Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to 5-5/8” x 10-3/4”. Score each end at 1-1/2”. Apply Sticky Strip and attach end to end. Slide cake mix inside.
The box closure is a piece of cardstock cut 1-1/2” x 5”. The layering designer series paper (DSP) is 3-3/4” x 1-1/4”. It only covers the front and top and does not reach all the way to the back. Secure to the back of the box with Sticky Strip. The front will be secured with a sticky Velcro circle.
ADD HANDLES NOW!!
Ribbon handles. You’ll need approx. 52“of ribbon. Place Sticky Strip all the way around the box and the front piece about an inch or so from the edges. Start on the bottom, come all the way up the back, leave excess for a handle, go back down the other side of the back and under the bottom, up on the front side, leave room for a handle (make sure they are the same length) and down the other side of the front to the bottom of the box. Cut off excess ribbon. If you are using Sticky Strip, it is slightly repositionable, so you can straighten anything that may need it.
The front pocket is a piece of cardstock cut 5-1/4” x 7”. Score 3 sides at 1/2” and 1”. Use the Scallop Edge Punch to make a decorative edge along the top. Cut off the corner pieces as shown in the photo.
Test Tubes: I bought mine from SKS Bottling because #1, they are my favorite source for fun things to decorate, but #2 because I need to buy a large quantity. The tubes I used are 3/4” x 6”, order number 0890-17, 48/in a bag for $21.12. You can order smaller quantities from Papertrey Ink.
The favors were inspired by Barb Mullikin.

The image design with the cut out circles was inspired by Dawn Griffith.
