HOW TO MAKE A BAKERY BOX + WHEN LESS IS MORE

Thursday, December 19, 2013
Remember that I get to share how I'm using We R Memory Keepers products as a mama? This month I (very excitedly) used the slick bakery box template and threw together those dainty boxes for our neighbors' Christmas treats. Aesthetics options with this die are as infinte as scrapbook paper styles. I can make a box for any occassion, with any look that I want. I like that. 

Here's the how-to: 

Get the 12x12 scrapbook paper of your dreams (mine comes from this craft store) - one sheet makes up two boxes. The Evolution Tool dubs as a letterpress, embossing, and die-cutting machine - I obviously used its die-cutting skills for this one. 

The process is so easy and so fast: place the die on the cutting platform, put your paper over the die, put your mat over the paper (I used Mat A - it's for thin metal dies - it comes with the cutting platform)...

Run it through the Evolution Tool...
Peel the excess paper away...
And tape the box together. Voila! 
Fill the box with the simple gift of your dreams!
We're delivering these tonight. I mean, there's only SIX days till Christmas. Which brings me to another thought I've been sitting on...sometimes less is more. 

I'm coming to the end of my "Christmas Preparations" rope - the end of my time, energy, creaitivty, and money - so thank heaven it clicked with me that sometimes less is more. This song, "In the Bleak Midwinter," came through my Pandora station, and so soothingly, it brought back the purpose of gifts to my heart: to give love. If my giftees can feel that I love them, that's all that matters. That's what matters! Hallelujah.
