Wedding cake box

Next on the list of inspiring things to do (on the CB blog) were weddingprojects. There was especially one that blew me away - a bride and groom box to have favours in. Go check them out!

I made my own version from a boxtemplate I had bought years ago. It's a piece of cake (excuse the pun ;) If you make 10-12 pieces you can put them together into one round cake. Great as little giftfavours for your guests to take home after the wedding. Or maybe for a fatfree weddingcake?

I actually have a couple of decorative boxes I have bought through the years, but instead of assembling them and using once I use them as a template. Good saving tip.

Anyhow, I traced the template on pink cardstock, then I cut out three pieces in white cardstock that would fit the top and sides of the cake. I ran them through an embossing plate and then I rubbed a light pink inkpad on the raised parts - great effect! I glued them on and finally stuck a glitterglued butterfly on the side. (The die is from cuttlebug - a set of four garden dies)

Well, I'm totally pooped now. I know it was supposed to be a SPA weekend (and it started like it) but now it's past 2am and I'm off to my lovely bed. Nighty night :)
