Fun with the Baker’s Box Thinlits

Happy Scenes, A Little Something, Baker's Box, Holiday, Gift Box

Hello, Stampers! It’s a wonderful weekend here in Michigan! The temperature is up into the 80’s so no one will be able to complain about not getting any summer this year. We might even get to 90 again this week. Summer is here!

I have had a busy week! We are in the final stretch of summer before my kids go to college – my son will be starting his senior year and my daughter her freshmen year. So, I hope you will bear with me as I struggle to find any spare time in my craft room. I did manage to play one evening with the baker’s box and wanted to share them with you. The one above is using some of my new Holiday Catalog products. Just think how fun it would be to fill this box with homemade (or not) treats for friends, coworkers and/or kids! Cute, eh? I sponged one side but you can do all of them or none. I made a cute little “roof” with a 3″x6″ piece of Brushed Silver cardstock which was scored at 2 1/2″, 3″, and 3 1/2″ then textured with the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. A sweet Watermelon Wonder bow was threaded through the two-holes and a simple little tag was made from the new stamp set, A Little Something. Fast and fun!

When I got the Brushed Silver Cardstock out, it reminded me that I also had Brushed Gold and it got me thinking. So I cut another box out and trimmed it with the new Glimmer Black Paper (another Sneak Peek) that I have been asking for! Love it!!! You might also notice the new Glitter Ribbon that comes in Gold and White that will be a “must have” this holiday season. The flower was the easiest one to make because I scrunched the new Gold Foil Doilies around that beautiful antique brad! I will definitely be doing that again – so fast and easy!
