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 what I made:
The box’s dimensions are 4-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ x 1/2″.
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Powder Pink card stock (CS) cut to 10-1/2″ x 6-3/4″
- scored along the 10-1/2″ side at 1/2″, 5″. 5-1/2″, and 10″
- scored along the 6-3/4″ side at 1/2″, 1″, and 6-1/4″
Stamped with the Celebration Time stamp set:
- WOOHOO in Powder Pink ink all over the outside of the box
- To: From: in Powder Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
- cake in Powder Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
Die cut using the Celebration Thinlits:
- To: From: tag
- cake stand from a scrap of Powder Pink CS
Cut using Paper Snips:
- see diagram
- cut away green areas
- cut solid lines
- You should end up with something like this.
Assembled the box:
- glued box together up the side and on the bottom
- put cake mix pouch inside box and closed the lid
- used Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon to tie around the box and tie on the two tags
