My project for this challenge is a cupcake box.
To create this cupcake box, I used 2 different Cricut Cartridges -- George and Basic Shapes and Storybook and I also used the preloaded cartridge Gypsy Wanderings for the handle. This file was made completely from scratch.
I started with George and Basic Shapes. I used mostly squares and resized them to the size I wanted. This box is a 3" cube with a window cut out at about1.5" from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge. For the top, I used a rounded triangle and resized an oval to create a slit for the handles to be pulled through. The handles are a cut from Gypsy Wanderings.
For the little tag up on the corner, I used the scallop from Mini Monograms cut at 2". I cut out the cupcake image from the same sheet of cardstock that I used for the box itself. I used a pop dot to place the monogram on the outside of the cupcake box.
Paper - DCWV Sweet Stack
Cricut Cartridges - George and Basic Shapes, Storybook, Mini Monograms (for the tag), Gypsy Wanderings (for the handle)
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Other - Provocraft Gypsy, pop dots (for the tag), Pink ATG
In addition to the box, I also made the cupcake holder inside (so the cupcake stays in place and doesnt hit the sides of the box. Since my box is 3" x 3", using my gypsy, I layered two 4" rectangles over each other and welded them. This gave the holder a height of about 0.5" so that it did not come up over the window on the box. I inserted 3 circles in the middle; one that was 2.5" and two smaller ones that were about 0.75". Creating a circle that is 2.5" will fit a standard sized cupcake.
Making boxes and customizing them to the sizes I want is my new obsession these days... so you may be seeing more posts of my box creations. =)
Hope you enjoyed yourself. Thanks for stopping by.
Have a fabulous day!
