This one takes the cake!

What a fun way to give an ordinary gift card! The base of the "cake" is a pre-made box purchased in the craft store. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. I covered it with paper, ribbons and buttons. On the lid I added lots of glitter and the flower shapes are from those "Dazzling Die Cuts". The cake stand was assembed from pieces of cardboard and styrofoam also covered in paper, cardstock and ribbons. The large pink scallops were punched out from one of the dazzling die cut sheets, and glued on. How easy is that! Once everything was decorated I attached it all together with a hot glue gun. The birthday girl simply lifted the lid of the "cake" to reveal a gift card and yummy chocolates.

Here's the birthday girl with my daughter after receiving her cake!
