Celebration Time Mug Cake Gift Box

Mug Cakes are very popular now. I mean, what’s not to love? You pour the mix in a mug, stir in water or milk, and microwave it. Let it cool a couple minutes and you’ve got cake! Today I’m sharing packaging I made to hold one of these yummy pre-made cake mix pouches. I used the Celebration Time Bundle (Celebration Time stamp set and Celebration Thinlits Dies) to make this Powder Pink gift box and tags.

Here’s a Bonus Project:

This little coordinating box of jelly beans:

It’s very simple. Cut a piece of Powder Pink CS to 2″ x 8″. Score it at 2″, 4″, and 6″. Stamp candles on each 2″ x 2″ section. Put it in the Clear Tiny Treat box so it lines the front, bottom, back and top. Add your goodies (I used pomegranate jelly bellies) and close the lid. Apply a tiny Whisper White Bow to the top. Done!
