Yummy Chocolate Cake Gift Box

This was so fun to make for the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut, which was to make a project with a cupcake (or other baked good) on it. I love chocolate and saw how a friend of mine had used gathered ribbon on a cupcake project and loved it. I sewed a basting stitch down the center of a length of ribbon, gathered it, and hot glued it on, tucking the ends under. I painted a wood ball red and stickled it after it dried. Wasn't sure about a stem, but I think it looks yummy without it. The box is off of Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. It opens in the back and I used just one mini glue dot to hold it closed.

It cut at 9", and it's a pretty good size for a small gift. Have a fab weekend my friends!
