Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pinch Close Birthday Box Tutorial
Well it’s birthday season in our house right now, it was Chris’s birthday yesterday, Jack’s was on Thursday and a couple of weeks before, it was Oliver’s.
Then throw in nephews, in laws and everyone else as well, and we are back to back to back to….. well you get the point!
And seriously, we are over run with men! I have 2 brothers who have 4 sons between them, Chris has a sister, but she has 2 sons, and of course, our own 4 boys!
Whew! Mum and I feel very lonely sometimes!!!
But with the boy thing happening around here, Birthday’s just seem to conjure up blue colours, balloons and that sort of idea!
So my box today is pretty but not girly, stylish but not twee.
Perfect for a boy!
It uses the Birthday Bash Speciality DSP that has the lovely metallic gold in it and accessorised with sequin trim!
Oh and of course, different colours, just to see how they look!
I hope you enjoy the video, and perhaps you’ll share one you make with me!
