Sara showed this first one on Create and Craft - and I have to say that it is one of my favourites. It's a single cupcake presentation box, and I decided to try something a little different with this one and put it through my Grand Calibur to cut the aperture with an Essentials Scalloped Rectangle. It did work - but is not without its problems. You have to fold the edges in to get it through - and you end up with the imprints of those folded over edges. But you can disguise them - it just depends whether you think it's worth the downside.
I just love the colours of this card - the pale gold tones with the white. Just beautiful! I decided to add a little bucket filled with florist's oasis and paper flowers - and sit it in a wrapper cut with the Daisy die. The bow and sentiment are from the CD, and I used the Essentials dies to cut the hearts.
The second box is made with the same card - this time it's a favour box. The rosette and heart motif are from the CD. I decide to use it for the topper as well. This time I used some soft gold pearl card from my stash to cut the wrapper - again with the Daisy die.
So, that's all my Birthday week makes. Am busy with a lot of other stuff at the moment - lots of great things coming up. But in the meantime, thanks for popping by. And if you do not already follow my blog - then please feel free to do so either directly on Blogger, through Bloglovin', via my Papercraft by Carole Facebook page, by email, or on Pinterest.
