ODBD Bread Basket

Monday, December 3, 2012

Hello Friends!! I hope you all have had a great weekend!! Sorry that I am posting  so late today but I ran out of time writing a tutorial for my viewers.  I had several requests for a tutorial on how to make the Ornament treat box I posted last week.

  So today I wanted to share how I made it but instead of using the ODBD ornament, I used the new release Sparkling Snowflake and ODBD Snowflake Custom die.  At each step, I have also left the dimension for the box I created for the ornament I already posted in italics and parenthesis).  I hope you enjoy it.

For this ornament I used:
Fiskars cutter and scoring blade
1/4 inch scoretape
Vanilla Cardstock
Sky Blue cardstock (optional)
thick plastic recycled from Cuttlebug folder packaging
Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder from Winter Wonderland- pictured below (optional)
Baja Breeze, Sky Blue, and Versa Mark ink
Sparkling Snowflake stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs
Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Snowflake die manufactured by Spellbinders

Step 1:  Design your snowflake or ornament the way you would like.  Make 2 since there is two right sides on your  Snowflake Ornament treat box.  (Same for the ornament treat box)

If you are using the ODBD Snowflake dies, I noticed the Cuttlebug embossing folder almost has an exact fit for the largest within the folder.

Step 2:  Cut a 2 inch by 6 inch strip of vanilla paper and 2 squares that are a 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inch (cut a 2 1/4 by 5 1/4 piece of card stock and 2 squares that are 1 3/4 by 1 3/4 for the Ornament box)

Step 3:  Score a 1/4 inch line going lengthwise one each side. (same for the Ornament box)

Step 4: Turn the strip and score a line horizontally every 1 1/2 inches (Same for the Ornament box but score a line every 1 3/4 inches)

Step 5:  Cut slits from the edge on the scored lines like pictured below (same for the Ornaments treat box)

Step 6:  Put 1/4 inch pieces of score tape on each corner of the box as pictured below. Repeat on both sides.  Fold up sides and adhere. (same for the Ornaments treat box)

Step 7: After 2 sides and the bottom are adhered, put score tape on the edges so you can eventually finish the other 2 sides. (same for the Ornaments treat box)

Step 8:  Adhere the pre-cut Squares to the box.  (same for the Ornaments treat box)

 This is what it looks like when it is adhered.

Step 9: Put 2 strips 1 1/2 inches of score tape on each side of an 8 inch piece of ribbon for the handle or hanger. (same for the Ornaments treat box except put two strips of 1 3/4 strips score tape on a piece of 8 1/2 inch ribbon)

Step 10: Adhere ribbon in the middle of the box starting on the bottom inside (same for the Ornaments treat box)

Step 11:  Adhere your snowflake sides to both sides of the box making sure the ribbon is on the sides so it hangs straight. (same for the Ornaments treat box but use the ornament) The picture only shows one side but you need to do both sides making sure they match up.

Add Lindt chocolate and embellish as desired!!!

Here is my completed ornament:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are somehow inspired by my creation. .....and maybe even decide you would like to try my tutorial.  It is very fun and easy to create and it is a great little something with a wow factor.  Tomorrow I will share a matching card.

 Have a blessed day!!
