Welcome everyone to another month of beautiful projects from our team of bloggers. I am happy to welcome Bonny Hastings to our blog hop.
My project this month is a treat box for Thanksgiving. I love making treat boxes for my holiday dinner tables. I recently watched the Kitchen Table Stamper create a little treat box using the Cuckoo Clock dies.
These dies come bundled with the Cuckoo for You stamp set (Annual Catalogue, page 29).
A second stamp set, Yummy Christmas, came out in the Holiday Catalogue (page 23) and coordinates with the same dies to cut out a gingerbread house.
I plan on making boxes for Christmas using this adorable gingerbread house. But first, let me introduce you to the box I made for Thanksgiving.
You are welcome to watch the YouTube video from the Kitchen Table Stamper here for instructions on making the box. I made my box wider so I could fit three Ghirardelli chocolate squares inside.
The dimensions for my box are:
Cut a piece of cardstock that measures 4″ x 4-1/2″
On the 4″ side, score at 1″ from each side
On the 4-1/2″ side, score at 1-3/4″ from each side.
Using the clock/gingerbread die, I cut two pieces from Gray Granite and two from Night of Navy cardstock. I ran the two gray pieces through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to give it a wood texture.
I then trimmed the top and bottom of the two navy pieces and glued them to the front and back of the gray pieces to create the house.
For the door, I used an older oval punch before realizing that you can use the die that cuts out the door for the clock.
So what do you think of my turkey? This image is from the Birds of a Feather stamp set, page 50 of the Holiday catalogue. So cute and a bird for several occasions. I already made a Christmas card using the cute chickadee.
I hope you enjoyed my project this month. If you have any questions, contact me. Now hop on over to Laura’s blog from here.
Happy stamping everyone.
