Happy Birthday Cake Slice Box

Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday and I made him a cake slice box.  I put photos of  me and our fur babies inside the box wishing him a happy birthday.  The challenge was in trying to decorate the box in a masculine way.  I was inspired by The Paper Players Color Challenge – Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Early Espresso.  These colors are so rich together and masculine.  I am also submitting my cake slice to Piece ‘O Cake Paper Craft Planet 3D challenge.

I made my cake box from Early Espresso  card stock then covered with DSP printed from My Digital Studio – Cherry Cobbler polka dot and Not Quite Navy Villa DSP.   I trimmed a 1-1/4″ strip of Early Espresso with the Eyelet Border punch and adhered to the lid.  I also used the retired Take a Spin stamp set , Striped Early Espresso ribbon and Birthday Banner to decorate the top.  I couldn’t resist and added clear rhinestones to the banner and the sides of the box.  I also used an Antique brad for the back.

I also used My Digital Studio to print the photos and then used the 2-3/8 inch circle punch.  I attached the photos with mini glue dots to 1/4″ Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.  I adhered each end with mini glue dots.
