Hello Friends. I hope you are having a very pleasant and abundant Thanksgiving. I have much to be thankful including wonderful customers like you.
To express my gratitude to good friends, I made these bread boxes and filled them with pumpkin bread. I got the idea from Jennifer Svare, a design team member for Poppystamps. You can read her blog post and see her video here. Here's a close-up photo:
The boxes themselves are actually quite easy to make, however the decorating did take a while. I created the box structure, embossed the same cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder (Darice) then mounted the embossed panel on to copper metallic cardstock. These panels were taped to all four sides of the box.
The pumpkins (Poppystamp dies Harvest Pumpkin and Swirl Pumpkin) were cut from orange and copper cardstock, respectively. I distressed the orange Harvest Pumpkin die cut then glued the Swirl Pumpkin over it. The leaf vines were cut with the Poppystamps Oak Leaf Oval Collage die and enhanced with more leaves cut with the Impression Obsession die Oak Leaves and Rake.
Finally the "wings" on the top of the box were 2" strips of cardstock cut with the Poppystamps die Eyelet Stitches. After I cut the border design I scored the stips at 1" and folded them on the score line then taped them inside the box.
If you are interested in making some, I am happy to answer any questions you have. Jennifer has a PDF on her blog with all the measurements.
