Spice Cake Covered Box

Isn't this the cutest box. These little Kraft boxes are in the SU Holiday Mini and are sized at 3-1/2 X 3-1/2 X 2 1/2 and you get 4 to the pack. They would be cute just to add a ribbon around it. But I decided to use the Spice Cake designer paper and cover it.  I also made a band using the lace ribbon border punch. The flower I made from using Sizzix Flower Layer # 3 die. I then attached it to a round circle after adding the leaves that I punched out using Blossom Petals Builder Punch and scored down the center.  The center of the flower is made using home made "flower soft". I just used a piece of More Mustard card stock and the small side of a food grater and then picked up the pieces and glued to the center. How neat is that?  So simple and you get quite a bit with just a few seconds of grating.  I actually saved what I did not use.

Here is the front side of the box!

And a close up shot!

I am planning on doing a few more of these for the craft show as I think it will be a great box to add cookies or candy too.

Oh, Jonia! I like this very much! What a wonderful combination of papers and punches and colors! It's a lovely gift all by itself! However, the title of "Spice Cake" has me craving coffee and a snack! lol :o)
