Birthday Cake Box

The creativity from talented crafters
always amazing me and here's a 
cake box by Sam Donald that is
a PERFECT example
of BRILLIANT creativity:

Stampin Up Cake Slice Box

Stampin Up Cake Slice Box 3

Here's my version:

Sam made a wonderful video tutorial (see end of post) and included the measurements but they were in centimeters, so I made a similar version in inches:

Take a 12" x 7.5" piece of DSP
and score along the 12" side score at
1", 3.5" and 7 3/4" then mark 
a pencil point at 4 1/4" and
the same point on the opposite side -
...and along the 7.5" side 
score at 2", 2.5", 5" and 5.5"

Here's what it looked like once
the cake box was scored
and completely cut out:

To create the scalloped pink frosting on top, I put the box together, turned it upside down, traced along the edges of the box, added a 1/2" border around the triangle, cut it out, scored on the traced lines and used a decorative punch on all edges. Adhesive pearls put the finishing touches on the frosted edges.
