If there is one thing I love it is cake. I would even go as far as saying I love it more than chocolate! So I had to dedicate a Tuesday Trio to cake.
The fabulous Cutie Pie thinlits created the chocolate cake slice box. Isn’t it just perfect for party bags or for any other celebration where cake is involved?
It is so easy to make and you can use any colour card and stamp combo to re-create any cake. I used Soft Suede card stock, Chocolate Chip ink and the Sweet Stack stamp that co-ordinates with this die. I used Very Vanilla on the top and the edging is from a die included in the Cutie Pie Thinlits. They really are just brilliant.
The card was made with a Whisper White base layered with Wisteria Wonder. I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set on this, stamping the candles and sprinkles, on the layer, with Wisteria Wonder.
The sentiment was stamped with Soft Suede and I used four different subtle markers to colour individual sprinkles to stamp the background. This was then layered onto Sweet Sugarplum card stock.
The cupcake ‘cake case’ was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and I then used a blender pen to add a little more colour to it. The frosting was stamped in Pink Pirouette and the Sprinkles were stamped in Soft Suede. I used the Tree Builder Punch to punch it out then this was layered onto Wisteria Wonder (Subtles) DSP.
My final box is a cup cake box, and yes, I did make the cake too. (It has been eaten now though).
The base is made with Pink Pirouette card stock and stamped with the same ink using Flower Shop stamp set. I started off with the card measuring 5.5″ x 5.5″. I then scored at 1.5″ on all sides. Fold and burnish all sides then cut the flaps and adhere to make your box base.
The top was made with the Subtles DSP and is cut at the same size, 5.5″ x 5.5″. When scoring the sides, butt a piece of Pink Pirouette card along the side before you score. This allows the fraction of thickness required to make the lid fit over the base snuggly.
Before folding and burnishing I used a circle die cut to cut the circle in the top (I used one from the Bakers Box thinlits but you could use any shape) I then cut a square of Window Sheet and adhered that inside then folded, burnished and cut the tabs. Once the tabs were adhered I then looked at decorating it.
I again used the Flower Shop stamp and co-ordinating punch. The ‘eat me’ wording is from the Cutie Pie thinlits. I adhered the wording with the fine tip glue and the flower was adhered with some glue dots.
To finish off I added an insert to hold the cup cake in place. The strip is 4.5″ x 2.5″ and score 1″ in from each end. I used the 2″ circle punch to make the hole for the cake to sit in and then slipped it into the base.
I really enjoyed making all of these, especially eating the cake ?. I hope you have use for these too.
