SASI Cupcake Box

You all know how much I love Dots Cupcakes, right? Lately it seems like I make a trip there at least once a week to get my "fix" (gosh... I totally sound like an addict)! lol. Every time I go there I think about making a cute little box to hold the yummy cupcake. I was there the other day so I bought an extra cupcake and started off on my quest to create a box. The box was super easy to make using my Scor Pal. I didn't have a chance to photograph step by step, but I can walk you though it. The bottom of the box was created using a full 12x12 sheet of patterned paper. I scored at 4" on each side. Then when you make one cut on each of the four corners, you can fold the box together and adhere it with sticky tape. The lid for the box uses an 8 1/4" square piece of patterned paper. I scored at 2" on each side. I used the Stampin' Up scalloped border punch all the way around the square. Once again, make a cut on each of the four corners and the lid will fold together easily. Before adhering the lid together, I centered a Spellbinders die on the lid and sent it through my Cuttlebug. I adhered transparency over the circle for a little peek-a-boo cupcake window. I also created an insert inside the box to better display the cupcake. The ribbon is May Arts and I used a cupcake from the Sweet Celebration set on the tag. That's it from me today! I'm off to eat this cupcake because it has now served its purpose for the photograph and needs to serve its other purpose of making me happy! :) Thanks for stopping by today!
