It's BBQ time - Made Easy

Have you been loving this month's release with My Time Made Easy? I am always amazed that our very talented Lauren keeps coming up with new, fresh ideas month after month after month! WOWeee! SO - here's my BBQ gift set for today.... this will be just a little house warming goodie for a friend.

For this gift set I went back to the Fancy a Cuppa template (nice and roomy) and made a couple of minor modifications to make up this yummy set... When I cut the front piece I just cut straight across instead of cutting down the two cutouts. This is a photo of the unaltered template.

I used the delightful and versatile new Monograms Defined stamp set to create the front label for this set.  - How cute is that?

And I changed up the back piece by adding this reinforced triple circle topper to the front and the back. I didn't want anyone to try to pick this up by the "handle" at the top.  The same stamps again were perfect for creating a "medallion" for my gift box.

I constructed this from Gina K's base weight CS since I wanted it extra strong. I did add the inner divider since I was going to package up two bottles of BBQ sauce. I also added another layer of heavy duty CS to the inside BEFORE I put in the divider in to make this box stronger.

Then I tucked in some tissue paper

And some BBQ goodies - two bottles of BBQ sauce from Oklahoma (this is really yummy sauce!), a basting brush, a package of skewers and a package of Grill Mates seasoning to finish off the gift set.
I whipped up a quick coordinating card - used the same paper,  Fall Foilage and a simple layout.  I used sentiments from TWO sets to make my custom sentiment. "We wish you a" came from Secret Santa and "Home Sweet Home" came from Sugar and Spice!!!

I made a fun, fussy floral accent starting with a cork flower as my base then added some fun green fiber and topped it off with a crocheted flower (from my friend Hanne!!).

I hope this shows just how versatile Lauren's templates and stamps can be. I'm pretty sure this little set will be a winner!

This is awesome and just might be the perfect inspiration that I needed to create something unique for a masculine 40th birthday party gift I will be needing. Thanks
