Cantilever Box Revisited–and Tutorial For Sale

 Lullaby Cantilever Box By Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, 2014-07 (4)
This is one of the projects we have been busy making during my July Workshops… I think I am now onto my fourth (as the easiest way to demonstrate is to remake another!)…so there are a few more versions to share with you at a later point…

But here is the story behind it….

A long long time ago. I saw a gorgeous and very clever box created by a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator & fellow Jems’ team member – Sarah Bonsell. Sarah’s tutorial had to be bought, the box had to be made – I added the handles - and the box was shared here on my blog.

Since then it has usually shown in the Top 4 of my most popular blog posts. And my blog has linked up to Sarah’s for anyone to be able to purchase the tutorial. Although little did I know that Sarah now does not sell her tutorial…. but panic not… we have a plan!!

So move on 4 years… I just had to remake the project. And so here it is. This time in the new Lullaby papers and the wonderful new Kraft Cardstock…. perfect for making boxes of all shapes & descriptions.

So thanks again to Sarah for the original creation… and also for allowing me to now re-write and sell the tutorial to share this great project with you. Just £4 (GBP). 

Or - if you live in the UK - the Tutorial can be yours for free with a £20+ Stampin’ Up! order (before P&P). Click here to place a Stampin' Up! order via my Online Store. And then email me after placing your SU! order so that I know to send you a Tutorial rather than my standard gift and card...

So how to order & pay for the Tutorial?
Just select your required option using the Paypal button below and click on Add to Cart. You will then be taken to a new screen showing the amount to pay and to enter your details. Payment can be via Paypal or credit/debit card. And any currency conversion will be dealt with through that process - I will just receive less in a nutshell... 

Cantilever Box Tutorial. Please select your required option.

The pdf format Tutorial(s) are being emailed out daily ... but normally allow 48 hours after your payment... then check your Spam folder (or add my email address to ensure it doesn't go to spam!) and then please feel free to email me ... there is sometimes an occasional email that goes astray...

Or if you are local to my York/Harrogate/Wetherby/Thirsk/Easingwold area and would prefer to arrange a workshop with friends to make one – then again please just email me….

And as a final note on this clever box format….. I also have a few more ideas that I am determined to create one day…so I am just waiting for the day!! And then I will have more to share…

  4. Hi amanda I would like yo buy the tutorial for the canter lever box unfortunately the email link does not seem to work, is there another way to order and pay ?

    1. Hi June... email link still working when I click it... but otherwise just copy and paste into the TO part of an email... I can then send you a PayPal invoice( let me know your PayPal email addy though) ... or you could speed up the process by just sending £4GBP by PayPal to the same email address,ie. . Remember to tell me you want the Cantilever Box...and whether you want the imperial or metric version....
