Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Long Thin Tuck ‘n Fold Box Tutorial using Coffee Break
How cute is this project? It’s made with the Coffee Break suite, but not a coffee bean or pot in sight!
It was one of the girls in my team (thank you Vicky!) who got me onto the blue shades in the paper when we were at my team retreat in June. I had been so taken by the beans and coffee icons that I just didn’t notice the blue. I know, I know, bad demo, must see all things in everything! But she created some projects from one of my make and takes and used the blues and that totally inspired me to make a couple of boxes that weren’t coffee related at all.
I still used the elements and papers and embellishments, but instead of using the matching stamp set, I went for Orange Blossom instead. Yes, I had a bit of an issue with my stamp set on camera, but you know me, I leave it all in, bloopers, errors and all!
And of course, the box itself is a little quirky in that it’s one of my no-glue tuck-n-fold boxes that will fold totally flat for storage. Got to love a space saver!
Have a great week, I’m celebrating with my son Luke today as it’s his 12th birthday. He’s requested pancakes for breakfast (British crepe style), and pizza for dinner…. wish me luck with the early morning pancakes!
