Cupcake Box Tutorial

Take a piece of 12 x 12 paper and score it at 4 inches and 8 Inches.

Turn the paper around and do this again
Then score a diagonal line from the corner to the first score line
Do this on all four corners.  Then cut off the excess corners like so ;
Do this to all four corners, your paper should finish up looking like this;
Score at 1/2 an inch all the way round on your straight edges NOT the diagonals
Cut away the 1/2 inch strips from all four corners

It should look like this when you are finished, sorry about the blurred photo :-)

Now you can glue down the tabs, glue them down to the side of the paper that is going to be the 'inside' of your box
Then fold the box together
To make the cup cake holder for the inside of your box you need to cut a piece of card 4 and 7/8's of an inch by 4 and 7/8's.  Score 1/2 an inch on all four sides, again cut off the corners.
Punch out a 1 and 3/4 circle place this in the middle of your card and cut around it
 Once you've cut out your circle fold in your edges.
Place this inside your box
To make the lid you need a 6 x 6 piece of card, score 1 inch all the way around
Cut down to the first score line on opposite sides to make your glue tabs
Glue these tabs down to finish your lid.  Pop this on top of your box

As you can see I've popped a flower, with a gem on top of my box for decoration
