Stampin’ Up! UK Colour Clash Soap Gift Box Tutorial
Well, it’s been a while since I made a soap box design for my fabulous Soaper friends and customers, but this one has been sat in ‘storage’ for a while now, waiting for the perfect moment to release the video.
The completed box is 3 x 3 x 3.75″ (7.5 x 5 x 9.5cm) and is therefore a great size for 2 bars of delicious scented handmade soap, and that little extra ‘height’ is perfect for those of you who put incredible decorations on the tops of your soaps, and those who work the ‘peaks’ of your soap up super high! (yes, I know, I’ve seen them – you talented lot!)
But like all my boxes, I never make them only for one product, I like to make them for a variety of different things to hide inside, and that was why I came up with a different way to decorate the exterior.
The colour clash!
Well, it isn’t exactly a colour clash so to speak, but two colours on each box that could jarr and hurt the eyes, or meld together to blend.
I’m working on the melding together bit….
So the dimensions are below, and the video is HERE. Please note, I did give correct measurements on the video out loud, but I’m really not sure how I managed to actually score that DSP band wrong on one place.
I blame the sheet of paper that had 20+ lines of measurements written on it….

Score on long side at 2, 5, 7, 10″
Score on short side at 2, 5.75, 7.75″
