This is project #4 in the Sizzix Scoreboard Dies Blog Hop - Cake Die. It was quick and easy to assemble and decorate and makes a perfect gift box for a birthday present!
I wrapped wide ribbon around the base and adhered the ends with glue dots, then added a narrower ribbon on top. The "Happy Birthday" tag was created in Word. I added a small silver brad at each corner then glued it on top of the ribbon. I made a flower from a 36" piece of crêpe paper streamer. I ruffled the edges first then gathered it and rolled it into the flower. I glued it to the top by placing the edges into the center of a large dollop of Elmer's® Tacky glue, which I had squeezed onto the center of the lid. Each scallop was embellished with a jewel sticker. I glued a cake candle base at the center of the flower, then added the candle. WARNING: DO NOT LIGHT THE CANDLE! If I were giving this as a gift, I would remove the wick, or replace it with a fun, musical candle - one that plays "Happy Birthday" when it is turned. How fun would that be..... Enjoy!
