Wrapping 101: #12 ~ Merry Moments Bread Box


I think I've found the perfect Christmas gift to give those people I want to say "thank you" to in a simple but thoughtful way. This adorable bread box holds a small 6" x 3" loaf of bread. I'm thinking, bananna bread, pumpkin bread, cranberry-orange,...


Like any box there is a bit of scoring but it is a pretty basic box. I've seen a number of these over at splitcoast but I think Mary Jo Price at Techno Stamper is probably who the credit goes to. I apologize if I'm incorrect.

Add some beautiful paper, like StampinUp!s Merry Moments Designer Series paper and a tag from Stampin'UP!s Christmas Punch hostess set and you have a beautiful gift. I love it!

All project information including recipes and instructions will be made available at the end of the challenge. Yes, you will have to wait until the end :-) Also, if you have an idea you would like to share, check out this post for more information on participating.


See you tomorrow for Wrapping 101 and lucky #13!

God Bless,

Hi Martha! I'm new to your blog...just found it yesterday and loved it! I adore these boxes for loaves of bread and yours is totally gorgeous! I made a few of these last year for xmas gifts and the recipients oohed & ahhhed over them. Perfect xmas gifts for sure! :)

Just love this little "bread box" for wrapping up little loaves of quick breads! Can't wait to see what else you have for pretty packagings!

I am not a baker, but I love your idea of these little bread boxes.

A goal for this year is to bake mini breads for Christmas gifts.

Thanks for the great idea!

Yup, Love it. I love to give out bread. OK, I love to make the bread, eat the bread and occasionally share the bread. The box is great. Can't wait for the deets!

This is awesome! I'm the queen of bread baking around the holidays and this is an awesome way to gift it out as gifts instead of plain ol' colored saran wrap. What a great idea!
