Welcome to 3-D Thursday and this week it was my turn to create a little something and I came up with a way to package those fun little ‘in a mug’ cake mixes perfect for Valentine’s Day!
Further down this post you will find a link to the FREE Project Sheet that has step by step instructions & color photos that you can save to your computer or print out and have on hand for easy reference PLUS you will find a full list of Supplies used to make this at the end of this post.
And here it is…a pouch of cake mix packaged in a cute but really easy to do way…
Easy to do because the pretty polka dotted wrapper you see is simply a Kraft Pillow Box that comes ready to use – no die cutting or expensive tools required – just a little bit of alteration!
You get a pack of 10 of them for $5 making these sweet treat wrappers just 50c each – a great thrifty way to gift some Valentine yummies! Click HERE to find them in the store!
Take your pillow box, trim off a thin strip, add another couple of notches and add your decor – it really is that easy to create and you can find full details in my Project Sheet below.
This is how I blinged mine up – I added a pretty trim to the top using the Decorative Ribbon Punch and made a BIG center panel to really stand out using the largest Stitched Shapes Circle Die and a couple of fantastic sentiment stamps…
I found that fab big ‘Happiness is a cup of…’ stamp in the set Coffee Cafe but of course I wanted to theme it for cake and not coffee and so I omitted it and added the word ‘cake’ which I found in the set Birthday Banners – FULL details on how to do this with a stamp using masking tape is also in the Project Sheet.
I found that Poppy Parade Ink matched brilliantly to the red wording on the cake pouch – don’t you just love when you can get a match like that?! It helps to make projects look so professional!
I added a couple of textured hearts – the small one is from Corrugated Elements and the big one I die cut and textured using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder…
I used Poppy Parade Textured Ribbon to wrap around and hold together my pouch and finished with a knot on the front…
I like using the Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 cake & brownie mixes for this type of project because they have the instructions on how to cook them on each individual packet along with allergy information (some other brands don’t) – my local grocery store carries them in the cake mixes aisle but if you can’t find them in yours, amazon.com is to the rescue and has them here!
