VC Rocks July Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Blog Hop for VCROCKS!!!

If you did not stop there you can always go back there to start over or to find a blog you may have missed.
I hope you arrived at my blog by the blog of: Debbie Martin  http://cleverandcute.blogspot.com
If not you can click on her link and go back to see what she has to share with you today.


What I have to share with you today is a slice of cake.

 I love making these as wedding gifts. I insert a gift card in the back where there is an opening. 

I downloaded this pattern from the SU web site. They have three different sizes you can make. I chose the largest of the three. I printed the template directly onto my white cardstock. Cut it out and folded on the printed lines.
Used a wheel and Versamark ink to make the pattern on the cakebox. Used black embossing powder and heated with the heat gun.
I used sticky strip tape to hold it together. It just fits on the fold lines. I then made my bows and wrapped the box in ribbon. I added a few pearls to the ribbon. I now have a great gift box.

Hope you enjoyed my share for today and come back often to see what else I have to share with you.
