Once upon a time, a lady at "The Craft Group"celebrated her 25th Wedding Anniversary and her friends gave her a very special cake.
Ok, so the lady with the anniversary was me and the 'cake' was actually 10 individual boxes in the shape of cake slices. What a lovely surprise!
Under Elly's guidance, 10 ladies each made a box and put a special treat and a message inside. It was such a lovely thought and I appreciated it SO much! I loved the 25th Anniversary colours and the silver hearts and butterflies fluttering around on the top.
If Elly could coordinate this for a 25th Anniversary, imagine what she would do for her Aunt Therese and Uncle Ton's 60th Anniversary.
Well imagine no longer because I am going to show you.
Elly made 91 cake pieces (boxes) out of paper and filled them with wrapped chocolate bonbons.
She made 7 full cakes of 12 slices each (and some spares).
All the guests at the party received a piece of 'cake'
as a take home “thank you” gift.
There is Elly in the orange top.
Each slice had the couples' names on the side, a photo on the end and a hand cut out flower on the top.
She made the stand herself which can be used again and again in the future.
Isn't that a really special memento for guests to take home?
I went searching for some instructions on how to make these yourself. There are many companies who sell the pre-cut card. Click here to see how to fold a box from a bought cut out. (Her boxes are no way as nice as the ones above!)
You can try making your own from scratch. Check out this template , enlarge it and print your own.
Thanks for the inspiration Elly!
