If you are shielding yourself from seeing new catalogue products until you have a new catalogue in your hot little hands, then don’t look at this post…….REALLY?! Who are we kidding! We can’t help ourselves can we 🙂
Todays fun project features the new Wood Crate Framelits Dies and the Wood Words stamp set. I have so many different projects flying around in my mind using this crate. It is so much fun and I’m sure you’ll agree when you order yours and start playing with it!
I really wanted to incorporate the chicken in with the crate and a light bulb turned on. How fun would it be when hosting a bbq party to have a crate with chicken toothpicks!! The chickens were stamped with Real Red and Soft Suede ink and die cut using the chicken die from the Wood Crate Framelits dies. Simply add a glue do to the end of the toothpick and attach to the back of the chicken.
These was so easy to pull together and trust me when I say not to let the crate overwhelm you. This has to be one of the easiest 3-D framelits available. Simply die cut two pieces, fold along score lines, add some adhesive to the folded tabs and base and stick together.
Chances are that if you are having a bbq party, you will have chicken and fresh veggies to eat, so the Farmers Market stamp, paired with the distressed circle image are a great addition to the front of this crate. I stamped the words in Soft Suede ink over the circle which was stamped in Crushed Curry. I then used a 1″ circle punch to punch this out.
Before I added this “label” to my crate, I wrapped some of the new Copper Ribbon (LOVE THIS RIBBON – oops, sorry for shouting but gorgeous and easy to work with!) around the crate and tied in a bow. Once this was attached I used a Stampin’ Dimensional to attach the Farmer’s Market label to the crate.
I completely forgot to mention the paper I used for the actual crate! It’s also available in the new catalogue and called Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.
What do you think of this cute project? Can you envision creating a few of these toothpick filled crates and setting out with your bbq veggies and treats?
