So Sweet

Good afternoon everyone, well not much longer to wait now until Tonic Studios first launch on Hochanda this evening at 8pm,fantastic Dimensions die sets. Today I am sharing the dimensions cupcake box sets.
The card is 7x7 and the layers are from Tonic's basic square and scalloped square layering die sets also the circle layering die sets and the cupcake and banner & heart are  from the cupcake dimensions die set

Loved making this, just using A3 card stock I made a box base big enough to place 4 cupcake boxes inside and the handle is the length of A3 and I die cut the detail of the handle with the dies from the cake slice box and then backed the handle with coral craft perfect card stock. The outer of the holder was decorated with panels from the cake slice box and matched with coral card.
And this is the cake slice box but so many other things you can do with this set the Design team have made amazing samples.

Thank you for joining me today
Until next time

Cupcake box / gift box

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing the first blog post for Tonic Studios Launch on Hochanda we are all so excited there is a real buzz about and we kick off on Hochanda tomorrow thur 30th at 8pm free view channel 85 also available on sky and online for those on Virgin .So first to be launched tomorrow is Cake boxes loved creating with these.
Cupcake box

The box is from the cupcake box but I thought it could be a lovely gift box with a candle inside. To create this box you cut 2x of the cupcake boxes but you trim off the top flap on both glue together one on top of the other and then just cover both sides with extra card stock to the length of box you have made just to cover all the workings to leave a neat finish and then decorated with the decorative panels included in the set ,it would also look great with an acetate  sleeve. Then decorate the top as you wish 

Please join me over the next week as I have so much to share with you all
