Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – How to make a box for Soaps or Mini Cards
Ah it’s a pretty one today!
I do love Scottish Fine Soaps in their lovely keepsake tins, but I fully believe that every gift needs a box, even if it has it’s own already. I mean, the tins are stunning, but it kinda gives the game away to hand over an unwrapped gift, so I made a box!
Tone on tone stamping was the order of the day, I liked how pretty the soft So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz were together on the tin, and when I made the one on video, I wanted to do the same, but with a different pair of colours from the Subtles Collection. And the tone on tone stamping worked perfectly again. At least, I think so!
The shape of the box was important to me too, I wanted you to open the box and look straight down onto the contents rather than making it a sort of ‘open one end and shake out the gift’ type of box. You know what I mean. At least I hope you do!!
After that it was simple to use the Lots to Love set to get a little sentiment on the front, then some stunning shimmer ribbon and box made.
Of course, if you don’t have Scottish Fine Soaps available to you, the box works perfectly for so many other things including small cards or other luxury treats!
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
