Popcorn Tubs

I've made something a little different today using the new dies and embossing folders we got in store from Echo Park.  The die I've used looks like a mini popcorn box and would be great for parties (it measures 5.5cm at the bottom, 6.5cm at the top by 11cm tall when made up) but I actually wanted a little tub to store my blending stumps in which was prettier than the loo roll with washi tape over the bottom I had been using!

The die includes 3 elements - the box sides (you cut 4) the stitched decorative side panels and a banner die which I didn't use but would be perfect to put names on if you were using them for parties.   I used a really thick (350gsm) navy card for the box itself and cut it 4 times - trimming off the "tabs" from 2 so you get nice flat corners when you stick it together.

I then die cut 4 panels using the stitched die from aqua card stock and ran those through the Ride the Wave embossing folder after die cutting to get some extra decoration - embossing folders aren't so trendy these days but they provide so much detail so quickly I still love them!

To add something extra to the front, I used another new Echo Park die - their gorgeous flamingo which is a 3 part die but it cuts 5 different elements for you to layer up - the bird, the beak, the flash behind the beak, the eye and the legs.   I die cut it from pink glitter card but then went over it with a couple of copics to get some shading.

I do love a flamingo, especially in glitter!



  • This week we will have the latest stamp and die release from Altenew in store along with 7 boxes bull of restocks!   We will not have the new washi tapes - they were released after we ordered so will be coming with a future delivery.
  • We should also get the latest release from Sugar Pea Designs this week customs willing.
  • We will also have a restock on Ranger alcohol inks and we will also be stocking Versafine Clair ink pads.
  • There will also be 3 brand new lovely legs stamps on the 3 May (they release 3 designs on the 3rd of each month)

Catch you later
