Birthday Cake Gift Box and Blog Candy!

It's time for me to share my project for the July edition of Craft Project Central! I really wanted to make an extra special birthday gift box for someone special so I came up with this gift box that looks like a real cake!

Birthday Cake Gift Box: 
Here is an extra special gift box that is sure to please a girl on her birthday! This birthday cake shaped gift box, complete with icing around the edges, is big enough to fit a pretty large gift. The inside of the box is 5-1/2” wide x 8-1/2” long x 2-3/4” tall. The sparkling frosting swirls and beautiful flowers finish off this cake and make it look good enough to eat!

  4. I love this! I have a co-worker that is having a b-day this next week, but we have a no food in-no food out policy at our work (I teach at a low income preschool)! This is perfect, as I can give her a cake with a surprise inside all at the same time! Thanks so much for the fabulous treat!

  7. oh my word this is so beautiful! I have seen and made several cake boxes and slices of cake, throughout the years, but NONE came out looking so elegant.
    What a perfect box to make for bridal party gifts, shower favors, or to give to someone really special. Keep up the good work!
