This week’s projects focus on the Baker’s Box Thinlits. Today it is decorated for Halloween, Wednesday is Fall, and Friday is Christmas. Hope you enjoy having fun making and decorating your own Baker’s Boxes!
INSTRUCTIONS: Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions. 1. Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Tip Top Taupe card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
~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. 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.
~Tie closed with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
