One of the members of the Cricut forum asked me to design a special box to hold small cheesecakes she will be making for an upcoming birthday party. Of course, I couldn’t resist the challenge and got to work last night on Design Studio. I think it turned out very well.
The box bottom has a 5″ square base and is 2 1/2″ high. The top is 2″ high so it’s easy to remove. The box requires two 12″ by 12″ sheets of card stock and the Cricut Expression. I cut the top out of designer paper (from the SEI Bridgeport paper pad.) I cut the bottom out of plain white card stock. The design is all in Plantin Schoolbook.
I used Scor-Tape to hold the box together. I just started using this tape and am really impressed with the strength of it (and the price!)
I put little cutouts in the edges of the box top so it would be easy to lift off. I designed the top to be a snug fit. The cut file contains extra pages for pieces to line the top and bottom of the box. I lined the top with acetate, but you could use vellum or a solid piece of paper you like the look of.
Here is a photo that shows both pieces of the box.
Please let me know if you like my cheesecake box. I love when you leave me comments because I know you’ve been here and left with one of my little gifts for my friends.
If you would like to use this pattern, please help yourself to the Design Studio file.
(Is anyone out there willing to make me some cheesecake? I think I’m hungry.)
