Alas, there’s no actual cake involved in this project, unless of course some fabulous blog reader decides to send me cake… just saying… But the Designer Series Paper here is the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper (see it online) from the Holiday Mini Catalog (browse online).
The stamped leaf at the top of the box is from the 2-step Gently Falling stamp set (see it online), stamped in More Mustard and Soft Suede to match the Spice Cake Designer Fabric (see it online) and the giant Spice Cake Designer Button (see it online).
The box pleat folds around the edges of the box are easy to accomplish with the help of the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool (see it online). Each ‘box’ of the pleat is 1/4″ deep, so set up your Simply Scored and score at 1/4″, 1-1/4″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 2-3/4″, 3-3/4″, 4″, 5″, etc. for the length of the paper. Another tip — be sure to attach your Designer Series Paper to the card stock strip before you begin scoring. That way both pieces will be scored exactly the same and folding will be easier.
Fold to create the box pleats, then adhere to your Kraft Gift Box with Sticky Strip. Looking for more Gift Box ideas? Be sure to check them out on my blog! (click here for ideas)
