Build a Cupcake Criss Cross Box

I originally had thought to make these Criss Cross boxes, made from the Pennant XL Die, for a Candy Wrapper Swap that I did at Leadership.  Inside the box is a wrapped Kit Kat bar!  However, I changed my mind.  I still think it is cute, so thought I'd share it here since it is Bring on the Cake Suite week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Our Occasions Edition subscription is JUST getting started!  It's not too late to join!



Would you like a tutorial for this?  If so, I may be persuaded to make one up!  Leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do!


I did use the Pennant XL Die to make the box out of Daffodil Delight Textured cardstock.  I didn't like the seam in the back, so I added a matted layer of Pumpkin Pie Textured Cardstock in the back.  I wrapped around a strip of the new Sale-A-Bration Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper.  The Scallop Circle is from the Pennant Die also, cut from Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock.  I layered on a 1 3/4 Circle Punch of Old Olive that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  The base of the cupcake liner was punched from another pattern in Ice Cream Parlor DSP.  The frosting is punched from yet another pattern, except I covered it with Versamark and then Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to make it sparkle!  I added a small Itty Bitty Punch Flower of Daffodil Delight and a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of it.  The cupcake is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals!



Inside, the Kit Kat Candy Bar is wrapped with another pattern in the Ice Cream Parlor DSP, and wrapped with Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon that is tied around with a knot.  Can you believe I've used up almost an entire package of that Ice Cream Parlor DSP already!!!  I can't wait to order more!  TODAY is the first day of Sale-A-Bration…every $50 order you place, you can choose one of the selections in the Sale-A-Bration brochure!  Make sure to place your ONLINE ORDER with me!  I certainly appreciate your business!


Hope you like my Build a Cupcake Criss Cross Candy Wrapper box!  I thought it turned out CUTE!!!

I love when I find something to do with a die other then what it was intended for; as you get your money's worth out of it then.  I would so love to see a tutorial on how you made this.
Thanks so much.

Great give idea.  You are so talented.  It would be fantastic if you could share how you made it.  I have the Pennant Die and so far it is much underused, this could turn it into a must have.
