On hexagon boxes and humanity...

Part of my job as Splitcoaststampers' Tutorial Coordinator is to create videos for tutorial authors who don't have the equipment to make one themselves. I enjoy making videos, and the many other behind-the-scenes parts of my job. BUT... there are times that a tutorial is outside my comfort zone. You may have noticed I don't do many foldy projects. There's a reason for that!

They hate me.

Today's tutorial is a cute little hexagon container made using a Candy Box Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. The tutorial author wasn't able to provide a video, so I kindly offered to help her out.


Thank heaven for video editing programs. This was not an easy one for me. Factor in washi tape... and we pretty much have a disaster.

For what it's worth...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Ultra sweet pencil box and the stamp sentiment is always true!!! PS I think my letter to you back in what, September 2013 is permanently lost.

  2. A lovely exagon box ! A great idea for pencils !

  3. Thanks for sharing the "real" video:) Cute box!

  4. Dina,

    It was nice to start the day with a couple of giggles!


  5. In all seriousness, this made me feel fantastic. I've been wallowing in self-pity for a month now, thinking I'm completely incapable of producing anything worthwhile. Seeing that someone like you can still have trials is the best 'tutorial' I've seen in awhile. Every once in awhile, Beatte would do something like this and I always bookmarked them as my faves. THIS video is something I'll always treasure. Thanks for helping me out of a serious rut. :)

  6. love to see the bloopers-it's real.

    That white on black is just amazing! And I am so glad that I am not the only one who has trouble with "foldy things" - that just made my day because I truly don't get them. at. all....

  8. The end result is wonderful Dina!!!! I emphasize with you on foley type projects....LOL!

  9. Dina, it is absolutely no new thing to most of us, we all encounter this kind of "frustrating" moments. Somehow, we failed and we tried and we make it. I watched the video twice and laugh my mouth to my ears. I feel greatly relieved. Thanks for sharing the reality in life.
