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.

Welcome Sign

I saw a Welcome Sign at Target that inspired me to make this sign.  It is pretty quick to make.  Choose your own colors to match your decor.
"wood" Welcome SignSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Hardwood  Wood #133032, Clear #133035
Ink:  Soft Suede
Card Stock:  Soft Suede
Real Red
Big Shot:  Large Letters Framelits #141712
Punch:  1/4″ Circle (retired – buy from your local store)
Ribbon:  Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon #141984  12″
Adhesives:  Fast Fuse or SNAIL
Tombow Glue
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Soft Suede card stock into one 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece and two 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ pieces.
2.  Ink up your stamp and lay Rubber side up.  Lay one 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ sheet of card stock on top of the inked stamp.  Rub the stamp with a clear stamp block to transfer the ink evenly to your card stock.
~Repeat with the other piece of card stock.
3.  Now cut each stamped card stock piece 2-1/8″ x 5-1/2″.  Arrange them on the 4-1/4″ x 11″ card stock.  Attach them.  This is your “Wood Sign”.
4.  Cut out your Letters with your Big Shot and the Letter Dies.  Arrange the Letters on the “Wood Sign”.  Glue on.
5.  Punch a 1/4″ hole towards both top corners.  Thread your Ribbon though the holes.  (I cut 12″ of Ribbon-use more if desired.) I used Glue Dots to hold my Ribbon in place.
6.  Hang up your Wood Welcome Sign and admire it!
