Foil Frenzy Drop Fronted Treat Box Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Foil Frenzy Drop Fronted Treat Box Tutorial

How lovely is this?!

After 2 weeks of back to back video tutorials that only showed Spring Summer products, I thought it would be nice to come in with stunning paper from the annual catalogue. Just for the change!

I recently invited my team to create projects that were ‘just because’. You know that I do a lot of these sorts of projects, with no specific theme or season in mind, and it was during our weekly team training where I was talking about mojo, creativity, burnout and keeping yourself going, that it became apparent that lots of people craft only when they have something specific in mind. And of course, many of my team are like me, sharing ideas to inspire you all, so that’s how the ‘Just Because’ challenge came about.

And this is mine! Never let it be said that I don’t do what I challenge the team to do!

I’m not sure what I’d put in here, it kind of depends on the recipient I guess, but there’s a pink one for me and an orange one for Chris (apparently it’s his 2nd favourite colour, after black that is)….

Isn’t it cute with the drop front?

I’ve done quite a few drop front boxes over the years, but this is a new size for me, short and squat!

Have a fantastic Monday wherever you are, and I send you much love, Just Because…
