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!

You are schmaat, Carolyn. Fun tute and great idea. Enjoy the outdoors.
Cute. I am always looking for ideas on how to put cutlery of any kind out for the summer cookout crowd. Nice. xox
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!
I’ve got my old jeans in hand…I’ll be right over for the picnic! FUN!!!!
A fantastic idea thank you for sharing your wonderful videos
Wow! Awesome tutorial! Such a cute little box! Thanks for sharing!
Love your video but I was wondering what kind of die cutting Machine did you use to cut out your box ?
I have a Sizzix Big Shot- a very old one but it does the job! Hope that helps!
