#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pootles Advent Countdown 2018 #6 No Glue, No Cut Box Tutorial
It’s Friday! And we are now at number 6 in the Advent Countdown which means we are a quarter of the way in. Eeeeesh it’s going too fast!
Well today’s project is an accidental discovery. This paper pattern that I’m showing isn’t one I’m overly keen on personally, so when I’m designing projects, I always use our paper (to make sure the fold and build is the same) and pull out a paper I don’t really like. However, sometimes, like today, the paper works and the project works first time.
I didn’t have anything in my head when I first started folding, I just started bending the paper this way and that, and looking to see what would happen.
I love the result though. It’s actually a really sturdy box and so clever.
My husband Chris is sat in the office with me as I type this blog post (he’s bringing me coffee and making dinner today!) and I’ve just unfolded the box to show him. He’s said I can quote him “you surprise me every day, in a good way!” I take that as high praise indeed!
And although the paper isn’t my favourite, I actually rather like the end result. The ribbon is lovely and then add in a little stamping and those gorgeous Festive Farmhouse Elements, job done! Pretty and traditional, with a modern twist.
Have a lovely Friday and definitely have a go at making one of these too.
