Cupcake Box


Isn't this the most adorable cupcake box ever? My friend Donna helped us make these at our last demonstrator meeting. They are sooo fun!

To make the box, start with a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock and score 4" from each side. Cut a 2-1/8" circle in one of the sides for the window and place a window sheet behind the circle.

To create the insert, use a 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" piece of cardstock scored at 1-1/4" from each side. Use the Circle Scissor to cut a 2-1/8" circle in the middle.

To make the lid, use a 6-5/8" x 6-5/8" piece of cardstock and score a 1-1/4" from each side. Scallop and stamp edges.

You could also use the box to hold a glass ornament!


We also made this beautiful flower on top with the ornament punch! We punched out 5 flower petals, scored them in half and use a marker to curl them. We punched 3 leaves and scored them in the middle and curled them as well. Then we attached the flowers to the top of a 1" circle and the leaves to the bottom. We placed some circles and boho flowers (from the punch) in the middle with dimensionals in between each layer.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Friendship 24-7
Paper: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Garden Green
Ink: Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Garden Green
Punches: Ornament, Boho Blossoms, Circle
Accessories: Circle Scissors, Window Sheets

I am loving that flower! I can't wait to make one! Thanks for sharing the details! I am glad that I got the punch and haven't traded it away! I knew that someone would come up with something beautiful!

Such a clever idea. Never thought to use the punch as a flower. Guess I need to start thinking "outside the box."
