Having a love of cupcakes and a love of papers has to work together – dont you agree?? I can have the best of both worlds and make cupcakes as presents and also the box to give them in!! I managed to work out this one so that it fits onto a 12×12 sheet of cardstock and could even be adapted for an A4 sheet of card.
Instructions are as follows, please excuse if the pics arent all really clear as i was taking the pics as i was working it all out! lol
Cut out and around template, score the pieces to be folded and all of the edges. Score and cut out a 2 1/4in by 2 1/2in window half in the lid, half down the side. Cut a piece of acetate slightly larger, score the middle horizontally and stick onto the underside of the window you just cut. Stick double sided tape along all of the cut flaps, fold them in and stick them down. You need a little stand inside for the cupcake to fit securely. Cut a piece of sturdy card half an inch larger than the base of the box. Score 1/4 of an inch all the way round and snip the corners. I used a nestability die to cut the scallop circle from the middle – you can use a punch, die, even plain old scissors, whatever. Score and fold the 1/4in strips around the outside and you should have a little seated tray – this can be popped straight into the box. Decorate the box as you wish 🙂
Hope that was ok to follow and if anyone has any questions just give me a yell 🙂
I would love to see a picture if anyone does make some of these as im quite proud of my little box! 🙂
