I love this time of year when fresh blueberries are available. I’ve been enjoying them from The Produce Box, a local company that delivers locally grown, farm-fresh produce to your door every week during our North Carolina growing season. So this morning, I tried out a new recipe for The Best Blueberry Muffins and the recipe didn’t lie ! They were fantastic! And although they disappeared quickly, I did manage to squirrel one away to brighten someone’s day! So here’s my recipe for this great muffin or cupcake holder:
Take a Stampin’ Up! Kraft Box (pg 161 item#124106) which measures 3.4″x3.5″x2.5″ and fold it flat so the top of the box is free and can be run through your big shot.
Cover with designer series paper. I used Floral District (pg 163 item#126919).
Cut out a window using your favorite framelit or punch. I used the labels collection framelits (pg 191 item#125598).
Cut a piece of window sheet 3.5″ x 3.5 ” and adhere on back to create your window top.
Decorate the sides. I used a 10.5″ x 1.5″ strip of Floral District DSP scored at 3.5″ from each end. I also decorated the edges with the adorning accents edgelit (pg 191 item#125595), but a punch like the Scallop Trim Border (pg 183 item#118402) would also work well.
Then embellish. I used the “For You” stamp from Layered labels (pg 103 #127070 wood, 127072 clear) stamped in Lucky Limeade (pg 152 #126984) and cut out with the matching framelit from Apothecary Accents (pg 191 item 127003) layered with the For You section stamped in Tangerine Tango (pg 152 #126946) and punched out with the Large Oval Punch (pg 184 item#119855) and adhered with Stamping Dimensionals.
And finally for the finishing touch, I added a butterfly created with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit (pg 188 item 118318) and a small scrap of Floral District DSP.
