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.
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)
*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!!
