           Instructions: (Hint- I cut the words off each stamp in my set and use the words separately when I need them. If you don’t want to cut off the words, you can use So Saffron and Wisteria Wonder markers to color just the images and stamp them on the cards)1.    Print recipes 4 to a page and cut them out at 5-1/2” x 4-1/4”. This box can fit 18-20 recipe cards.
2.    Stamp baking images in top right corners of the recipe cards using So Saffron and Wisteria Wonder ink. Add a strip of DSP to the bottom of each card.
3.    Stamp oven mitt in So Saffron and “Baking Makes Life Sweeter” in Wisteria Wonder. Cut out using Big Shot and Stitched Shapes circle framelit.
4.    Create a box by scoring the 9” square DSP in the Envelope Punch board by punching/scoring at 3-5/8” AND 4-1/2” on the first side, then turning the paper 45 degrees and lining up the first score lines to punch and score. Repeat until all 4 sides have been punched and scored twice. Round the corners of all points on the top of the punch board.
5.    Cut off the small squares on the inside corners of your envelope/box and fold in on all the score lines to create a box. Adhere using Fast Fuse, leaving top of box open.
6.    Insert recipe cards into box and fold top down.
7.    Wrap Wisteria DSP around the box and adhere to itself in the front to create a belly band that can slide off. Attach “Baking” circle to the front using dimensionals to hide the seam.
