I started on page 21 with the Cupcake images. Here's the handbook page:
I cut out the cupcake box at 8 inches and here's how it looked after cutting (please ignore my dirty mat):
Next, I scored the box. The image had cut lines along the edges so I knew right where to score it. Here's the box after scoring:
I cut the cupcakes next to the Box. These will decorate the outside of the box. Here's how they cut:
I glued the cupcake pieces onto the box before folding it. I cut another set of cupcakes out of yellow for contrast:
The great thing about this box is that only one side needs to be glued or taped. I used my ATG gun to glue one of the tabbed edges on the side of the box:
Now the box was ready to be folded together. I put the sides of the box together first:
Folded the bottom of the box by inserting the tabbed edge:
and then folded the top panels of the box. Pretty cute!
I also cut out the phrase "Happy Birthday". I thought one layer would be a shadow of the other, but both pieces cut out at the same size. I did layer the cupcake on one of the phrases and I'll save them for later use on card:
