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.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
