I decided to make a CUPCAKE BOX for our Birthday person.
Let me share a few steps to make one of these.
 I started with The Popcorn Bear Birthday CD and printed out a layered sheet for a couple tags.I pulled out my Ultimate tool so I could make a box much easier. I did a search on-line to find my dimensions.


I love having the crease straight and crisp. even when layering paper to decorate I love the tool  for measuring.
 To make the inside insert I measured to fit in snugly.I then used my Spectrum Noir markers and a ruler to outline the edges. I used a hand punch to cut out the shape in the middle.

 When designing I used the smaller layered tag layered on the shape I cut out of the cupcake holder.
The larger layered Bear was perfect for the top.
 I used some fun papers called songbird and a great ribbon from my stash to attach the tag to the box.
This box could be used for other ideas besides a cupcake, but I think we needed one for our birthday celebration.


Here is a list of the DT you will need to visit on this hop:
