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)
  • 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

Pop up Birthday Cake Card Tutorial

A new tutorial is up, showing how to create a pop-up birthday card!ย Hereย it is:

If you are here for the templates, here they are.
For most of these patterns you only need to trace and cut one. This excludes the candle pattern – you’ll need 4 of these – and the sign pattern – you’ll need 13 of those. I’ve written how many you’ll need of each on the pattern also.

 

Click on each file to view & print:

 

Materials:
  • The patterns above
  • Cardstock, Scrapbook paper, art paper, construction paper – any paper that is a little heavier than printer paper should work
  • Tape
  • Glue (A glue stick or glue gun is best)
  • Sharpie or other marker
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
The simplest way to make this card would be to trace the cake and candle patterns onto white paper, then color them in. I used multiple papers to create the cake, candles, flames, etc. This is quite a bit more work, and you’ll need to add little tabs to everything so you can attach it all together.

 

Also, if you want to make this card a little sturdier and more permanent, add tabs to cake pattern #2 and glue everything on, instead of using tape.

 

If you create this card, and you’d like to share – tag me on instagram: @essyjae ๐Ÿ™‚
