Creative Cuts and More~Cupcake Box


Honestly, I think I love Creative Cuts and More as much for the beautiful papers they offer as for all the cool dies! This Cupcake Box is cut out of Caramel Curious Metallic paper. If I was going to do a wedding or a bridal shower, these would be the colors! I started the box by stamping A Chemistry With Paper's branch stamp from Stylized Flowers in Brilliance Chocolate. I embossed it in Ranger's Hologram. I worked one side at a time, before I put the box together. Next, I glued on the Primas with SU!'s Crystal Effects-my favorite all-purpose glue. Then I put a dab of Crystal Stickles in the center of each flower and left it to dry for a few hours. I have learned to be very patient with Stickles, sometimes I think loose glitter is actually easier when you consider how long Stickles takes to dry! When I came back, I folded the box and fixed with CC&M's Killer Red Tape, and made the lid. Then I spent an embarrassing amount of time fiddling with the ribbon and making the bow out of Flourishes' fabulous brown satin ribbon, which I also attached with the redline tape.

I am speechless - as so often happens when I visit your blog. You probably hear "gorgeous" all the time, so I wish I could find a word that was more original. But the bottom line is this: You ROCK!

Carla,

This is beautiful! I love it. But I was wondering if you could post the top of the box? I can't really get the effect of what makes this box so special, i.e. a cupcake box. Do share. Please, please, please.....:)
