Pootler’s Design Team – Week 3

Thank you for joining me today for Week 3 of the Pootler’s Design Team challenge.  Today I have a quick and easy holder that I made to store my watercolour pencils, paintbrushes, scissors etc. 

Have you entered my Crafting Forever Clear Mount stamp set Giveaway? click here for details.  No purchase necessary to enter the giveaway.




I had been planning to make the holder for quite a while but I kept putting it off.  When Sam sent me the Crafting Forever stamp set the images in it were perfect for the holder. 



I made 3 holders that were 2″ (w) x 2″ (d) and descended in height 5″, 4-1/2″ and 4″.  I cut and stamped the Berry Burst cardstock before scoring.  I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere the 3 boxes, you will need to use a strong adhesive.



On the front of the holder I added a 3/4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and a 1/2″ strip of Berry Burst cardstock that was scored at every 1/8″.  I also added a bow with the coordinating Berry Burst 1/2″ Woven Ribbon.  To prettify it a little bit more I used the Decorative Ribbon Punch on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and added it to the bottom of the holder.

If you would like to see the new projects I have made with this great stamp set check back here every Thursday in December or subscribe to my blog (details below).

*When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock.   I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made.  When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock.*
