My Pink Stamper Design Team Post - April

 Wedding Themed: Cake Box
Put candy or other yummy goodies inside the box to thank your guests for attending. Make a large cake by putting many cake boxes together. These could even be the center piece on the table.

The ribbon is for looks but also to hold the box closed. This picture shows how the cake box is put together.

How To Make:
Cake Box (button #45) -  Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge - 8"
Hearts (button #27-blackout) - Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge - 1.25" (cut 2x)

First cut out the cake box.  Then score the lines and test fold it to make sure the point will fold right. If you want to stamp the sentiment directly on the box then do it before it is glued together. I tried to stamp it on the box and that was to late so I had to stamp on another paper and then glue that down. Cut 2 hearts, pop up, and adhere. Glue the box togeher except for the square end. Use adhesive (tape runner) on the ribbon that will go on the 2 sides on the box. But don't let any tape go on the end or your guests won't get the box open. I found it helped to adhere the ribbon to the box because it would stay in place and not slide around. Insert your candy or yummy goodies into the box. Tie a beautiful bow to keep the box closed. And you have a simple but beautiful cake box. Change the stamp and decorations to make it work for any type of party favor. This project was alot of fun to make and I love how it turned out.
Well...this was not the original project I made for this post. We were suppose to make a party favor using any theme. I found a beautiful box with a cake on it and I loved the colors, but I just didn't love the finished project. Some projects you will fall in love with and other's just aren't your favorite. I still want to share it with you.

These are front and back views.
