Wow, I wish I could award a ton of "Best Bakers" awards. The entries for the Catered Crop Follow-the-Recipe #7 were full of sweet Spring goodness. It was so much fun to host such fabulous eye candy.
Congratulations to Dorcas Perkins of Dorcas Designs. Her tissue box has us looking forward to thinking outside the box about making a box.
Playing with us at the Catered Crop "Follow-the-Recipe" linking party is easy-peasy! Use any of the ingredients (themes, colors, techniques, shapes, etc.) in Dorcas 's recipe to make your project. You don't have to use the same brand names, use all the ingredients or even make a tissue box. Just pick a few ingredients and then add your own spices to cook up something uniquely yours. Then, just add your project using the InLinz (froggy) button below and join the party. Keep the party going by clicking on some of the other entries and leaving a comment or two.
Here's your FTR8 recipe.

Notice all the hyperlinks in the recipe? Yes, we have the tools! Dorcas provided links to all these techniques to help make following her recipe easier. I'll be back, too, with some ideas for other paper boxes.
Be sure to list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe. Don't forget to link back to this post or include the "I Followed the Recipe" button on your blog (see the side bar to the right).
Paper Garden Projects is absolutely one of my favorite on-line go-to for paper craft supplies. Catherine's goal for the store is to provide high quality, unique papercrafting supplies and kits along with plenty of samples and inspiration. She stocks it with the things she loves and just added her own digital stamps. She's got Copics, stamps (Penny Black, Impression Obsession, Kraftin' Kimmie . . .), paper (Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon . . .) and way too much more to list here. Her customer service is the best in the industry – no pre-ordering, back-ordering and no waiting. The first item I ever bought from her was a Copic Spica pen. It came within just a few days with a handwritten note on the receipt telling me how to store the pen for long use. Wow! Be sure to check out her blog for her Fourth Friday challenge, and, if you look real close, you might see some of my creations on there from my days on her design team.
While you're checking out all the yummy goodies at Paper Garden Projects, be thinking about what you might do with a $20 gift certificate from Paper Garden Projects. Yep, one randomly picked winner will get to go shopping!
