Dressing up Plain White Cutlery for a Summer Picnic

I used a Sizzix cube die to make a fun outdoor party container!

It’s summer here and that means outdoor entertaining.  I tend to use cheap white plastic cutlery and it looks like cheap white plastic cutlery.  Once I put it in a red and denim blue box it suddenly looked a whole lot more festive and ready for summer fun.

How’d I make that box? It’s Eileen Hull’s ATB Sizzix die with some worn out denim jeans on watercolor paper.  Best of all, I can make as many of these that I need!  Spoons get one, forks get one, knives get one.  Check out the video where I show you the process from start to finish!

    Carolyn I love how you used the ATB! Your videos are always so much fun to watch and this is no exception. You work like I do, figuring it out as you go- that’s the fun of it, right? Love the box, butterfly and that you recycled the jeans to make it… beautiful!
