Pootler’s Design Team Week 3


Hi, and welcome to week 3 of The Pootler’s Design Team blog. I have had so much fun experimenting with this set! This week I wanted to do something other than a card so had to put my thinking cap on. I have a little box that sits on my desk with post-it notes in it, so I decided to copy the design and see how it turned out.

I was really pleased with the end result – it turned out to be a super easy box to make, all I really had to do was think of the design for the top. To make the box I used the gorgeous new Fresh Fig card stock from the new catalogue, I think it is definitely one of my favourite colours so far this year.


I used a little bit of the new Powder Pink ribbon to make a wee tag to open the box – then of course I HAD to go and buy some chocolates to see how they would fit in the box!!

In the end I decided to make a card as well to match the box as I was really pleased with how cute the box turned out.

Pop over to my You Tube channel to see a tutorial for this box:

Bella Gift bag

Hi and welcome to this weeks blog!

I have combined a couple of my favourites today to produce these cute little gift bags.


I adore the Bella and Friends stamp set, it’s so cute. And my favourite designer series paper at the moment is the gorgeous Blooms and Bliss. It is really beautiful.

I have two favourite tools at the minute. One is the Stampin’ Up Gift bag Punchboard. It’s so easy to produce gorgeous gift bags in minutes! The other is the gorgeous die set, Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies – these dies add a beautiful effect to your project.

So I have put together these favourites in a YouTube video, so that you can see how they all come together beautifully.

I really hope that you enjoy this video and give these gift bags a go yourself.

Gift Bag Tutorial

Hi everyone, welcome to todays blog. I love making sets of cards in a pretty gift bag or box.I recently made a set of cards and I wanted something a little different to the ones I have made in the past, so I came up with this cute little bag.


It can, of course be used for any gift, but it holds a set of 4 notelets and envelopes, to give you a rough idea of what you can fit in it.

I enoyed using this set of Designer Series Paper, its called By The Shore and I think it’s very bright and cheery. I also love my Petite Petals stamp set and the lovely punch that goes with it, so this was a lovely excuse to use these!

To make this bag you will need a piece of card or DSP that measures 10.5 x 10.5″

Score on one side at 1″, 4.75″, 5.75″ and 10″

Turn and score at 1″ and 6.25″

You will find the instructions to make this bag in the video, and all the products I used will be listed at the bottom of this blog.

I would love for you to go and have a look at my video and have a go at making this cute little bag.

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty week!
