Bakery Style Box

Hi everyone 🙂

Today I would like to share with you a fantastic box that I found on Elaine Jackson’s site. Its called a Bakery Style Box and is an absolutely brilliant sized. I’m going to fill my boxes with home made biscuits for my sisters and sister-in-law for Christmas.


I made my box a little bit longer than hers, but its still made the same way and as you can see, you could fit quite a lot inside of this box.

So here are the measurements , cutting diagram and video:

Card stock: 12′ x 12′

score on one side @ 2-1/2′, 5′, 7-1/2′ & 10′

turn to 90 degree and score @ 2-1/2′ & 9-1/2′

Matting panels cut 3 @ 6-3/4′ x 2-1/4′ and cut 1 @ 6-3/4′ x 1-3/4′

Paper panel cut 3 @ 6-5/8′ x 2-1/8′ and cut 1 @ 6-5/8′ x 1-5/8′

the finished measurements for this box are: 2-1/2′ x 2-1/2′ x 7′


Cut away the purple shaded in areas, as shown in the diagram.

I hope that you give this box a go,

so till next time,

Keep on creating 🙂



Perfectly Pine Quick Card

HI everyone 🙂

I hope that this blog finds you all well.

Last week I had just come back from the Close to My Heart Convention in Adelaide, and what a fantastic time I had with all the others consultants.

So while I was convention, I received some other great news, that my youngest daughter had gone into labor  on the Friday, so I waited patently all weekend to find out who my new grandchild would be as Chloe would not find out what she was having.

Well 5 days later our newest family member arrived.

Bonnie Rae arrived on Wednesday  19th October @ 7:34 pm. 6Lb 6oz (2.9kg)

  2. On the front right hand side, measure down 3-1/2’ and in at 1-1/4’ and make a cross for placement of the star.
  3. Place the star over the top of the cross so that it’s in the middle of the star and run through the Big Shot.
  4. Taking the Merry & Bright stamp. Stamp on to the top left hand side in Juniper or Sea Glass ink.
  5. Taking a journal pen and a ruler. Draw a line from the top down to the top of the star.
  6. Using glue dots on the wrong side of the star cut out, place the glitter paper over the cut out.
