Ink:  Real Red
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Red Glimmer Paper #121790

Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions.
1.  Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
2.  Choose the Washi Tape pattern you like and apply next to the fold lines as shown in photo.
3.  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.
4. Punch and assemble Poinsettia Flower.
~Punch 4 times from Red Glimmer Paper.
~Fold all flower pieces in half length-wise with a Bone Folder so your flower will have some dimension.
~Attach two of the small double flowers that look like a funny bow tie in the center with a Glue Dot or two.
~Attach the four medium petals in between the smaller petals that you already attached.  Use at least two Glue Dots.
~Now add the four large petals so they line up with the small center petals.  If you want your flower to look more round add two more large petals.
~My flower was not holding together well so I criss-crossed Tear & Tape across the back of the large and medium Petals, then attached it to the front of the box.
~Add two of the + pieces to the center with the white side showing.  Use a Glue Dot in the center of each and attach to the Flower center.
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.  Finish:
~Stamp Merry Christmas on Whisper White card stock in Real Red ink.  Cut out with the Desired Tags & Labels Framelit.  Make sure and use the Small Circle Framelit to cut out the hole.  Or you can use a 1/4″ Hole Punch like I did.  Tie it onto the front hole in your Baker’s Box.  Use a Glue Dot to hold it in position.
~Tie your Baker’s Box closed with the 3/4″ Real Red Ribbon.

4.  Cut two 2″ pieces of White Glitter Ribbon.  Tuck them under the center side of the Cucumber Crush Deco Label Framelit using Glue Dots.  Layer the Stamped image onto the Cucumber Crush with Dimensionals.  Attach them to the card front with Dimensionals.  Trim Ribbon if needed.
