Stamp Set Showcase Weel 7 (3)

I was planning for a class and wanted to give my attendees something nice but was running really short on time, and so sent my hubby out for some of those  some nibbles from the man who makes exceedingly good cakes and that got me to thinking.
Since I was using the Tag Topper Punch in class, that perhaps i could make a sweet little box for their cake

So here is my take on this cake presentation box (for individual cakes)
It uses very little product but is a really sweet little way of saying 'Thanks' or 'For You' etc, but since this is Chalk Talk week, it had to be the 'I Can't Thank You Enough' stamp

So here we go with the tutorial



Begin with a piece of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP)

I have used the PEar Pizzaz chevron paper from the Subtles Paper Stack

Trim the DSP to 15cms x 30cms

Now get out your Scoring Tool with the Metric Plate in place

Before scoring, just one quick note - be very gentle with the scoring tool otherwise  the DSP will tear. So use the larger end with gentle pressure)

With the long side at the top, score at 5, 10, 20, & 25, cms
(2", 4", 8" & 10")

Fold and burnish all score lines


The shaded areas above show where you need to remove sections
 (i.e. the 4 2" squares at the four corners)

The only cutting, is  to the second score line either side of the middle section where i have drawn the tag topper on the above diagram.

Below is what you should be left with 

(yes this is the same piece of DSP, it is just the reverse side of the Chevron paper earlier).

One at a time, insert each of the longest tabs into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, and punch

You will now be able to construct the box by folding up the 3 longer pieces, and bring round the short pieces at each end, overlap them and glue them with Tombow MP Glue so you have a rectangular box.

Cut a Tea Lace Doily in half and make a small fold along each straight edge so you can fold it over 
the side of the box. Stick to the box with  Sticky Strip. Repeat on the opposite side of the box.

Insert your cake slice. 

Thread a piece of Pear Pizzaz Chevron Ribbon through the tag topper holes and tie a bow or a knot



To finish, Stamp the 'I Can't Thank You Enough' stamp from Chalk Talk stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock in Chocolate Chip ink. Cut out with your paper snips. 
Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse side
Die cut the smaller label in the Chalk Talk Framelits Die Set in Wild Wasabi cardstock

Pierce a hole in the top of the tag, thread with Linen Thread and tie a big bow around the Chevron Ribbon.

How pretty would these look on a vintage Cake Stand???

See you tomorrow & enjoy your slice of cake .... well you have to fill the box now, don't you?

Happy Stamping
