Tea Light Cake Box

Here is the featured project for July's class. We made a cute cake using a Sizzix Cake Box Scoreboard Die and the new Greenhouse Gala DSP from SU. I love this new DSP, it's so cheerful! The roses took the longest to make, but they are doable and just takes a little patience. We sprayed some Smooch Spritz on the roses in Gold Glow, so pretty! A side view of the cake...
This is the inside of the cake. I added a strip of CS to the inside to hide the little tabs on the bottom piece.
On the cover, we used an eyelet setter and a hammer (remember those days?) to make a hole so that you could turn on the tea light candle. When we assembled the candle on the top of the cover, we had to make sure that the switch lined up in the hole!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be posting some gift enclosures and scallop envelopes tomorrow and also the bonus card that we made!

This was really cute and fun to make, but I will say that those flowers take a bit of time... in the end they were really worth making! Thanks for a great class Teri!!
