Crafter's Christmas Wishes Day #10 ~ Christmas Box Tutorial & A Giveaway!

It's Day #10 of the Crafter's Christmas Wishes & we are very excited to share Kendra's Christmas Cupcake Box today.  She used the new Cupcake Presentation Box Template. This cute little box could be used for any small holiday gift or yummy treat.

Step 1: Gather the desired template, cardstock, pencil and scissors.  For this project, she used the Single Cupcake Presentation Box Template and the 12”x16” Construction Cardstock.

Step 2: Line up the template on the cardstock and use EZ Release Tape to secure the template while tracing the outline.

Step 3: Once the template is traced, remove the template to make sure all of the lines were completed, including the score lines (inside broken lines).  If any were forgotten, replace the template and complete.

Step 4: Trim all solid lines with scissors.

Step 5: Using the scoring board on The Ultimate Crafter’s Companion Tool, score the broken lines on the box and fold all of the score marks.

Step 6: Add Distress Ink (Antique Linen) to the scored edges.

Step 7: Trim red, green and patterned paper pieces to decorate the box.  

Step 8: Use the Presentation Box template to trace a piece of pattern paper layer using the inside broken lines.

Step 9: Attach all of the cardstock and patterned pieces to the outside of the box.

Step 10: Attach the alternate pattern and cardstock to the inside of the box.

Step 11: Trace the Cupcake Insert from the template (this is included with the Presentation Box).

Step 12: Trim the spot for the cupcake using the Cupcake Insert Die.

Step 13: Using the Scallop Cupcake Wrapper, trim 2 wrappers ~ one from green cardstock and one from coordinating pattern paper.  Attach them and assemble the cupcake wrapper by inserting the tab into the slot.

The inside of the box with the assembled cupcake wrapper.

She decorated the outside with May Arts Ribbon and two Classique Christmas Dies - Filigree Bauble & Scenic Pines
