Love that swirl & triangle boxes...& a September offer

I think you've probably worked out by now that I love a good swirl, so it's no surprise that the 'So Swirly' wheel & 'Priceless' stamp set have been getting a huge workout since they arrived in April. While looking for some pics today, I realised I'd forgotten to show you these triangle boxes (& another card which I can't find a pic for!) that I made for Christine's & her workshop guests way back in July using these stamps.
Triangle boxes are really quick & easy to make & look great, so are a workshop favourite of mine. They're perfect for chocolates (although IMO what isn't? ....& if you can't store them, eat them I say....but I digress), or any other small items. You just need half an A4 sheet of card to make them & some ribbon to keep them closed, so they don't use require many supplies. The supply lists for these boxes is at the bottom of this post.
I tried to load a template to show you the scores for the box but blogger is just not complying, so I found this tutorial that you can check out instead. The sizing is different to this version but the score pattern is the same. If you need any help though, just drop me an e-mail.
Hope you enjoy making these as much as I do. Happy stamping!
