.:Tutorial Tuesday - Cupcake Kit Neighbor Gift:.

I originally shared this on Positively Splendid as part of A Swell Noel

Today I’m going to be sharing a super simple, super quick, and super cheap neighbor gift idea.

Cupcakes are pretty trendy right now, so who wouldn’t like to receive their own cupcake making kit?



Here’s what you’ll need:

- gift box (I found this beauty at my favorite store – Target)
- cake mix
- can of frosting
- bottle of sprinkles
- cupcake wrappers
- embellishments and tag for gift box
- tissue paper



I started off by lining my gift box with tissue paper. I had to remove the cake mix from the box for it to fit, but you could easily write the instructions to bake on your gift tag. Arrange everything inside of your box.



You can put the lid on the box and set it aside while you make your gift tag. I used my CAMEO and some cardstock to create mine. I started off by finding the tag shape I wanted in my library. The shape had a double line around it, so I wanted to separate those two lines using the trace feature. I selected the trace area,

and next selected trace outer edge. Then you can separate the original shape from your outer edge traced shape.

Then I copied the shape, and sized them so that one was bigger and one was smaller.

The last thing I did was move the smaller shape out so that I could type my ‘Merry Christmas’ to fit the shape.

Now when they are cut out and placed on top of each other, the words will show through with your bottom color of cardstock. Tie your tag around your box with some ornamental decorations, and you are set!



Seriously, who wouldn’t want to get that, right?
