When I think of birthdays I think of cake, so I created a stack of gift boxes that resembles a birthday cake. Yum!
I resized THIS file to create each of the boxes. I added die cut border strips to each box and a fun cake topper. The boxes measure 5.5", 4.25", and 3" across and are about 2" high. And how about those gorgeous papers and trims? They are from Heidi Sonboul's Sunkissed collection from GCD Studios.
The boxes separate so you can fill each one with a special gift. Give each box separately or as a set. Now I know what you're thinking--making a 3D circle box must be so hard! Let me tell you, it is so easy, even for a beginner. All I did was add some adhesive to the circles and adhere the box sides. Don't be afraid to give it a try!
I mixed and matched the papers and trims to make the inside of each box equally fun and festive.
I added a straw flag topper along with a whimsical spiral to the top of my "cake". Wanna know how to make those cute little flags? Keep reading!
1. Trim 1.5" wide strips of paper and fold in half.
2. Insert a piece of paper into the folded strip and stitch near the edge of the strip.
3-4. Trim your stitched paper into flags of various shapes and sizes.
Now off you go to the super talented and inspirational Kelly Griglione. This girl really knows her way around paper!
