It's Christmas in July at Taylored Expressions and today, members of the Baker's Dozen are featuring Christmas creations or gifts for Christmas that incorporate the rectangular Perfect Packages! The rectangular Perfect Packages are sized perfectly for standard A2-sized card and envelope sets! What's even better is that they fold flat for easy storage until you're ready to use them! I just LOVE them!
For my project today, I almost made a card set with matching envelopes, but I decided to create a homemade holiday gift instead. . . and two versions of that. :) I used the Home Sweet Home set for the outside of the box and a sentiment from the Season's Sweetings set for the inside of the box. I thought this sentiment would be PERFECT for the gift! I also used the Polka Dot Frame Spellbinders set for the frame on the front of the box and Labels Four Nestabilities for the inside.
For the "first version" I made mini cupcakes decorated for Christmas and inserted them into a tray that I made to fit the bottom of the box and the cupcakes. These cupcakes are really simple to make and go further since you can fit half a dozen in each box.
The "second version" is a little more time-consuming. A little while ago, my sweet friend and fellow Baker's Dozen team member, Donna, made these Cupcake Bites that I thought were ADORABLE! I HAD to use them for this project. They are absolutely delicious and really impress people! All of the dipping and freezing takes extra time, but they are definitely worth it for your candy-loving friends! I put a piece of wax paper in the bottom of the box and then added the Christmas-decorated Cupcake Bites.
Both versions make a great Christmas gift, especially wrapped up in this Perfect Package! Be sure to check out what other members of the Baker's Dozen have created for the Christmas in July Blog Hop. . .I know they'll have awesome ideas to share with you!
