Mix up some fun patterned papers; cut, ink and assemble the cupcake for your upcoming celebration using the swirl top pieces and panels. Add the cherry from the Milkshake Box file to top the cupcake box.
Lift the lid…
and there’s a party inside! The platform in the bottom of the box consists of the panel from the Cupcake stand file. Jan scored the scalloped edge to fold down. She cut a slit in the center and placed this piece on a piece of cardstock scored and folded to create a rectangle open-sided box. Attach the elements directly through the slit of the panel to the rectangle below. Aren’t these fun additions?
The candle is from the Cupcake Center Panel Card and the flags for the banner are from the Vintage Camper file.
Take a peek at the files you have in your stash and it’s likely you’ll have some options for details you may not have considered previously. It’s always fun to play!

It’s that season of the year. Graduation time! And what would be more fun than creating an explosion box with a little bit of an upgrade for your favorite grads! Jan used the Graduation Explosion Box SVG and added a few additions to it. Take a peek:
The upgrades? She changed the mortar board top into a shaker box, filled with all sorts of sprinkles and die cuts.
Jan then created an extra layer of flaps for some additional options (adding pictures and sentiments (not all shown) and then using the Gift Card holder that comes with the file, she used stamps and transparent inserts as a “pop-up” for the central focal point once the box lid is lifted off. Jan will have more info about the “upgrades” on her blog.
Play with school colors, add images from the year and a few other details that will make this a one-of-a-kind gift never to be forgotten for your special grad this year.

If you haven’t made this teapot, the Round Teapot is the perfect centerpiece of a fun tablescape to host a Spring themed tea party or Mother’s Day tea. Jan is sharing her version with us today. Then, be sure to add a couple of cute cups made using the Lots of Hearts Treat Cup.
The cup handles are from the round teapot file and are sized down to fit the cup. Be sure to add some saucers and several trays filled with goodies. You’re now ready to spend a lovely afternoon or evening with Mom and a few friends
The printed panels of the teapot and the cups are made using glossy photo paper. Jan wanted the teapot and cups to have a porcelain look. The top of the lid was also made using the photo paper. Add a bit of gold leaf or using a liner paint brush and paint a little gold on the panels for some additional highlights and trim. For more details, check out Jan’s blog.
…And since the teapot is a box, you can add some special goodies as a going home gift for your special guest.
Tea Party Treats?
The large and small trays are from the Serving Trays file. Jan found a printable miniature dollhouse wallpaper to use for the panels. The trays are a perfect addition to your first Spring Tea Party. Don’t forget your favorite teas or drink mix packets.
The larger tray can be filled with a few mini cupcakes, cake balls, bitesize cookies or other treats in your favorite Spring flavor.

Once cut, the Easter Egg box is a very quick to assemble. The box panels are cut from the same color as the box base, the added details include foiled leaves (from FunLurn.com) and the flowers on the upper panels are made using some ink and a cotton swab. The two colors of the ink, create a soft, subtle look and the finished pattern almost looks like purchased printed paper. Bonus: It only takes a few minutes to add those flowers to the panels.
For the bottom panels, Jan used a basket weave embossing folder… and swipe the raised areas with the darker of the two inks used for the flowers on the upper panels. Lightly ink the edges of the panels before adding them to the egg base. Choose any pattern to decorate the panels…. That’s half the fun!
For the inserts on the inside of the egg, the grass, eggs, chick and bunny were resized to fit inside the egg. Measure the egg bottom opening from side to side to determine fit. Elements and placement will determine the size and height. Adhere them as desired on strips of cardstock and attach the strip to the inside of the egg box bottom with glue or strong tape.
There are so many different ways you can decorate the Easter Egg Box, inside and out!
If desired, add some “grass” and a few jellybeans or chocolate in the back of the egg bottom. Add the top and your Easter Egg box is ready for gifting! Additional details for this project can be found on Jan’s blog. Besides the Easter Egg Box, there are several other products you might be interested in.

After recently viewing the original, animated film of Alice in Wonderland, Jan created this Wonderland version using the Victorian Top Hat file. Roses, hearts, feathers, a pocket watch and more are featured in this Spring themed Wonderland hat design.
This project is easy to recreate.
Assemble the hat side, brim and top as shown in the assembly video using the link above.
A strip of white tulle is used in place of the hat bands. Feathers and hearts were tucked into the tulle and used as additional decoration. A few more hearts were sprinkled around the brim of the hat.
The rolled roses are from the hat file. Jan added some yellow stamens to the center of each rose with a drop of hot glue. The pocket watch is a resized version of the Round Candy Box. The watch measures about 1 ½ inches in diameter and is about ½ inch deep. Jan used hot glue to secure these elements to the hat. Add additional elements to complete the theme of a Wonderland themed hat.
Check out the library in your software.
Using shapes from the SCAL Library, select the rabbit ears and hearts.
Jan’s addition of the rosette is easy to replicate using a horizontal rectangle and vertical score lines at regular intervals across the rectangle.
Enjoy your make.
