Cake Slice Bonbonniere

This was dreamed up because of Leonie... She came over one day and saw the boxes that Aaron had been busily designing... She really liked the Slice box... And later asked if she could have the pattern because she wanted to enter it into one of our PaperANGELS monthly Challenges... This was our embellishment Challenge in July... She won... I told it cause it was of our wonderful cake box!!! heheh..

So anyway I LOVED it and had to make one for myself.. With this one I have made the flower with the scallop circle punch and our beautiful Raspberry Tart DSP.. I cut out 9 in DSP and one in Rose Red Card Stock. I then pleated each DSP scallop (not the card one) between each hump and then glued them on to the scallop in the center with our Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive...6 form the bottom layer and 3 sit in the top layer... Then I took my 2-Way Glue Pen and added some glue to the edges of each scallop and sprinkled light Pink Serpernova Glitter on it and shook off the excess....

I LOVE Sparkly bling bling!!! How beautiful is this embellishment... Very special indeed...

I hid the join at the back of the box with a piece that was overturned to look a little like a buckle... Looking at it now close up perhaps I should have had the stitching run the same way... but oh well that is just minor.. I love it.. How divine would this look on the table for a wedding or 21st or something very elegant and sophisticated...
Gorgeous Cake Slice BonbonniereWARNING... It is time consuming making the embellishment and hand cutting the box.. so do not go for hundreds.. else you will be having nightmares of the box chasing you and eating you up!!! ARGHHH... hehe

Have fun... Love Ursula
