Home Baked Only For You

 Hello friends! Welcome and thanks for stopping by.
I´m back after a super busy weekend, I have not been able to find a single minute so I could sneak off to create something.
It´s time for my third week as a guest designer for Tuesday Throwdown, and this week My Creative Classroom are sponsoring the challenge which has a cutting corners theme for us to follow. One lucky winner will receive a free seat to a class of their choice.
Here´s my take on it, and I have altered a gift box. I used the wonderful Romantic Collection papers from Prima, and metal corners that I first thought about doing something different with, but decided not to do it, I actually like them the way they are.
I had planned to fill it with some good chocolate, but the time ran away so I had to take what I had, and that is a BIG muffin.

The sentiment from Rox Stamps was stamped with coffee archival ink.
The chipboard bird was first painted with alcohol ink, then I mixed clear embossing pouder and a little glitter, then I heated in. For a rougher look I painted with white acrylic paint and then sanded the edges.
Chitchat words from Tim Holtz was adhered around the box lid, and that´s about it I think.
I hope you will play along in this cutting corner challenge, pleace visit them here.
Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit
