Here are the instructions to make the crate which holds 12 Hershey Nuggets if you pur 2 on the side and one on top.

CRATE SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes  Wood Mount #128748, Clear Mount #127802
Ink:  Tranquil Tide
Card Stock:  Whisper White
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (6×6) #144177
Big Shot:  Wood Crate Framelits #143730
Punch:  Classic Label #141491
Adhesives:  Tear & Tape
Fast Fuse or SNAIL
Candy or Treats  I used Hershey Nuggets.  Use your Guy’s favorite candy.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Choose two sheets of the Wood Textures paper to cut your crate from.  Cut out with the Wood Crate Thinlit.  Fold all score lines:  along the short side and long side, bottom, two side tabs.
2.  Add Tear & Tape to the side tabs on both Crate pieces.  Also add add strips of Tear & Tape along the top side of the bottom of just ONE of the crates.
3.  Put the Crate piece on the bottom that has the Tear & Tape on it.  Attach the other bottom piece to the Tear and Tape.  Now attach the bottom tabs on both sides, the the side tabs.
4.  Stamp Happy Father’s Day twice  on Whisper White card stock in Tranquil Tide ink.  Punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Attach to the sides of the Crate.
5.  Insert the Hershey Nuggets by laying three along the bottom with flat side down.  Now lay one on its side with the flat side along the short side of the Crate.  Repeat with two more layers of three Nuggets laying with flat side down.  Add one more with the flat side against the short side of the Crate.  Top with one more to make an even dozen Nuggets.

This cute Bunny Treat Holder is perfect for Easter or Spring Treat or Small Gift Giving.  It is also really quick to make!  So get some Thick Whisper White card stock and some circle and oval Framelits or punches and make one for the people you love.
Bunny Treat Holder, Bunny Gift HolderSUPPLIES:
Marker:  Basic Black #1000082
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Blushing Bride
Big Shot:  Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372
Adhesive:  Tear & Tape
Tombow Glue
Other:  Pencil or pen
Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade #126889

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut and prepare your papers:
~two large circles from Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used the largest Circl Stitched Shapes Framelit.  Put both circles together on your Paper Trimmer and trim off 1/2″  This will give you a flat bottom.
~Two Thick Whisper White ovals the size you want for your Bunny Ears.  I used the second smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Two Blushing Bride ovals just smaller than your Bunny Ears.  I used the smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Decide how wide you want your Bunny Treat Holder to be.  Mine is 1″ wide.  Decide how wide you want the tabs to be.  Mine is 3/8″.  Double this measurement – 3/4″.  So I cut a 1-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ piece to go between the large circles.  Score along each 8-1/2″ side at 3/8″ so you have two long tabs.  Put the Tear & Tape on the tabs now.  Leave the Tape backing on.  Fold both Scored Tabs with your Bone Folder.  This is your Bunny Width Strip.
Bunny Treat Holder-side vid2.  Prepare & Assemble.
~Choose one of your Circles to be the front.  Draw a Bunny Face on it.  Don’t worry if it is not perfect.  It will give you bunny character and make it even cuter!
~If desired you can add a Bunny Tail to the other circle with a small punched circle or a pom pom.
~Glue a Pink Oval to a Whisper White Oval.  Repeat with the next set.
Bunny Width Strip
~Find the center of your Bunny Width Strip either by measuring and marking the tabs at 4-1/4″ or by making light fold marks on the tabs.
~Hold the flat part of your Bunny Face circle next to the center of your Bunny Width Strip.  Try to make the Bunny Face even on both sides of the center mark.  Mark both the tabs where the outside of the Bunny Face is.  I drew a straight line on the tabs.  DO NOT cut between these lines!!
~Now cut out “V” shapes every 3/8″ to 1/2″ along both tabs leaving the part you marked in the center flat.  These “V” shapes will help eliminate bulk and make it easier to attach to your Bunny Face and Back.
Assembly
~Now pull off the Tape Backing.  Have your Tabs folded up with the Adhesive on the outside.
Attach your Bunny Front and Back to the center of each tab with the part you want showing on the facing outward and the plain sides facing the Bunny Width Strip.
~Decide how far up you want the Bunny Width Strip to go on each side of the Bunny Face and Back.
~ Attach one side of the Tab to both sides of either the Bunny Face or Back up as high as you want.  Trim off the excess on both sides.  Repeat with the the other Bunny Face or Back.
~Glue the Bunny Ears inside the Bunny Back.  I put Tombow Glue on about 1/4″ from the bottom of the Bunny Ear and attached it close to the Bunny Width Strip.
~Fill with Treats or a small gift.

Here is a fun Fall Baker’s Box decorated with Pine Branches and Pine Cones to give to your  favorite guy or Nature lover!
Fall Pine Branches and Pine Cones Bakers BoxSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Hardwood   Wood #133032, Clear #133035
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Card Stock:  Crumb Cake
Chocolate Chip
Garden Green
Big Shot:  Baker’s Box Thinlits #138279
Pretty Pines Thinlits #141851
Ribbons:  Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon #134547
Baker’s Twine Trio Pack #141999
Adhesives:  Tear & Tape
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
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.
3. Cut:
~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.
5.  Decorate:
~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.

Other:  Antique Brads  #117273
Honeycomb Embellishments  #140566
Tombow Glue
Tear & Tape Adhesive
Glue Dots

BASKET INSTRUCTIONS:
Watch this Video for basic instructions on putting the Basket together.
1.
 Cut your Blackberry Bliss at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and Farmer’s Market Designer Series Paper the same or just cut in half for a 6″ x 12″ paper.
2.  Cut your papers using your Big Shot and the Berry Basket Die.  You can cut two sheets of card stock at once, but only one sheet of Designer Series Paper at a time as the score lines will tear if you do two sheets.
3.  Glue the Blackberry Bliss and Farmers Market pieces together for the Berry Basket main parts and the handle.  Fold the score lines on the Berry Basket Parts.  Decide if you want the patterned paper on the outside or the solid color on the outside.  Lay the two Berry Basket parts together and put Tombow Glue or Tear & Tape to attach the bottom Basket Parts together.
4.  Put Tear & Tape Adhesive on the outside top edges of each Berry Basket Side.  Take the two Scallop Edge pieces.  Fold on the score lines.  Glue the small tabs to the edge of the other Scallop Edge piece to form a square.  Attach each Scallop side to a Basket side centering the Basket side.  Repeat on all four sides.
4a.  This is the way I should have done it.  Glue together a Blackberry Bliss and Farmers Market Straight Piece for the Handle.  Punch a 1/8″ Circle in the center of two opposite sides and each end of the Handle.  Attach to the Basket with the Antique Brads.
5.  If desired, use the Patterned Scallop Pieces around the inside top of the Basket to cover the Brads.
6.  Stamp the Easter Blessings in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the Deco Label Framelit leaving some space above your Easter Blessings.  Attach a Honeycomb Embellishment to the top of your Easter greeting with Glue Dots.  Attach the Deco Label with to the front of your basket with either Fast Fuse, Tear & Tape, or Tombow Glue making sure the adhesive is only on the part attaching to the basket.
7.  Fill with Easter Grass and goodies.

CARROT INSTRUCTIONS:
Pyramid Pals CarrotCarrot Top
1.  Cut out two Pyramid shapes from Tangelo Twist card stock.  Fold all score lines the same way for each piece.  Rotate the pieces over the bottom square so the plain triangles are opposite each other and the triangles with tabs are across from each other.  I found it easier to use Tombow Glue to glue the tabs behind the plain triangles.  Press firmly on the sides to make sure they stick together.
2.  Cut a 2″ square of Cucumber Crush card stock.  Add some Tear & Tape Adhesive along one edge.  This will be the bottom.  Use your Fringe Scissors to cut down to the Tear & Tape, but not past it.  Cut into 1/2″ pieces.  Attach to the center of your Carrot Top.
3.  Add to your Easter Basket.

Happy Easter!

This video is 12 minutes long.

SUPPLIES:
Gift Bag Punch Board #135862
Card Stock or Paper cut at 10″ long for a Small bag, 11″ long for a Medium Bag, and 12″ long for a Large Bag.  Cut the paper 1-1/4″ taller than you want the finished Bag height to be.  For example:  a 6″ tall piece of paper will make a Bag about 4-3/4″ high.

TIPS:
1.  Score along the 10″, 11″ or 12″ side of the paper at 1-1/4″ with either your Gift Bag Punch Board or other scoring device.
2.  Remember to Punch first, then Score.
~a. Start at the Start Line. Punch then score at the S, M, OR L  line depending on the length of your paper.  10″ long=Small.  11″ long=Medium.  12″ long=Large.  This will be the Back of your Gift Bag.
~b. Move your Score Line to the Start Line.  Punch.  Now score the side of your bag: Left side of Triangle, line down the Center of Triangle, Right side of Triangle, then the Side Line.  These 4 Score lines make the side of the Bag with the Pleat.
~c. Move the Side Score Line (the furthest to the Right) to the Start Line.  Punch.  Now score the S, M, OR L  line  to form the Front of your Bag.
~d.  Repeat Step 2b to make another Side and form the Tab for the adhesive.  Trim off the the flap part of the Tab.  Check the diagram on the Punch Board to made sure your project looks the same.
3.  Place adhesive on edge of Bottom Flaps:  Front facing up:  both Sides and Back flaps and side Tab. Turn over so the inside is facing up and put adhesive on the Front flap.  Fold in the sides first, then the Back, then the Front.  Use your Scoring Tool to press down the adhesive.

1.  Cut your card stock for the smallest box into 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Stack and cut out two layers at a time.  You will need four Envelope Liners for each box.
2.  For each Envelope Liner:
~Score one side and cut off the other side.  Just make sure you do these the same for EACH Envelope Liner.
~Score 3/8″ along the bottom of each Envelope Liner.  Cut out the little square.
~Put adhesive on the scored side tab.
3.  Measure between the cut line and the score line to determine how big to cut your square box bottom.  Put Tear & Tape around the inside edges of your box bottom.
4.  You can stamp each box side individually or after you have attached them together and they are still laying flat.  Stamp the inside flaps if desired.
5.  After the sides are attached and flat, score along the flaps so they will fold down easily.  Use the groove on your paper trimmer or Simply Scored Board to help you get your score line straight.
6.  Form the box by attaching the last side tab to the side as shown in the video.
7.  Fold all bottom tabs and attach to the box bottom squaring up all sides.
8.  Either fold the top flaps as shown OR you can fold them down onto the side of the box and attach each flap to the box side with a Dimensional.

Happy Box Making!

Adhesive:  Fast Fuse, Sticky Strip, OR Glue Dots
Paper Snips

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Choose the color of card stock you want and decide if you are making a single or double-wide box.
2.  Get your card stock ready.
~Single-Wide:  Cut your card stock 6″ x 11″.
~Double-Wide:  Fold your 8-1/2″ x 11″ in half so you have a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece.
3.  Lay your card stock on the Hamburger Box Die.
~Single-Wide:  Lay your card stock on the Die covering the box cut lines.
~Double-Wide:  Lay the fold of your card stock along the crease line furthest from the edge of your card stock edge and the open edges close to the edge of the die.  Make sure the fold does NOT cross over the crease line.
Double-Wide Hamburger Box instructions4.  Cut your card stock.  Put an Extended Cutting Plate under your die and on top of your card stock.  Run through your Big Shot.
4a.  If you want to stamp directly on the card stock do so now.
5.  Fold on all Score lines.  (Double Wide:  Unfold your card stock first, then fold all the score lines.  Run your Bone Folder along the center crease line to flatten it out.)
6.  Instead of folding all the pleat lines, I cut one side and then put the adhesive along the score line.  I have shown where I cut and put on the adhesive.
7.  Attach the triangles matching the score line with the box edge.  Repeat until all the triangles are attached.  Now attach the “Front” tab to the edge.  There are tabs that stick out on the bottom.  There are small slits on the top front to slide them through and hold the top and bottom together.
8.  Now you can decorate your box.
~I put some ribbon on the double-wide by putting sticky strip to cover the center crease line, as shown.  I used about 20 inches of ribbon and trimmed some off after tying it in a knot.
~Single Wide:  I used Thick Baker’s Twine.  Put a Glue Dot at the center back and at the ends (where the Sticky Strip ends in the example.)  You will need to either roll or scrunch the Glue Dot so it is all the way under the Baker’s Twine so it won’t stick to things.
9.  Stamp the sentiment or image you want to put on top.  Attach to the box with either Dimensionals or Glue Dots.
10.  Put in a treat or gift and give to your guy.

Happy Box Making!

This Tiny Treat Box decorated with a Punch Art Bunny is ready for Easter or a Spring Treat or small gift.  It is pretty quick to make.  Just two punches and two Markers to make it.  Yes, I did draw on the face.  You can use the Owl Punch for eyes if you want or use googly eyes.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.  You can even let the children draw the face themselves.  It will be cute whoever draws it!
Bunny Box

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes  Wood #128748, Clear #127802
And Many More  Wood #134273,  Clear #134276
Ink:  Black StazOn
Markers:  Basic Black
Blushing Bride
Punches”  1-3/4″ Circle  #119850
Large Oval  #119855
Other:  Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon #114319
Silver Ribbon  #132137
Fast Fuse
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Punch one 1-3/4″ Circle and two Large Ovals from Whisper White card stock.
2.  Color the pink parts of the Large Oval ears with your Blushing Bride Marker.
3.  Draw the eyes with your Basic Black Marker.  Draw your triangle nose with your Blushing Bride Marker.  Now draw you mouth and whiskers with the fine tip of your Basic Black Marker.
4.  Put Glue Dots on the bottom front of each ear and attach to the back of your Bunny Head.  If desired, tie a small bow with Silver Ribbon (or another color) and attach to your Bunny as a Bow Tie.
5.  Stamp the Sentiments on the top flap of your Tiny Treat Box.
6.  Measure 6″ of Organza Ribbon cutting the ends at an angle if desired.  Attach to your Tiny Treat Box sides and back with Fast Fuse.  I did fold my box to make sure which side was the front.  It is easier to put the Ribbon on the box when it is flat.
7.  Since the Bunny Head will make it hard to open your box, fold a 3″ piece of Organza Ribbon in half and staple to the lid flap of your box.
8.  Assemble your box:  The flap with the “U”, the sides, then tuck in the long flap.  Flatten from the inside if necessary.  You can put your treats or small gift in now.
9.  Now use Fast Fuse or Glue Dots to attach your Bunny to the front of your Tiny Treat Box.

Happy Easter!
