Handmade Cake Boxes – “Be Lazy” Challenge

These cake shaped gift boxes are easy to make and actually you need a template or a craft die to make the shape. Crew Member Irit Shalom used the non branded craft die, but there are a lot of free templates on the web to use for the same shape. This box is a perfect gift box for a jewelry piece, a watch or something small to put inside as the size is exactly like a cake piece. All cardstocks and the lace pieces are from Canvas Corp Brands and all mediums are from Tattered angels. The dies are from different companies, some are non branded or gifts, but these are general craft dies such as leaves or lace dies.

Follow the steps below to create a similar type of project.
