Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – No Cut, No Stick, Long Slim Box Tutorial
Yay, it’s back! The 12 Deals of Christmas from the last 2 years have been so popular that I couldn’t not bring it back to you again this year….!
Details are down at the bottom…!
Okay so I’m super dooper excited about today’s box. This was not at all what I was planning to make when I got out my scoring tool and started experimenting, and it was as much a surprise to me as anyone, that it holds itself closed. Don’t ask me how it does it, it’s some sort of weird sciency type law that’s beyond me, but I do love it!
I’ve got the two boxes here on my desk and at the time of writing, it’s the 1st of January, the date of build was December 15th. They’ve been opened, closed, moved on and off my desk, and are still holding themselves closed without any issue whatsoever. I tweaked the blue one a little after filming was completed. I hadn’t scored sharply enough on the diagonal creases, but it will make sense when you see the video!
I hope you have a go at making one, they’re honestly a lot easier than seems!
Dimensions when finished – 2 x 7″ (17.5 x 5cm)

1 of – 0.75 x 6.75″ (2 x 17cm)
12 Deals of Christmas.
So, what’s this all about? Well, I don’t do sales, and I don’t do discounts. In my professional opinion, Stampin’ Up! offers the best quality products at the best prices around (and with over 10 years crafting experiences, trust me, I’ve tried ‘em all!). So you won’t ever see me offering to reduce the prices of products, or sharing my discount. But what I want to do, as a one off, just for Christmas, is offer 12 extra goodies that go into the regular Thank You Gift Pack that I send out to all my customers.
Each ‘deal’ will only be available for the stated day, and will vary in price, product and value.
I get an immediate email notification of all orders that come in, so you don’t need to worry about getting in touch, or emailing to say you want to take advantage of the deal, I’ll send it out automatically.
Please note, if you select NO CONTACT, I cannot, by law, send you anything. Please make sure that you deselect that button….
Today’s Deal is –
All orders over £90 will receive a pack of Birthday Bouquet DSP (from today’s video!) from me, inside their regular Thank You Gift Pack. It will come direct from me, as this is an offer direct from me. It will not come with the order you place. If you use the hostess code for the month, it will still count for Both!
Fine Print. This is not a catch, there is no single winner, this is not a competition. Please do not add it to your order, (unless of course you want duplicates!) as I will be sending this separately.
All Thank You Gift Packs will be posted after the 12 Deals of Christmas have finished.
I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to get free product! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!) Learn more HERE. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as You become the hostess and get the Rewards!
