Rachel- Eat Me

Basically we always have a ton of food that we would not normally have BUT come the new year I'm needing to start a diet. So I made this crate to help with my new years resolution to diet by inviting others to help polish off the goodies it contains!

Eat Me
by Rachel Burgess

Wooden crate
White emulsion paint
Fancy Pants happy Holidays Candy Cane 12x12 patterned paper
Fancy Pants happy Holidays snowfall 12x12 patterned paper
Fancy Pants All fall printed ribbon
Ranger Distress Ink Worn Lipstick
Small piece of sponge
Basic Grey Undressed chipboard Monograms
Ranger Glossy accents
Fine iridescent glitter
Fancy Pants flowers Claire de Lune
Rusty pickle button bottle turquoise
Manila tag
Heidi Swapp Swirl clear stamp

Paint your wooden crate white and set aside to dry.
Cut 4 3x12 inch strips of the Candy Cane paper and crumple up. Attach one to each side of the crate.
Cut 4 2x12 inch strips of the Snowfall patterned paper, crumple and attach centrally to the paper strips that are already in place on the crate.
Tie a length of ribbon around the centre of the strips.
Ink the edges of a tag and stamp with the swirl clear stamp. Decorate with flowers and buttons and threat beneath the ribbon tied around the crate.
Use the sponge piece to colour the chipboard letters red and once dry cover with glossy accents. Sprinkle with the glitter whilst still wet and set aside to dry.
Once dry attach the letters to the crate and fill with treats!
