Happy Wednesday

It's Royal Kat Wednesday at the castle again and we are making boxes this week! If you've come from Tina's blog you're on the right track. If you've come out of the blue, please sail back to the QKD blog for the beginning of the hop.

This is a "piece of cake" I used a cricut machine to cut the box out of aqua colored cardstock and used my scor-it to make the scores for the folds. Then I folded the box up and used tombow to secure the edges. I lined the outside with patterned paper from Fancy Pants. Adding a stamped and glittered cupcake and ribbon.

Next I added some Prima flowers and a brad to "ice" the edge of my cake.



That's it. It was a really simple box to make. I've seen people make entire cakes.. like 2-3 layer cakes with them!! It's a fun addition to a birthday party, wedding party, anniversary or even an open house. Fill them with candy, nuts or anything small and give them as favors at your next function!

Now, please visit Maria for the next stop on our box making blog hop. Thanks for stoping at my blog I hope you have a cool day.
