Just For You

Please scroll down or click here for my Paper Made Bakery Kit post

Hello!  I am so glad you stopped by today.  This is the second post with a tutorial today, so bear with me, there are a lot of pics to wade through!  For my project, I used a super cute image from Birdie Brown, who is sponsoring us this week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge.  Check out her super cute images here.  Torico is offering three fabulous images to the winner this week!  Yeah!

I chose the super fun Little Chef image and put him on a tag.  The tag is then attached to a little cake box, which could hold all manner of goodies.  You can find the templates here.

To begin, I printed my box onto white cardstock.

I then cut it out.

Taking a houndstooth stamp from GinaK, designed by the lovely Nina Bracket, I stamped it all over the box in Fresh Ink Melon Pigment ink.

I then scored at the fold lines.

Added Scor-tape and put it together.

I then wrapped some Divine Twine in black from the shop around the top of the box and set it aside to work on the tag.

For the tag, I notched the top with my Corner Chomper and punched a hole with my Crop-o-dile.

I then colored part of my image with Copic markers.

Finished it off by paper-piecing his shirt...and stamping a little sentiment

And finally attaching the tag to my box.

Phew!  You made it through!  Thank you so much for sticking with me.  I do hope you will join us this week because if there is one technique that is fun to do it is paper-piecing!
