Wrapping a Baker's Box

Sometimes you need more than a card and Stampin' Up! has some great gift packaging.  The Baker's Box is one of my favorites.  It's food safe, has a window at the top and is a great size - 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" x 2 1/8".  I was asked to do a display for a recent Stampin' Up! local Demo event and I knew that it would be my first project.

 I "build" my bouquet on a circle of card stock, separate from the Baker's Box.  I made some paper flowers using Whisper White Card Stock and the Magnolia Memory Dies and the Perennial Flower Punch. I used a sponge dauber and Daffodil Delight ink to accent the centers of the flowers. Two of the flowers are large scallop circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I hand cut it into a spiral and rolled  them into a flower, hot glue holds them together.  I used the white Flax Ribbon and fashioned a ribbon flower.  

The leaves use the Magnolia Memory Dies and are cut from Mossy Meadow Card Stock. The white sprigs were cut using the Detailed Peacock Dies.  The flower centers were cut from Magnolia Memory Dies and I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the centers.  I added some loops of White Baker's Twine.  I used hot glue to attach all of the elements.

I wrapped a length of Flax ribbon around the box, leaving some long tails.  The bouquet is hot glued to that ribbon so you can slide the whole thing off.  I put some of our local Wildflour Bakery cookies it it.

I hope the friend I gave this to enjoys it as much I enjoyed making it!

Over the years I've used this style to wrap a lot of presents.  I used whatever I find, strips of linen or silk, burlap, or wide ribbon.  One of my favorites are rolled flowers from book pages.  Stampin' Up! used to sell a die and it is a favorite of mine!  Here are a couple examples.
