Cookies are in the oven! Mmmmm………..
Today the ATS design team is previewing my 2 new sets….”Cookie Jar” and “Cookie Jar-gon”! I just *had* to do a cookie set, dontcha think? :0)
My first set, Cookie Jar, has seven different cookies, 2 girls and several other cookie related images. The second set, Cookie Jar-gon, has lots of cookie sentiments. The images come in a tin and the words will be in a baggie. BUT…if you get both sets, once they are trimmed they will both *just fit* perfectly in the tin! It is packed full! :0) *scroll to the end of this post for info on the blog candy*
Here are some separate pics of the card and box…you can click on the thumbnails to make them bigger.
For my project today, I have to say that I was inspired by Lauren Meader’s oven here. I didn’t make mine the same way though. I started out with one of the cupcake boxes from All That Scraps. And when it was completed, I filled it with some Peanut Blossoms….one of my favorite kinds!
This box is for the mini cupcakes and the window is on the top and front of the box. So I just needed to make a stove top to cover the top part of the window. I scored and folded a tiny edge onto the front of the stovetop and then scored and folded the back section up. See the close-up pic below for more details.
The box sides were folded together opposite from the way they normally go. I folded the solid flap to the outside and attached it with Scor-tape so that the inter-locking flaps would not show.
I framed the front window by die-cutting a piece of cardstock with the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. Then I cut a window in it by trimming out the center with my Fiskars paper trimmer. This could also be done with just a ruler and a craft knife.
Here are some close-ups of the oven.
All of the paper used (except the white and the dp on the oven mitts) is from the DCWV Summer Glitter stack, so this oven really sparkles!
The “knobs” on the back were made with some old mesh heart eyelets that I found in my stash. It’s amazing what you can find when you start searching, isn’t it? LOL.
The burners were made by cutting circles with the circle Nestabilities. Then I attached some circle clips onto each one with a brad. This was the hardest part of the whole box….trying to figure out how to attach the “coils”!
The cookie tray and spatula are images from the Cookie Jar stamp set. They were colored with Copic markers. And the words are from the Cookie Jar-gon set. I lightly stamped the heart cookie overtop of the words in pink.
The oven mitt that is in some other pics is also from the set. It was stamped onto patterned paper and attached to the front of the stove.
In this pic you can see that the box lid opens from the back of the oven. I wanted to cover and support the area where the back of the stovetop meets the box flap, so I attached an additional piece of pink paper. Then I decorated the back a bit with the heart cookie and another sentiment from Cookie Jar-gon.
I hope you liked this project! I thought it would be a fun way to give a gift of cookies. I didn’t talk about the card, but I think it’s pretty self-explanatory.
