Just For You Baker's Box [for The Paper Players Challenge PP262]

Hey, folks!

Hope you had a great weekend!  I meant to get this posted yesterday, but I was feeling kind of wiped out.  I've been sleeping odd hours lately, and it's starting to get to me!  Here's the gift box I made to share...


I'm kind of in love with the Baker's Box Thinlits Dies [I got myself the bundle]!  Even if the gift you're giving is not very exciting, just packaging it up in a handmade box or bag can make it look special, I think. :o)

I'm entering my baker's box in the current colour challenge over at The Paper Players [PP262]:


I want to thank Sandy for choosing my card for the last challenge at The Paper Players -- her kind words and punny comment made me smile! :o)

Here's how I made my baker's box...

I started by die-cutting Lost Lagoon patterned paper from Sweet Dreams with the main Baker's Box Thinlit die -- you'll need to die-cut two pieces to make a box.  I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to stick the pieces together.

I die-cut two leaves using a die from Leaflets Framelits, one in Tangelo Twist and one in So Saffron.  I debossed the So Saffron leaf with the Elegant Dots folder, then used just a bit of glue down the center to stick the leaves together.  I offset them a little, which kind of creates a shadow effect!

I inked the stamp from Homemade For You with Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon markers, then trimmed around the circle by hand.  I layered it with a So Saffron pinking-edged circle, a banner I cut from corrugated paper, and a Tangelo Twist label.  The pinking-edged circle and label dies are from the Baker's Box Thinlits set.  I added a couple of So Saffron Candy Dots just for fun.

You know that trend of putting a little 'nest' of thread on projects?  This is the first time I've ever done that.  I just wanted to add a little something extra behind the label, but I didn't know what to add!  I thought, why not add a bit of linen thread.

Here's a look at the bundle I used to make my box:
