This week the CTC Crew are CASE-ing their favourite Big Shot project from the brand new Holiday Catalogue.

This Halloween treat box on page 50 caught my eye, so I decided to create a Christmas version.
I die cut the 2 panels of my Baker's Box base from Crumb Cake card stock . On one panel of the box, I added the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the strips of Real Red card stock on either side and then die cut the circle in the centre of the largest panel. While the panel was still flat I also stamped 'wishes' at the top. I then added the DSP to the sides of the second panel and assembled the box. This is the finished project. I was really happy with the way it turned out.
I wanted a bit more room for my bag of yummy spice cookies, so I cut away the scored 'milk carton' piece from the sides of the Baker's Box before I assembled it. You can see this better in the next photo. I also wanted to add a simple tag to my gift box and there are so many fabulous tag options to choose from. I decided to keep with the round theme using the Layered Circles Framelits. I cut my gold embossed greeting from the 'Tin of Tags' stamp set with the same scalloped circle that I used to surround my window on the front. I then matted it on the next size plain circle in Real Red and then onto the bauble from the new 'Merry Tag' framelits cut in Crumb Cake. I love the end result and how it coordinates so well with the rest of the project. I attached it to the handle with the red Baker's Twine from Candy Cane Lane duo pack.
Here is a close-up of the details on the front of the Baker's Box. I have stamped the 'Christmas' banner from the 'Time of Year' Hostess stamp set and die cut it with the Bunch of Banners framelits and popped it up. I added some little 1/8" gold foil dots to either side of the 'wishes' to make it stand out a bit more. The gingerbread person is stamped in Early Espresso and I added some little gold foil hearts punched from the Heart Confetti border punch to his front. The box is closed with a piece of the Stitched Edge ribbon that is tied with 2 strands of the lovely red metallic baker's twine.
Finally, here is the Baker's Box with the bag of 8 spice cookies next to it. You can see I have left the window 'open', but you could add a small piece of Window Sheet over it, if you prefer. I've added some Candy Cane Lane washi to the top edge of the cello bag (CASE-ed from page 4 of the Holiday catty) and tied it with both of the twines from the Candy Cane Lane duo pack. My crunchy spice cookies (called Speculaas in Europe) are not gingerbread, but have that lovely Christmas spice flavour and are perfect with warm drinks - we love them with Chai latte made with fresh coconut milk. They contain cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, mace, aniseed and white pepper. We first tried these cookies when we visited Copenhagen in 2013 as they are added to the saucer with every cup of coffee. I found this healthy version last year and they have become a staple in our cupboard - too yummy to just have for Christmas!
