WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21

For today's post I will be sharing a few crate projects using the Wood Crate Framelits Die.




This is the basic crate.  We made the little note card holder at On Stage in April.
The second one uses one of the Dies from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits with a little Copper Ribbon.
the one in front uses Soft Sky card stock instead of the DSP.  I cut out the two pieces of crate first and then stamped on the with the Woodgrain Background Stamp.  Using card stock makes the crate a little more sturdy, depending on what you might want to put in it.

I LOVE the This Little Piggy Stamp Set and thought of this cute little guy right away when I saw the Crate Die.  I used Watercolor Paper stamped with Archival Ink so that it was a little easier to color him in with my ink pad and an Aqua Painter.  It says "hogs and kisses" so I filled the crate with Hershey Kisses. 
For the second project, I just turned the crate upside down after making and created a little trunk where the kitty and the flowers could sit.  The kitty, basket and flowers are from the Sitting Here Stamp Set.

I found a video here to show you how to put the crate together and also give you a couple more ideas.

Come back on Friday to see a card using the crate as an inside pop-up card.
