FREE Mini Tutorial: Die cut the Bakers Box by Stampin' Up! from 6" x 6" DSP!

So, it's been a bit quiet on the ole blog this week but that doesn't mean I'm not making pretty things to share with you. I have been furiously creating and trying to get ahead for ( a very busy) February and I have been sharing a few sneak peeks on  Instagram/Facebook/Twitter. So if you want to keep up with what's going on at Chez Rae then please feel free to follow me on your favourite social media :-)
OK, so I have a cute Bakers Box to share with you today using the Birthday Bouquet DSP and I've made a little photo tutorial sharing my tips, for those of you who haven't yet used their box (like me!).
Lets take a look at the box I made first...
 I used one of these adorable mini bow paper clips to seal this box. To do this simply use your 1/16" circle punch to make a few holes slightly to the right of the center of the top tab and thread the paperclip through to seal.
 I used the flowers along the straight edges on the DSP sheet to their full advantage by adding them along the bottom of the box

 OK, so what I discovered - possibly a little late and you may already know this, if so please feel free to skip to the end of this section! - but, when I was making this box I realised that you could get two whole boxes per sheet of 12"x12" DSP or indeed one box from just two sheets of 6" x 6" paper from a stack of your choice, so I took a few photos to share this with you today :-)

So, I originally laid the die, cutting side down, on my DSP and thought it was marginally larger than 6" square, so I flipped it over to double check and found I could get more bang for my buck! 

I cut my 12" x 12" Birthday Bouquet DSP into two 6" x 6" pieces (shown here). 
You can now also take two sheets of 6" x 6" sheets of any SU! paper stack too! 
I love that our paper stacks are 6" x 6" now :-)

Now, to cut this box I used this sandwich:
*Magnetic platform,
*a bottom plate
*then place your die down with the cutting side facing up.
 1. Place your paper with the pattern you want showing face down on the die,
2. *Note and if it has a "direction" ensure the bottom of the design aligns with the bottom section of the die (shown to the left here)
3. Ensure the DSP covers the cutting blades, it's going to be close!
4. Pop a top plate on and roll through your big shot to cut. Repeat for the second half.
And one more photo of this cute box to finish today!
OK, that's all from me for today, I really hope you enjoyed todays post and my little tutorial was helpful? Do let me know :-)
