Day Two with Julie Buhler

It's day two with Julie Buhler and today's project comes with a little inspiration from Julie's kitchen. Julie used an image from our Baking Stamp Ensemble.

Which is one of 6 items that you can buy from the JustRite Website in our Buy One Get One Free Sale. Sale ends November 30th. So tell Santa, tell your friends about our terrific sale.

At this time of year, a lot baking is being done, and whatever comes out of the oven often ends up as a gift. I like to give my baking away in something that will be enjoyed, as much as the food. Last year, I etched glass plates for them to use after. This year, I was inspired by Lauren, and created a box to give away my goodies.

Everyone buys two bite brownies, but did you know it is so easy to make your own? Just by a brownine mix, and instead of putting it in a pan. use a mini muffin tin!! Then, bag them up and put them in a box as delectable as the treats inside. This box holds 10 or so of this sized treat - it is pretty big.

Since I needed a box, I designed my own template. On the top, I used the 2 5/16 circle Harmony block and the baking stamp ensemble. I made a scallop circle and then stamped the border on the vanilla. I stamped the Fudge center with chocolate ink, and added stickles to the chocolate chips (or hearts ?), and paper pierced between each one. I used my cutter kit on the vanilla and put it all together on my lid.

This is a front view, but you have so many options with this set!! Fill it with a hot chocolate mix, christmas cookies, chocolates, etc. and then pick the stamp to match. I covered the box with some baking patterned paper I found. My lid is held on by some Basic Grey magnets again, since I didn't want a ribbon over the top to hide my lid topper. The packaging turn the gift into a gourmet treat!

I was looking for a project for a couple of family members that we will not be exchanging gifts with this year and Viola! Julie comes up with this. I just happen to have an awesome homemade brownie recipe and two mini tart pans from PC. Thanks JR and Julie Buhler!!!
