Cupcake House Warming Party Favor

I have a special little box to share today. My son and daughter in law are in the process of buying a house right now and will hopefully be able to have a house-warming party in the next couple of months. I'm so excited for them and very proud of their accomplishments. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful daughter in law. We get along great and love to craft together.

I had this idea pop in my head for cupcake boxes that look like moving boxes. I used a piece of 12x12 craft paper cut in half. This way I'm able to make two boxes with one piece of paper. A little scoring and cutting and there you go.


The arrow is a clear stamp from the set called Adventure USA from Close to my Heart. The words are just written by me.


On this first example I cut out a scallop circle with a Stampin' Up punch to make a window to see the cupcake inside. Thank You was stamped using a clear stamp from the set called Say it in Style by Close to my Heart.



On my second example I used a cuttlebug embossing folder to make the craft paper looked corrugated like cardboard. I like the way it turned out. I also used a Spellbinders Nestability to cut the rectangular opening on this one. I then used that cut-out as the tag on top of the box.


I really like the way these boxes came out. Super easy to make, but super cute as well.
