cake box party favors


via the Paper Source blog
Make this zero calorie dessert as a delicious party favor for your next dinner party, ladies lunch or tea. With scallop icing trim and chocolate curls, they are lovely to decorate a place setting or stack them on a cake platter for a centerpiece. Also wonderful as bridal shower favors or decorations.

Use the PDF template to cut out each cake shape for easy assembly, and choose any colored paper to create your own combination of “flavors”…red velvet…strawberry…dark chocolate! Sweet!

Materials Needed:
How to PDF
8 1/2 x 11 Cover Paper (Superfine Soft White)
8 1/2 x 11 Text Paper (Shimmer Chocolate and Stardream Opal)
Xacto Knife or Scissors
Ruler
Cutting Mat (optional)
Bone Folder (optional)
Glue Stick
Scallop Scissors
Pencil

Getting Started:
Begin by printing the How to PDF and cutting out each cake part template. Cut along the solid lines only. Once finished, you should have 7 cake part templates (you will use the Step 2a template twice to create a total of 8 cake pieces). Next follow the instructions below along with the How to PDF for using each template with the paper listed or other paper you have selected.

Instructions:
1. Use each cake part template to cut out shapes from the colored papers creating all 8 cake parts.
2. With a bone folder, score and fold along the dotted lines as shown in each template.
3. Assemble the parts in numbered order – the templates will show you where to apply adhesive. Use the finished sample image as reference.
