It’s summer and it’s party time! For all summer-born babies planning for a birthday party, here is a project for you! I created this cupcake holder for birthday celebration (honestly, it can be used for any occasion!). What’s good about this is you can change the message and use it for different event.
See below for detailed instructions on making these yummy treat holders.
Step 1: Prepare a 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock, place on scoring board horizontally and score at 1/2″, 3 1/2″, 4″ and 7″. When done, rotate 90 degree to the right and score at 1/2″, 1″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 7 1/2″ and lastly at 8″.
Step 2: Trim the excess/unwanted area according to the picture shown above.
Step 3: Use a circle die (about 2 1/8″ in diameter) and place it in the middle of the square (as shown in picture above) then run through the die-cut machine.
Step 4: Assembling the box by folding all the scored lines to create a holder, apply glue to all the flaps to shut. Note: for the pull-out message piece, fold the flaps to the back and glue a piece of cardstock to form a pocket for holding the message/tag which is explained in Step 5.
Step 5: Die-cut the message/tag and embellishments. Stamp sentiment on the tag and punch a hole for the ribbon. Insert tag to the pocket located on top of the cupcake holder. Decorate holder with patterned cardstock and cutouts.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial, this project is not difficult to make at all and it’s perfect for any celebration in life (you don’t have to wait for a birthday party to eat a cupcake!). So make it today and celebrate YOU! 🙂 Thank you for checking out my post today, I hope you have a fabulous week! – Alexia
