Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions.
1. Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Crumb Cake card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
~You can stamp the Hardwood image in Chocolate Chip ink either before you cut out your Baker’s Box pieces or after you have cut it out. I did it after, but it would probably be easier if you stamped before you cut them out.
~Before. Ink up your Hardwood stamp and lay Rubber side up. Lay your card stock on top of the inked stamp. Use a Clear Stamp Block and rub it over all the card stock to transfer the ink. Remove card stock. Repeat with the second piece.
~After: Fold the side score lines and do one side at a time. Lay one folded side of your cut Baker’s Box piece on top of the inked stamp, as above and rub with a Clear Stamp Block. Repeat for the other side and the other cut piece.
2. Add your Tear & Tape to the side tabs and the bottom flaps.
~~Side Flaps (smaller): With the outside facing up, put Tear & Tape on the outside edge and the bottom on both pieces.
~~Front and Back Flaps (larger with V in the center. I leave this part flat):
~~~Front: Put Tear & Tape on the INSIDE of both sides of the V.
~~~Back: Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V.
~Cut two Pine Cones from Chocolate Chip card stock. Angle the two Pine Cones together the way you want and attach them together with Glue Dots. Tie a bow with the Gold Baker’s Twine.
~Cut 2 small Pine Branches and 1 Medium Pine Branch from Garden Green card stock.
4. Assemble your Box: Attach the side Tabs. Now for the bottom flaps: sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last.
~Choose the front of your Box. Attach the Medium Pine Branch about 1″ above the center score line on the box front with a Glue Dot. Attach the other two Pine Branches on top of the first one with Glue Dots. Attach the Pine Cones with 2-3 Glue Dots on top of where the Pine Branches meet.
~Tie closed with Gold Ribbon.
