The Farmer's Market
DIY Paper Crate Boxes | Making Miniature Crate boxes with Silhouette Cameo | by Maritzagarcia.website
Hello Friend. Welcome to my handmade Farmers Market today.
I hope you enjoy this fun little project I dreamt up a few weeks ago. This idea came to me for two reasons. Number one. As a frequent Farmers Market visitor. I often fixate on all the old wooden crates and how items are displayed inside them. My thoughts wander and then this idea pops into my head. Pretty much that's how inspiration strikes me. It happens anytime and any where. I get my inspiration from everyone and everything. Really? REALLY!
My number two reason. I had also bought this adorable carrot shaped garden post that I was suppose to use for Easter this year. But that didn't happen. No worries. Already I had other ideas of how I would use it and believe me. This isn't going to be it's last appearance on this here blog.
Now that you read this far. Let me give you the details. These little wooden crate boxes are actually made out of cardstock paper! Yes. 100% cardstock paper that I stained with stamping ink to create a old weathered wood look. As for the jute twine veggies. I found those at the World Market during Spring/Easter season and was sad to find out that once they sell-out. They don't reorder the items again. Each set of veggies came in bunches of three (peas, carrots, pearl onions and radishes).
Now. To recreate your very own miniature wooden crates you will need to a Silhouette Cameo to download this adorable design by Lori Whitlock simply click on this direct link 3d wooden crate box to start creating a few of your very own.
*Please note. I tweaked my crate boxes a little by Elongating them to fit my veggie items inside. also. i stained my cardstock paper for a weathered look to resemble real wood. wood sign labels were created by using the rectangle and ellipse shapes on my Personal silhouette studio.
Hope you get a little inspiration to create a little Farmers Market of your own this summer. I could totally see these being used as place settings or put out on display at a picnic theme birthday party or baby shower. How would you use these little crates? Let me know. Until next time friend. Happy crafting!
