DIY: KitchenCraft: United States of America Cheese Board

November 6, 2012

Curiosity Shoppe Cutting Board Cheese Platter

If you saw my post on Sunday, you know that I love combing kitchen with craft. So it only makes sense that Damask Love should have a feature called “KitchenCraft” right? To kick of the KitchenCraft series, I thought I’d share this projecct that was inspired by a cutting board I purchased from Target a few weeks ago. Those people at Target are geniuses. Without fail, I leave that place with a cartload of stuff that I do not need, which more often than not includes some random piece of junk from the Dollar Spot – because everything looks good when it costs a buck.

Luckily, this United States of America cutting board was an awesome purchase from the good ol’ Tar-jay! In the spirit of the election, I thought today would be a great time to post this patriotic project!

When I bought the cheese board, I immediately thought – how cool would it be to create a USA themed cheese platter, with domestic cheeses from around the country! Turns out, you get really weird looks when you go to the cheese shop and insist that you need a cheese from Oregon… and nothing else will do.  Good thing I have no shame.

To cover the “craft” portion of this KitchenCraft project, I used the State-to -State die collection from Clear and Simple Stamps along with the Simply Stated 1 stamp set. Of course I had to arrange the cheeses according to the location of their origin – because geographic accuracy is of utmost importance here, folks.
