Birthday Cake Easel Card Tutorial

Hi everyone! In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating a birthday cake easel card! If you are unfamiliar with easel cards, they are cards that fold up into a upright position (like an easel) and can fold flat and go into an envelope. This diy birthday card folds to have a birthday cake standing up, and then easily folds down to go into an envelope!

This is an easy and simple card to make, great for when you may be short on time or in a pinch to find someone a gift!

Materials:

  • Card stock (you’ll need at least 4 colors)
  • Score tool (or a pen that no longer writes)
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue (you’ll need something strong, I used this Tombow MONO glue which worked well – hot glue also works well!)

Paper Birthday Cake Slice Gift Box

In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating this birthday cake slice box out of paper!

 

This box is so cute and is the perfect size to fill with treats, such as candy, or other small gifts.

 

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~30 minutes

Materials:

  • Card stock paper (this project works best with paper that has a little thickness) in multiple colors (I used cream colored paper for the cake part of the box, pink for the frosting, and pink sprinkle paper for the top and back)
  • crepe paper for the frosting on the edge, I use this kind in white
  • paper straws (for the candles)
  • glue (I prefer hot glue for this because it holds fast and strong)
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • a tool to score with, I use this one
