It's a Wrap Blog Hop


Welcome to the It’s a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans By L.B. Do you like to receive gifts? How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside…the wrapping; Gift bags, boxes, baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some time to stop in and see everything we have created for you. You should have arrived here from Brenda's Blog, Random Thoughts of a Scrapbooker. If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B.

I love giving gifts in unique boxes. The Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge has several wonderful boxes and one of my favorites is the triangle box. A few years ago I saw one that someone had made to look like a piece of cake and I have been making them ever since.

These are really easy and can be made any you size you want.(as long as it fits on your mat) Mine are 4" long and 1 3/4" deep and I was able to fit two on a 12 X 12 mat. I also used George and Basic Shapes to make a triangle piece for the "icing"on top.
Both pieces were cut from Cooredinations card stock. The pink glitter paper is DCWV. The icing in the middle is cut with the Your Story paper trimmer and the wavy blade. Small flat backed acrylic pearls from Recollections were added to the top and the piece was finished with a piece of rosette lace trim.

The icing on this piece is from Papertrey Ink. It was embossed with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder then the embossing was covered with Cinnamon Stickles. Some Liquid Pearls were scattered over the top also. A border was created with a Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch and this was attached to the edge of the cake. A piece of brown ribbon was added to the center.

As part of this hop I am offering some fun blog candy, A Cricut Holiday Cakes cartridge. To be eligible to win just leave a comment telling me what your favorite kind of cake is. I'll choose a winner with Random.org and announce it here on Tu, July 19th. Be sure to leave me a way to contact you.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my cake gift boxes! Your next stop is Terri at scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com

I'm editing this to add and apology to my blog hop partners. Apparently when I created my post I didn't do the links correctly. I tried to fix it but it just got worse. I hope you will continue on with the hop as there are many other wonderful projects to see! Again, my sincere apologies for this mess up!
Thanks for hopping along with us today. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!

Oh my goodness. I so thought this was real cake and wanted some. These are so adorable. I love them both. Nice touch embossing the frosting and using the drippy goo on the sides.

I love it. Great job.

Such a great idea...
