You Can Do This-Celebrate You and Wood Words Thank You Gift

Yesterday's blog hop, Anything But A Card Blog Hop, was great fun - only minor technical difficulties - and a huge success. Be sure to check back often to learn about March's Sale-A-Bration blog hop. I cannot wait.

Today I would like to share tips and tricks for putting together this adorable thank you gift.


Stampin' Up! makes gift packaging so easy. Here are 3 tips to help you make your own wood crate.

#1 - The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack is 6x6. To get both cuts of the wood crate from one sheet so that the wood grain goes in the same direction, flip the die cut 180 on the second run. The overlap of the bottom sections of the wood crate creates a missing small rectangle piece. It will not make any difference in its integrity. Cut a matching rectangle from some coordinating scrap cardstock and adhere to the bottom of the crate to cover the missing section.

#2 - Wait for stamping until after die cutting both of the sections that create the crate.  Otherwise, the slots of the crate may cut out your stamped sentiment ("thank").

#3 - Use a Bone Folder to burnish the score lines for straight, crisp folds and Tear & Tape Adhesive to strengthen the wood crate.


In this second photo, I included this cute, tall box using the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies [AC, p. 26/212, Item no. 141473].  Maybe it is a little hard to see from the photo that the word "Celebrate" die cut in Dapper Denim is layer on one die cut in the 2017-19 In Color Lemon Lime Twist.
