Paper favor box cake slice tutorial

 

 

 

 

Paper box party favors are a lovely thank you for guests attending a bridal, wedding or baby shower. This craft is a paper cake made up of 12 individual slices, which form a round cake when place together. Each cake slice is a paper container which can be filled with candy, small gifts or anything the hostess of the party wishes to give her guests as a token of her appreciation.

Each paper cake slice is made from an 8.5 x 11  sheet of cardstock. Just print the pdf download onto the sheet of cardstock, cut and glue. It is that easy! This cake looks fabulous displayed on a real cake stand or plate and also works well as a table centerpiece.

You can wrap the cake with a piece of ribbon to simulate icing, and tie the ribbon ends together. Top each cake slice with a paper flower, butterfly, or some frou-frou. My example photo features tiny silk hydrangeas and green cardstock paper leaves. 
Make one "paper cake" for each table at your event, and you will have some thrifty party decor as well. So beautiful and easy on the pocketbook as well!
 
Supplies Needed:
 




Download the free printable PDF (electronic die cut files are also included for those that wish to use their digital die cut machines) and print onto the twelve sheets of beige cardstock.
