3D Paper Box

22 Sep

Do you know the problem with surprises? Sometimes the person you are trying to surprise finds a solution before you can bring over the surprise. This story has very little to do with the topic of this post except for what I used it for. My mom was in charge of a bridal shower this weekend, and when her cinnamon rolls failed to rise I tried to surprise her by making her some mini cheesecakes to put on display. The problem was, she already raced to the store and bought some goodies… a lot of goodies… too many goodies… to replace the cinnamon rolls with. So I had 50+ mini cheesecakes to get rid of. SO! I jumped onto the Silhouette Online store and found a cutsie box I had purchased a while back, and used it to deliver some treats to some friends. The 3D paper box design I used is by Samantha Walker (love her!), Silhouette design ID 42311. It actually is a 3D paper box CARD (you’ll have to click that link to see what I mean) but I used it just as a box.

I cut one sheet of one pattern, and then a second sheet of paper using a matching color or pattern then swapped the band for each box so that it was contrasting.

I spread the design to fit the width of the paper as best I could. I did have scraps, but that is ok. I use scraps for other things.

I laid a square of wax paper at the bottom of the box, and placed my mini cheesecakes in them (I made the mini cheesecakes with a mini muffin tin, if that helps you get an idea of the size here).

I’m super excited to go pass out these cute little boxes. Way more fun than a tubberware or bagged plate of treats!!!
