Cupcake Gift Box

Here is a simple cupcake takeout box I created.  The take out box is see through, it's sort of a frosty color though, not completely clear.  I purchased it from The Container Store.  I used leftover Cricut Cuts from the Sweet Treats cartridge that were part of my daughter's birthday party decorations.  Just my luck the cupcakes happened to fit the sides of the box perfectly.  I embellished them with a bit of Diamond Stickles.

For the top of the box I took 2 different flowers and layered them with pop dots, then I added bling in the center.  To attach them to the top of the box I also used pop dots, but I had to make sure and only put the on one side of the box flap so that it can still be opened.  I finished off with some of Stampin' Up's satin ribbon in bows on the sides. 

Since I used pre done cuts this was super quick and easy.  I have a box of random cuts that I haven't used yet, I think maybe it's time to have some fun with them.  Thanks so much for stopping by today :)  I am excited to get back in touch with everyone.  I don't have appropriate lighting for videos yet, but very soon I will.  Stay crafty everyone!
