an open box because I’d used some of the beautiful Painted with Love DSP on another project, and this was what I had left over. I love that it’s open at the top, and I can’t stop using the Ready Shreddie in my projects. It’s so cute, and it means that you can upsize your boxes to leave them open, and stuff the top with the shrinkle crinkly stuff!

I’m not a huge user of dies on video projects, today is an example of why…. Much like my inability to tie a bow on camera, something always goes wrong when I’m die cutting, today it’s a jumping die!

Fortunately though I did get a good result and it’s nice to share a bundle with you for a change…. Lots to Love and Sure Do Love you are lovely together!

Anyway, have a super Wednesday and if you’re shopping the new catalogue, let me know what’s caught your eye as your Must Have purchase!

12 Deals of Christmas.

So, what’s this all about? Well, I don’t do sales, and I don’t do discounts. In my professional opinion, Stampin’ Up! offers the best quality products at the best prices around (and with over 10 years crafting experiences, trust me, I’ve tried ‘em all!). So you won’t ever see me offering to reduce the prices of products, or sharing my discount. But what I want to do, as a one off, just for Christmas, is offer 12 extra goodies that go into the regular Thank You Gift Pack that I send out to all my customers.

Each ‘deal’ will only be available for the stated day, and will vary in price, product and value.

I get an immediate email notification of all orders that come in, so you don’t need to worry about getting in touch, or emailing to say you want to take advantage of the deal, I’ll send it out automatically. 

Please note, if you select NO CONTACT, I cannot, by law, send you anything. Please make sure that you deselect that button….

Today’s Deal is –

All orders over £75 will receive a pack of Petal Passion Embellishments from me, as well as their regular Thank You Gift Pack. It will come direct from me, as this is an offer direct from me. It will not come with the order you place. If you use the hostess code for the month, it will still count for Both!

Fine Print. This is not a catch, there is no single winner, this is not a competition. Please do not add it to your order, (unless of course you want duplicates!) as I will be sending this separately.

All Thank You Gift Packs will be posted after the 12 Deals of Christmas have finished.

I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to get free product! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!) Learn more HERE. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as You become the hostess and get the Rewards!
