Valentine’s Paper Cake

by Chris on February 14, 2014

My little one is in her last year of elementary school, so this is her last Valentine’s party. We came up with something a little snazzy for her Valentine’s box this year, and it was quite easy to do! How ’bout a little Valentine’s cake?

The supply list is quite simple. I bought a couple of hat boxes for 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I removed the lid from the top one and flipped it upside down. Then I covered it with paper. The bottom box was untouched. Just a cute zebra print! Then, my daughter and I raided my craft supplies and found a bunch of trim and flowers to decorate it with.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the pennant flags and put some stickers on them. I then tied them onto some skewers with craft ribbon.

Some hot glue helped adhere everything together, and we just set it on a cake plate. Looks pretty real, eh?

She won 1st place for “most unique” Valentine’s box, so I’d say she felt pretty good about it!

I hope you’re having a fun (perhaps romantic?) Valentine’s Day! Little one is ice skating tonight, and my son and husband are at a wrestling meet. Looks like it’s just me and the computer this year. :)

So cute and what a fun project to do with kids! Love the mini pennant banner for the top!

Much better than a shoe box with a slit cut out of it! Great job and I love the banner on top! Sorry you spent Valentine’s with your computer. Hope you continue to feel better daily!
