Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Fold Flat Easy Stick Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! Supplies
Happy Friday everyone!
Hurrah, a tutorial with reasonable lighting and everything in shot…. Thank goodness for LED light strips overhead and a blind fully on!
I have a lovely couple of boxes to share with you today, and I am so pleased with how lovely they both look! I’d planned for both of them to be Tutti Frutti, but my new Truly Tailored bundle arrived right before I was due to start filming, so I had to dive straight in! Literally! Not a single stamp prepped and I was in there!
The first box was paired with the Lemon Zest stamp set from the Annual catalogue and yes, I did some fussy cutting to keep the words from being too large over the lemon and lime slices, but with the manly True Gentleman box, I just had to use the matching punch. Oh I can see this one is going to be a great friend to me in my craft room!
And yes, as promised, it folds flat! Flat flat flat!!! And just one piece of adhesive tape is needed to seal it up. Yay for easy-stick and fold-flat…!
I also need to mention the button thing. I really cannot stand them. It’s a hideous phobia that I’m much better with now than I used to be, thanks to my children having them seemingly all over their uniforms, but they still set my fingers a-twitching and my skin prickles up…. I love how they look on a paper project, and will do my best to get one on there as I adore the look, but touching them is a different matter…
The first time I publicly mentioned this strange phobia, my friend Lynnette, a journalist and vintage fashionista, asked me to write a blog post for her on her Vintage Emporium Store website because she’d never heard of such a thing. So to save me explaining my phobia more, do feel free to have a read of this post from 2013, a few months before I joined Stampin’ Up!
Back to the project though, I hope you make one and get some fruit or some tailoring going on in your life.
