Individual Cupcake Box Tutorial

Happy Thanksgiving! Here is your free tutorial on how to make the individual cupcake box. The pattern and directions for the cupcake itself is in the 12 Days of Christmas 2010 edition.



Box bottom is 8-1/2" x 8-1/2"

Score all four sides at 2-3/4"

Cut off each corner on the diagonal to avoid anything sticking up over the top when folded.

Cut on the score lines up to the intersecting score lines on 2 sides of the box. (Not all four sides and do not cut anything off.)
Apply Sticky Strip to the diagonals of all 4 corners


To cut the opening in the front of the box bottom, lay the score line on the 1/2" line of the paper cutter. Cut from the edge down to within 1/2" of the score next line.


Rotate the paper to the right, lay the score line on the 1/2" mark and cut from that line to the next score line.
Rotate the paper to the right, lay the score line on the 1/2" mark and cut from that line to the next score line.

Rotate the paper to the right one more time, lay the score line on the 1/2" mark and cut from that line to the next score line and the piece should be completely cut off.
Cut a piece of Window Sheet, also known as overhead transparency paper to 2-7/8" x 2-1/2". Apply SNAIL adhesive on all three sides of the cardstock opening and lay the window sheet paper on it. Make sure you line the top up with the top of the box.
Peel the Sticky Strip and assemble the box.

Cut the cardstock for the lid to 4-7/8" x 4-7/8"
Score all four sides at 7/8"
Cut the corners off on the diagonal, then cut the two front corners off as shown in the photo. This is so after you cut the opening in the lid those corners don't show when folded.
Lay the cardstock in the paper cutter on the 1/2" line and cut from the edge to within 1/2" of the next score line.
Rotate the paper to the right, lay the score line on the 1/2" mark and cut from that line to the next score line. Rotate to the right one more time and repeat until the center piece is cut out.
Apply Sticky Strip to all the corners. If you want the lid to have texture, place it on one of the embossing plates and run it through the Big Shot.

This piece of Window Sheet (I know. it looks white in this photo) is for the lid.
Cut it 4" x 2-7/8"
Score the 4" side at 3"
Apply SNAIL adhesive to the three sides of the opening and place the Window Sheet on it placing the folded edge of the Window Sheet where the folded edge of the lid goes.
Peel the Sticky Strip and assemble the box lid.
Place the lid on the box and mark in the center just below the lid for the ribbon holes
Punch with a paper punch or Crop-a-dile

Insert ribbon (I used about 12"-13") tie each end in a knot.
I placed a Mini Glue Dot under each knot to hold it down.
Insert cupcake and enjoy!


Happy Thanksgiving!
