    Great size and not as difficult as I thought it would be. Your beloved sticky strip is being replaced with a “tear and tape” adhesive. No more scissors (or static cling red liners!) YAY!! Hoping it is comparable to Scor-Tape.

      You bet. I made this video the evening before the new catalog came out so I was pleased to see that the tear and tape adhesive is taking it’s place. I think it’s the same thing as scor tape and that stuff is stupid strong. Glad you liked the box, it was a cool build. 🙂

    Are you watching me!? I am actually sitting here watching your video (and making copious notes!) with a cuppa in my hand (I’m a Typhoo girl!) As soon as I saw the box I liked it, then when I saw you open it on the video, I fell in love with it, it is gorgeous!!! I love spending time with you, it is such a pleasure! Just be thankful you are thousands of miles away, because I would annoy the heck out of you – at least on the video I can rewind when I am too slow with my notes or cutting & sticking! Good to read Sharon’s comment re: a replacement for Sticky Strip. I do like Fast Fuse, but just when I think I’ve mastered it, I get all gummed up and in a right tangle, also I wobble and go over the edge which then makes it sticky on the outside. Oh, back to the box – absolutely wonderful, it is pretty classy! Thanks for another great project. I’m off for a refill (and a biscuit!) Have a great weekend. And Thank You! x

      Aww Karen. It’s my pleasure for sure. Thanks for taking the time and commenting from across the pond. If I ever visit your land again I will have to stop by and say hi. Happy weekend to you.

    You’d be more than welcome, I’d even put the kettle on! though I know you prefer coffee, although maybe not the way I make it!?! Though I don’t know why you’d ever want to leave Kelowna, it looks fabulous! I saw the video link you posted on Facebook, and the photos on your blog – it looks an amazing place to live. It is not how I imagined Canada at all – all I have ever seen is mountains and snow! – the word ‘ignorance’ springs to mind! – not any longer, I am educating myself, well trying to anyway!?!

      Yes Canada can be cold and snowy but thank goodness I live in a very Sun shiney area. It’s so hot here in the summer. We live in shorts and t shirts. It’s a long weekend here and there are many tourists. I’m staying off the main roads and using alternate routes to get around. Check out my Facebook page, recently I posted a video showing all 4 of our seasons. I love where i live. 🙂
