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.

No calorie birthday cake

The slice of cake I made for you today has no calories.  It’s a fun box you can decorate as a party favor or to fill with goodies or a gift card.  The box is made from a die I’ve had for a while and it was time to use it.  One of the great things about the Big Shot is you can use different kinds of dies from different manufacturers.  I die cut the cake slice then embossed with the Finial Press Folder.  I decorated the slice with doilies punched from the new Doily Triple Layer Punch, pearls and ribbon.  I served up my cake slice on a circle scallop plate I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  The candle is made with Very Vanilla card stock then decorated with a strip of Melon Mambo.  I freehand the flame using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight card stock.  Making this cake slice was a lot of fun.

If you’d like to make a cake slice box but don’t have a die click here for a template.
