Top Note Cupcake Box

Hi there! Last Friday night I got together with some fellow demonstrators, and we decided to give ourselves a stamping challenge…it was a tricky one, and shortly you'll know why! You may have noticed through reading my blog that I really struggle with using bright colors…I prefer the light pastels or rich earthy tones any day, brights just aren't up my alley ya know?

So here was the challenge…first, use the Big Shot (my favorite thing to do, that'll be a snap!), second, create a box (I love creating boxes and 3d items, so I thought this was going to be a cake-walk!!), and third…use Bold Brights (uh oh, I NEVER use Bold Brights colors, unless it's Christmas and I break out the Real Red! This could be a problem!!!)

So after a glass (or two) of wine one night, I decided to embrace the challenge and whipped up this box shown below. It's similar to other Top Note boxes you've seen, but usually they're made with a top and a bottom that fit together, and I made mine one box with a cover that flipped open.

I was pretty pleased with myself when I finished the box, feeling like I had met the challenge…until the next day when I realized I needed to make 3 more of those boxes, and the chicken scratch on my grid paper made no sense without wine!!!! Well I finally figured it out and completed the rest of my boxes…here they are:

I hope you liked my boxes…now don't forget to come back tomorrow and enter in my sketch challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this box! I have yet to try one but this seems like it’s a better “fit” than the others I’ve seen.
    Thanks for sharing and I hope you post how you made the box part on your blog.
    I’m not a drinker so I’ll probably not be able to figure it out on my own!

  2. Hi, Kerin. I made one of these boxes long ago and linked your March 5, 2009, pattern to my blog entry on my April 5, 2009, post. Now, your March 5, 2009, post and pattern are gone! Is there any way you could send me the pattern? I’d hate to have to disassemble my box to figure it out.
    Thanks, Kathy Beaver
