Cake Slice "Party Favor" Wheel

I made this using "left-overs" from the My Creative Scrapbook November Main Kit that featured the Teresa Collins Friendship Collection.

These card stock favor boxes held together with a ribbon, are the perfect addition for any get-together & can be made to suit any holiday or occasion. I saw this on BHG's online website & thought it looked fun! I have changed a couple things as I found the original instructions to be a little vague.

Supplies:
Patterned paper (scraps), adhesive or 2 sided tape, ribbon, straight or hat pin, bone folder or scorer, 13 sheets of 8.5 x 11 card stock in colors of your choice, topper decor.

The pattern can be found at:
Cake Wheel Pattern
*Open the pattern & save it to a word file. I enlarged it approx 200%

*Print pattern on 13 sheets of card stock ( 12 sheets for boxes & 1 as a template)

*Cut 12 boxes along SOLID lines. Also cut slit on end flap
*Score, using a bone folder or scoring tool all dotted lines of the pattern... scoring makes the folding a breeze!
*Fold box along the scored lines & secure with some adhesive on side & bottom. ( I used 2 sided tape).
*Fill with some yummies & tuck end flap into slit.


*Using remaining card stock pattern, cut out section that represents the cake top. This will be used as a template for the printed paper ( see below)
*Cut 12 of these from the printed paper. I cut mine approx 1/4 inch smaller on all sides so the card stock could be seen as a border. I also inked the edges of the cake wheel a bit.
*Adhere to top of cake wheel.

*Place ribbon around slices to hold boxes together. Then using a hat pin pull ribbon snug & pin together. This makes for a "quick" take apart!!

Top-off cake with topper decor to match your theme/or embellies! I just set mine on top!


There ya go!! I am looking forward to seeing how you decorate your cake slide party favor wheel! Have Fun & thanks for visiting!!
