Lidded Box Tutorial using ©Stampin’ Up! Squares Framelits
Well, at the time of writing this post *stares at clock* 9pm, I have just tallyed up the ‘votes’ from my facebook page where I gave readers 5 projects to choose from to end up in today’s post. Normally I prep video projects ahead of time, but this week has been manic as far as filming is concerned, as my children break up from school today for 2 week’s Easter holiday, and I’ve needed to get ahead.
However, it was kind of fun to see which would be most popular, and I was not surprised by this one.
I love the lid of it. The whole lid is created using the Squares Framelits, and as you know, I like to use our products in different ways than how one would think.
I did have a slight ink-versus-naturals-ivory issue. The ink won. Learn from my rookie mistake, leave the ink to dry a little longer than normal if stamping onto naturals cardstock.
So here’s the video for you, if you want to view it on YouTube, click HERE!

Score on the SHORT side at 2 3/8″ (6cm)
Score the largest framelit at 1″ on all 4 sides (2.5cm)
