The Fruit Crate - no die required

A crate to hold fruit (or fruit flavored candy!)   There’s a photo of a fruit crate in the annual catalog on page 127 which I copied!   And in the new catalog there's a cute die to make a small crate - but here's the how to (no die needed!)

The crate is 8 ½ x 3 scored at 2 ¼ from each end, punch the ends with the Classic Label Punch.  I cut it all out and used the wood stamp from Timeless Textures all over the crate and crate pieces.

For the crate side pieces I cut a piece 4 x 5, scored at ½ from each side (the 5” side) and stamped, added 2 strips of sticky strip and then cut it into 4 1” strips for the sides of the crate.  You can sponge the edges of your crate pieces if you wish.    I added a piece of the fruit designer paper (2 ¾ square on top of a doily). 

I used a medium cello bag and put a piece of thick whisper white cut 2 ¾ x 2 at the bottom of the cello bag to keep it flat.  I then filled it with red skittles.  With a solid cardstock (I used Emerald Envy cut 3 x 2 ½ folded in half) I covered the opening, stapled it closed and then put the top piece of designer paper cut 2 ¾ x 1 on the Emerald Envy.     

The card 3 ½ x 5 has the matching designer paper layered on top of Emerald Envy (3 ¼ x 4 3/4) on a notecard with DSP 3 x 4 x ½   My mom doesn’t like words on the outside… so I put them on the inside!
