INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score down the 8-1/2″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″. Score the 5-1/2″ side at 2″. Cut up the 5-1/2″ side to the 2″ score line. Cut out the 1/2″ rectangle flap. 2. Place 3 box sections in the embossing folder. Fold the bottom flaps under the embossing folder (so they will stay flat). Run through your Big Shot. Now line up the last box section in the embossing folder, folding the bottom flaps down again. Finger crease all the score lines trying not to flatten your embossing. 3. Flatten the embossing on the 1/2″ side flap. Lay the outside side up and put Tear & Tape on the side flap. 4. Choose which side will be the Front. Turn the box over so the inside side is facing up. Put Tear & Tape alon the fold and edge of the front flap and the side flaps. The back flap does not need tape. 5. Remove the tape backing from the side tab. Lay down and attach to the opposite edge as shown in the video. Now remove the tape backing from the bottom flaps. Fold in the back flap, then the side flaps, then the front flap. Put your Bone Folder inside the box and rub so the Tape sticks well to all the bottom flaps. 6. Stamp the leaf on Whisper White. Use Crushed Curry for the more solid stamp, and Pumpkin Pie ink for the lined stamp. Fussy cut the leaf out. Punch a Starburst from Pumpkin Pie card stock. Attach leaf. Attach Punch to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 7. Tie your ribbon around the box using Glue Dots at the corners and/or under the bow if necessary to hold it in place. 8. Put in your treats or gift and bring a smile to someone today!
1. Cut out two of the Wood Crate pieces from a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Soft Sky card stock. 2. Lay them flat on scratch paper so both pieces are facing the same direction and look identical. Fold the Side Tabs and add Tear & Tape to all four Side Tabs. Add Tear & Tape to the long side of ONE Crate Bottom as shown in the video. 3. Stamp the flowers in Marina Mist ink covering all of the die cuts on both pieces. No you do not have to stamp the bottom, but it will look nice if you do. 4. Assemble. Attach the two bottom sections first. Then attach the bottom side flap to the side, the the side flap to the side. Repeat with the other side. 5. Decorate. Stamp on Whisper White cardstock with Pacific Point ink: one design, one saying. Cut out the design with the coordinating Framelit. Cut out the saying with scissors. Attach both to the Crate with Glue Dots.

I used some Gold Baker’s Twine from the Holiday Catalog. Choose what you want. Adhesives: Tear & Tape
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut out two of the Popcorn Box Thinlits with your Big Shot from Sweet Sugarplum card stock. Use the Scallop Edgelit included to cut the top part of your box pieces so the top of your box will be scalloped. Also cut out a small tag from Sweet Sugarplum card stock. 2. Fold all the score lines on the box pieces. Stamp in Rich Razzleberry ink if desired. 3. Put Tear & Tape on the
~side tabs. Attach the two Box pieces together at the side tabs. Decide which part of the box will be the front. The bottom flap attached to the front will be attached last.
~Bottom Side Flaps: Along the score lines and edges on the outside of the box
~Bottom Back Flap needs no adhesive added.
~Bottom Front Flap: Along the edge on the inside of the box. 4. Now fold in the Bottom Flaps in this order: sides, back, front. Yea! You have finished your Box! Now to decorate it. 5. Cut about 20″ of ribbon. This should give you enough to go around the box and make a nice size bow. Fold the ribbon in half and put SNAIL adhesive directly on the ribbon on the 4″ or so on each side of the ribbon. Now attach the ribbon to the box starting with the center of the ribbon on the back center of your box. Place the ribbon gently in place in case you need to readjust it. Make sure the adhesive is on the ribbon as it touches the box corners in the front. Now tie your bow. 6. Stamp your tag in Rich Razzleberry ink. I also sponged the edges in the Rich Razzleberry ink. Punch a hole in the tag if desired or just attach it under the ribbon with a couple of glue dots. If you punched a hole, thread the Baker’s Twine through the hole and tie it around the knot in your bow. 7. Fill with treats or a small gift.
Enjoy surprising your family and friends with treats in Popcorn boxes. If the box is for a guy, just leave off the ribbon.

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.

~~~Back: Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V. 2. Cut:
~Cut two Trees from Chocolate Chip card stock. The bottom and sides of the “ground” don’t cut. Cut them straight so the ground will wrap around the bottom of your box.
~Cut two large bats and two small bats from Basic Black card stock.
~Stamp two ghosts in Memento Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Cut them out with the coordinating Framelit. 3. Assemble your Box: Attach the side Tabs. Now for the bottom flaps: sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last. 4. Decorate:
~Choose the front of your Box. Glue the Tree to the center front wrapping the ground around to the left side. Cut it off at the right side, depending on how you cut the ground on your trees.
~Hold up your second tree so it shows about half the branches sticking out from the side. Add Glue to the half of the tree that will be glued to the Baker’s Box. Attach making sure the Glue is all on the box and the unglued branches are sticking out the side. Now attach and trim your ground around the bottom of the box.
~Glue on your ghosts and bats.

Do you need a little Fall Themed basket? Choose some Fall Themed paper and make one using the Berry Basket Bigz Die and your Big Shot. Watch the Video to find out how quick and easy it is to make one (or more)! Have fun making a variety of these cute Berry Baskets for every occasion!
TIPS: 1. Cutting measurements
~Cut two Designer Series Paper: 3-1/2″ x 8″ (or a little longer than 8″) Yes, you can cut them at the same time. Just make sure both pieces cover the Basket die cut markings.
~Cut two 1-1/2″ x 8″ Daffodil Delight card stock for the Scallop and Handle die cuts.
~Cut one Thick Whisper White bottom piece 2-3/4″ x 2-7/8″ Attach to the inside of the very bottom piece in the center between the cut outs. Attach the upper piece over it to form a +. 2. Choose either the Scallop or Straight handles to attach to the top of the basket. Fold the Score Lines. Add adhesive to the small tabs and attach together to form a square. 3. Add adhesive to the top edge of each side of the basket. Attach to one side of the topper piece, centering the basket side and the topper piece. Repeat with one side at a time until finished. 4. Add about 1/2″ of adhesive to the handle piece. Center (and make sure it is going straight up and not at an angle) and attach the first side then the other side. 5. Fill with lightweight treats or fill with decorative items and leave setting on a table just to enjoy looking at it.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1.Watch this video for instructions on making the Baker’s Box. 2. Wrap Washi Tape around the lower edge of the box about 1/8″ above the bottom. 3. Stamp the Witch’s Hat in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White card stock. Cut out with the coordinating Framelit. 4. Cut the BOO! out of Basic Black card stock with the Framelit and your Big Shot and Glue onto the top front of your BOO! Box. 5. Color your Owl stamp with Markers: Black for the eye centers, Tangerine Tango for the claws/feet (and color in the beak after you stamp), Chocolate Chip for the owl body and wings. Remember to open your mouth wide and breathe moist air onto your stamp several times to remoisten the ink. Stamp. Then cut out with the coordinating Framelit. I used Tombow to glue the body to the box front. I did NOT put Tombow on the Owl head above the black eye dots! 6. Fill with treats or a small gift and tie closed with about 10″ of ribbon.
1. Choose either Gold OR Silver OR Red as your color. The 2015 Holiday Catalog has Red Foil Paper so you can also choose Red if you want to. 2. Cutting the pieces ~Use the Largest Floral Frames Framelit to cut a Gold OR Silver Glimmer Paper Flower. ~Use the third Floral Frames Framelit to cut a Gold OR Silver Foil Paper Flower. NOTE: use this sandwich in your Big Shot: Magnetic Platform, cutting plate, Foil Paper with white side down/foil side up, Framelit with cutting edge down, card stock to cover entire piece of Foil Paper, top cutting plate. The Foil Paper will pick up any dents and cracks on your cutting pad. Putting a piece of card stock between the cutting pad and Foil Paper will prevent this. ~Punch a 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. ~Cut your Ribbon large enough to go on the inside of the box. The length I cut for the Shirt Boxes was about 22″. 3. The Tag ~Stamp your sentiment on regular Whisper White card stock. Punch out with the decorative label punch (or other punch or die cut).
~Cut your Tag Base at 2″ (slightly less than 2″) x 4-1/4″ (or however long you need it for your sentiment plus at least 2″ if you are using both the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and the Banner Triple Punch. If you are just going to round the bottom corners, then just adding 1″ or so should be good.) ~Now punch the ends of your Tag Base: Use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch on one end. Use either the Banner Triple Punch OR the Corner Rounder Punch on the other end. You can use White Bakers Twine to tie a Bow or use as fringe through the Tag hole. 4.Now to put everything together. Decide where you want the Ribbon, the Flower, and the Tag to go.
~Attach the Ribbon to the Box lid with some Tear & Tape Adhesive. I used about 4″ on each end so the ribbon would be secure on the side-both outside and inside the box. Try to get it straight or put it at an angle.
~Assemble your Flower: If desired your can put Demensionals on the back of each petal on the Floral Frames Flower layers. Put Tombow Glue on the back centers of each Flower piece so the pieces will stay attached. Glimmer Paper is very picky about which adhesives it will stick to. One of the ladies brought Zots Glue Dots and the pieces did not stay together. Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots don’t work well either. ~Attach your Flower to the Box with Tombow Glue at least in the center. You can use Dimensionals on the petal ends if you want some Dimension. ~Attach your Tag with either Glue Dots or Dimensionals. ~Embellish with Basic Rhinestones. 5. Fill with your Gift. We finished decorating 12 Boxes in less than an hour. Once the cutting is done and you have made one box, it goes pretty quickly.

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.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Place on your Fry Box die. Put a cutting plate under and on top. Run through your Big Shot. Fold all score lines. 2. Lay your box flat on the Stampin’ Pierce Mat so your stamps will stamp properly with a good impression. Use your folded score lines to help position your stamps. Use Real Red ink to stamp the striped stamp three times: on the front of the short side, and on both sides of the tall side. Now stamp “Enjoy! on the back inside (so you will be able to see it from the front). 3. Stamp “Sweet Treats” in Real Red ink on Thick Whisper White card stock. Cut out with scissors. Use Dimensionals to attach it to the front of your Fry Box. 4. Crease all straight score lines with a Bone Folder. Crease the rounded score lines with your fingers. 5. Add Tear & Tape Adhesive to the inside of the front tabs. Attach to back tabs making sure the bottom of the tabs line up straight. 6. Now add treats! You can add them loose or use a 4″ x 6″ Cellophane Bag and some ribbon or twine to keep everything from spilling.
Oliver is my almost 6 year-old grandson. Here are a couple of the projects he has made while visiting me.
The first project is his version of the Dinosaur card posted HERE. He used the No Bones About It stamp set. He chose the card stock colors and chose the Woodgrain embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot himself. He also die cut the Ovals. He chose the ink colors (Pumpkin Pie and Memento Black) and did stamping himself. He glued it all together with Tombow Glue. He is very pleased with how everything looks. His second project is made with the NEW Gift Bag Punch Board. He chose Wild Wasabi card stock, the Bravo stamp set, and Memento Black ink. The ribbon is from my retired box. He did all the scoring himself (with me telling him where to score). He was not strong enough to do the punching himself, but was pleased with how it turned out. I also add the Tear & Tape Adhesive for him. Happy Summer Crafting with your Family!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Choose the color and pattern of paper you want to use. I chose Mint Macaron. If you are using the striped paper choose the way you want your stripes to go. If you want them up and down like mine, then cut your paper 6″ x 12″ with the stripes 12″ long. The zigzag part of the Thinlit is the top of the bag. 2. Now cut out the Mini Treat Bag using the Thinlit. Make sure the zigzag bag top is positioned so your stripes will be going up and down. Cut out both bag pieces. 3. Fold your Treat Bag pieces on the score lines. Check to see if any of the score lines tore. If they did, the put a piece of regular tape on the inside of the bag over the torn score line OR you could put coordinating Washi Tape on the outside to cover the torn score line. 4. Decide whether the bottom flap will be inside or outside the bag. If it will be on the inside than fold up the flap and put your Fast Fuse on the striped side. If it will be on the outside, then put your adhesive on the solid color AFTER the rest of the bag is put together. 5. Put Fast Fuse on the striped side of the tab and on the edge of the small bag half. Line up the side and bottom. Now attach the tab to the large side edge. Lay the small side flat and overlap the back of the larger back piece. 6. If your flap is going on the outside, add your adhesive now and fold it up. 7. Stamp your sentiment in the same color ink as your paper. Cut it out by hand. Optional: Stamp your image twice. Cut out the inside with the coordinating Framelit included with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit set. You will still have to hand cut the larger outside bottom layer, but this will add a nice layered dimension to your Treat Bag. 8. Cut your Ribbon the desired length with the ends cut diagonal as desired. Attach with a strip or two of SNAIL or Fast Fuse on the back of the Ribbon behind where the Stamped image will cover it. Add your Stamped and cut out image with either Fast Fuse or Dimensionals. 9. Put a small treat or gift inside and give to someone.
