Cupcake Box

This fortnight's challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is to create anything but a card.

I've used a tutorial I found last week on Stempeleinmaleins for a cupcake / muffin box.  I used it to contain a huge Bathsoap in the shape of a cupcake, which is decorated with frosting and topping etc just like a real cupcake.

I used citrus colours to match the cupcake wrapper too.


The tutorial was really easy, and it creates a gorgeous sturdy box shape.  
I guess you could also easily resize it if you wanted too.





The only thing I would change if I was to make it again is that I think it looks much better in coloured base card, whereas I used white, which I was not so happy with.  

Oh well, I'll know for next time!




Box Recipe:
  • Papers - First Edition Hideaway Embossed Glittered papers
  • Nesties - Fleur de Lis Squares
  • From my stash -  Ribbon, Embroidery thread, Acetate, Chalk ink
Please pop on over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
