On my Soapbox!

Well hello everyone and welcome to my bit of the second Pootlers' Blog hop!




If you're following the blog in order then you already know that the Pootlers are Stampin' Up! demonstrators who belong to Sam Donald's team.  If you've arrived in the middle of things, you can go back to the previous blog or on to the next one by using the buttons at the bottom of the page.  

The theme of the hop is the new SU catalogue, which came into play at the beginning of this month.  (There's a link to the PDF version at the bottom of the page if you haven't seen a copy yet...)  I've used Timeless Elegance DSP and a stamp from the Homemade for You stamp set, both brand new in the catalogue to decorate this little flip-top box (which holds a cake of soap).  The Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla cardstock, Sahara Sand ink, and Sahara Sand lace trim are returning favourites.

To make a box the same size as this one (which measures 2 x 2 x 1 inches) you'll need a piece of card 7 1/2 x 4 inches.

Score it on the long side at 1 1/2 inch, 2 1/2/ inches, 3 1/2 inches  and 5 1/2 inches.
Score on the short side at 1 inch and 3 inches.

The tutorial on how to put it together is here-




So there it is! Thank you for visiting and on you go to the next blog!
