Tuesday & time for a 3-D challenge from Paper Craft Planet. The 3D6 challenge is to make a Cup Cake box. Susanna provided the very easy to follow instructions. (* I did add the extra 1/2 inch to make the lid 5″x5″square, as per the addendum instructions & that worked much better than just the 5″x5″ for me).
For colours, I decided to dig into my big stash of unloved Purple Hues. I’m not a big purple fan, but why not.
I looked at the size of it & thought it might be a bit short for a cupcake … I like my Icing BIG so I thought I’d just fill it with chocolates & give it to my friend who seems to be having a really challenging week.
I didn’t have acetate for the see-thru cover, so I just used the packaging from my cover-stock paper. It’s really thick, but it did have a funny purple pattern on it. Ah well.
Used: textured Yellow CS, Almost Amethyst CS, Sticky Tape, Circle Punch, EK Success Slim line Edge Punch, So Saffron Gross Grain Ribbon, Purple ‘Craft’ Chipboard from $ Store, Cover Stock Plastic Packaging
