Spotty Triangular Top Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Parade Paper
Oooo, spotty boxes!
We all know I love the Polka Dot Parade DSP, and I am gutted, yes, that’s GUTTED, that it is retiring. Waaahhhh! What am I going to do?!?!?
Well, just use it all up I suppose!!
So my project today is a small big box (don’t go there, I confused myself…) but it’s actually half a sheet of 12×12 cardstock, so you could get 2 from a big sheet (now, do you see what I did there!)
But its a solid box, and as it doesn’t have an opening bottom, you could put some quite heavy things in there. Perfume maybe? A bar of handmade soap?
And I blimmin well love it! It’s spotty and pretty and has a fluffy flower on the front! (tutorial for this is HERE!)
But I hope you like this project. I love the top of it, and just how crisp and sharp that triangular top is. It makes me happy to have crisp sharp angles! (finished box measures 3 x 1.5 x 3 3/4 to apex which is 4 x 7 x 9.5cm)
