Now I will admit that for this sweet project I did use the retired clothespins and lace doily (I like the one currently available but need to use up my old stash before I buy more!)
The crate was created using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack. I like the variety of wood designs that come in this package. I cut a portion of the Lace Doily and folded it over the top edge of the crate.
On Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the heart image in Real Red ink, and the weathered circle image in Daffodil Delight ink before stamping my sentiment over this in Archival Basic Black ink. I used the Wood Crate framelits dies to cut out the heart and a 1″ Circle Punch for the sentiment.
Rather than attaching it permanently to the crate, I used the clothespin to attach it. The idea behind this is so that the recipient may remove them and use these on a project of their own.
Next I filled a 4″ x 6″ cello bag (no longer available but you can get the 3″ x 6″ gusseted cello bag instead) with Sweet Tart candies and attached a bow to seal it, using the Copper Trim ribbon.
