Pootlers Design Team Challenge November Week 2 - The Little Things Sachet Box Pictorial

It's Week 2 of being part of the Pootlers Design Team for the November Challenge.  Our task for the month of November is to come up with projects utilising The Little Things Stamp Set.

I have chosen this week to make a sachet style box which could hold sweets, cookies, choccies etc.

Its simple to make, and I think it has a quaintness and charm which is almost quite retro ?

Again, this week I have gone with a very traditional Christmas colour theme, using Real Red and Garden Green to co-ordinate with the Quilted Christmas Designer Series 6 x 6 papers that I really do love, despite my natural propensity to veer away from anything "traditional".

So here is my step by step pictorial.  Hope you like it !

Step 1

Card stock measures 11 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches

Long side score @ 1 1/2, 5 3/8, 6 7/8 and 10 3/4 inches

Step 2  Score @ 3/4 down to roughly 6 inches at the left hand side of the score board.  Repeat this 6 1/8 inches

   down to

Step 3

Short side score @ 1 1/2 inches.

Step 4

Remove the little rectangle as shown below.

Step 5

Add the decorative panel which measures 3 1/2 x 4 7/8 inches where shown.  Cut up the remaining bottom score lines and then burnish.  (Do not burnish the partial vertical score lines).

Step 6

Add double-sided tape where shown.

Step 7

Adhere as shown.

Step 8

Use double-sided tape to adhere the base, taking small wedges from the two side pieces that tuck in.

Step 9

Gently pinch the top of the sachet together and apply gentle pressure to the two vertical partial score lines.

Step 10

Fill your sachet and tie a decorative ribbon to secure the sachet.

Step 11

To decorate my sachet I used a Delicate White Doilie, die cut two scallop circles using the two largest scallop circles in my Layering Circles Framelits Dies (the largest in Real Red and the next in Garden Green card stock), and stamped in real red the sentiment which I also die-cut (using the 3rd largest plain circle die).

Step 12

The circle topper was assembled as shown below.

And this is the result:-

Well, that's it from me.  I need to get back to the drawing broad to plan an little something for Week 3 of the Pootlers Design Team November Challenge !   Wish me luck.

  3. Wow Linda an early morning post. IU thought I would be the first to comment but well done Rosemary. I did try on my phone but it lost it! So I am on my laptop now. I love this sachet, what a useful project to have at hand. I was thinking what I could put inside it e.g. hot chocolate sachets, tea sachets, bath salts sachets the list is endless. I wanted to ask Linda whether your viewers are invited into the November Design Team Challenges. But then I had the thought that I do not have just Stampinup products, in fact, I have a right mixture because it depends on what it on sale to what I purchase. ;o)

    1. It was scheduled to go out early with the posts by the other ladies who were invited to take part. Its not my Design Team. My team leader runs it each month with projects by different members of her team. Glad you like the sachet box xx
