Cupcake Gift Box - SVG Files Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you everyone, for participating and for your kind words about my work! The winners are announced at the bottom of this post.

My nephew's 6th birthday is coming up and I just managed to finish up these gift boxes for his little guests. He had fun filling them up with treats and is looking forward to giving them out.

I'm surprised how different they can look just by changing up the color of paper I'm using – of course the fruit topper takes the cake.

The base and topper is cut from a single sheet of letter-size (8.5 x 11 inches) paper and can hold not only chocolates, but also a Cherry Chapstick.

I've been working on this pattern since last November. The locking tab now seems so obvious. The frosting was originally straight, similar to the Christmas trees as shown in my Craftsy class. That project is actually what inspired this one - something made me to keep going with this and push it further.

I love how the patterned paper spirals in between the complementary paper color, almost like the shadows that play amongst the swirls of a soft ice cream cone.


Here is the assembly video – please leave a comment so I can keep improving! Filming video is quite new to me and there is so much to learn.

To get this party favor started, I'd like to give away my Cupcake Gift Boxes to 3 winners. You will need to have an electric cutting machine and software that can import SVG files. 

To enter, simply post a comment below and include your name and a way to contact you. Alternatively, you can comment here and send your email to paperzeninfo (at) gmail.com.

Giveaway ends: Saturday, July 16, 2016. The winner will be announced on this post. Good luck!

The Cupcake Gift Box pattern is available in my Etsy shop.
