Bake Sale Blog Hop

Hello All, now that the Blogger issues have passed, I hope you've been able to hop through with ease today.  I'm your last stop, but if you've come here by chance, you may want to start at the beginning with Georgiana at Carson's Creations.  Thanks to all that visited last night and for all your comments!  They're much appreciated.

My project for today is a cake box.  Using My Cut Search, I learned that there are only 3 Cricut cartridges that have a cake box cut:  Tags, Bags, Boxes, and Mores; Tie the Knot; and Wedding Solutions.  I had recently purchased Tie the Knot for $18.99 at a Joann's sale, so I was happy to learn I could make a cake box, so fitting for this Bake Sale Blog Hop!  Here's what I did:

Using paper from DCWV Green Tea Stack (1/2 w/foil), I used "Fit to Page" to cut the base box.  I wanted to see how large a box it would make.  It cut at 9-3/4."
Then I scored it using the tick marks to make the folds.  They're tiny so you have to look closely for them.  Very quickly, your paper starts to take shape.
Next I cut the box lid at 9-3/4".  I love the scalloped edges.

Then I scored, folded, and taped the lid.  I added some green ribbon from my stash around the lid, made a flower using the color scheme of the box, and cut a label from Lacy Labels at 3-1/4".  This cartridge is great for labels like this.  And voila, a cake box!

Oh, and I added a little bling to the label and flower--couldn't forget that!!

I have some blog candy to give away, so leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.  Posting on yesterday's and tomorrow's posts will give you extra chances to win.  You don’t have to be a follower, but I’d appreciate it if you were.  Make sure you leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you are the winner.  I will draw a name using on Monday night, May 16.
My blog candy includes a set of “Party Invite” stamps by Stampendous, some “baking” stamps, Celebrate rub-ons, and of course, some bling!

If you think you missed anyone along the way, here’s the full line-up for the hop:

Georgiana, Carson's Creations -

Carri,  Double Click A Busy Bee -
Celeste, C.C.'s Cards and Crafts -
