Happy July! Even though the first day of summer was 10 days ago, to me July is the epitome of the summer months. I think maybe because some schools don’t get out for the summer until June, and some schools go back in August. July was always the only pure summer month to me growing up. It’s also the month of my birthday, so it holds a special place in my heart.

To celebrate the first day of July, I’m sharing one of the projects I made for the display board at OnStage back in April. I used the Wood Words Bundle (Wood Words Stamp Set and Wood Crate Framelits Dies) and the ever so versatile Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. The crate contains marshmallows, because I needed something lightweight so it could be held up with velcro. But just imagine the goodies you could put in it!


Here’s what I made:

Patriotic and Festive Wood Crate with marshmallows, Wood Crate Framelits, Wood Textured DSP, Wood Words stamp set and bundle, gold binder clips by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy


Here’s what I did:

Die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits:

  • 2 crate pieces from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Stamped with the Wood Words stamp set:

  • “Fresh Treats” in Real Red ink onto each end piece of the crate
  • stars in Real Red ink onto the front of the crate

Assembled the crate:

  • folded all the score lines in the crate pieces
  • overlapped and glued together the bottoms
  • glued the flaps inside each end piece
  • put mini marshmallows in a 3″x6″ Gusseted Bag and closed with a Gold Binder Clip
  • put bag in crate along with some red crinkled gift bag filler I had left over. You could also cut Real Red CS into skinny strips and crinkle them up with your hands


Here is today’s color:
