Cupcake Holder Box Tutorial using Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Cupcake Holder Box Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Cupcake Holder Box Tutorial

How cute is this?

It was the last birthday of the year in our house yesterday, our son Jacob turned 7.  We didn’t have a party with his friends here, that’s in a few weeks time as they aren’t yet back to school until tomorrow, but we did have a mini family thing!

While I was making plans of what to do for him, this sprang to mind when I remembered the candle cupcakes my friend Angie makes. I ordered half a dozen in and got making and creating!

It’s easy to make this box and I’ve done other versions of it in different sizes before including a tiny one here!

So I do hope you enjoy creating and making boxes for candles and perhaps other rounded gifts.

    where did you say to get the cupcake candles from please. Sorry I know I am a pain but ever since I had a couple of small strokes I get very confussed. Hope you understand and thanks for your patience x

  5. How do I purchase the cupcake candle and the cost.

    My comment is not about this project, although it IS adorable. Mine is about box’s I have made from 12×12 paper using your idea. Being a thrifty crafter I hate throwing scraps away. The box I am talking about is cut at the top down to the first score line and is cut off. The top of it is already scored for the flap. These are PERFECT for treat bags ( clear plastic) measuring US size 3×4! The one side is a bit longer but you could trim it down, or leave it alone. either way, great use of what might be tossed away.
