It's Zucchini season!
This wonderful summer squash is rather prolific in our neck of the woods, though I can never have enough! We enjoy using it in many of our recipes, one of which is baking bread for our family & friends.
Here's a fun idea for a gift set.
I baked a few mini bread loaves, while they were cooling I cut out my kraft boxes using Carolyn's free template here (pdf). When the bread had cooled I gently wrapped them in wax paper to prevent sticking.
The bread boxes were a perfect fit. Next came the paper doily and baker's twine along with a faux-chalkboard tag for embellishing.

from the set TAG YOU'RE IT set one!
I cut a simple tag using black cardstock, stamped my Joy's Life sentiment with SU! white Craft ink then heat embossed it with Ranger's white embossing powder. To give it a chalkboard effect, I smudged SU! white Stampin' Pastels over the surface.
Hubby made me a mini-size cutting board which I decorated with vinyl using my Cricut- Going Places cartridge. Just a little something extra for fun!
I'll be sharing a few favorite zucchini recipes soon including my super easy bread!
Do you enjoy using zucchini in your recipes?
Do you grow it in your garden?
