peaches and cream…

Hello dear blog friends.  Todays’ new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is called ‘Peaches and Cream’ and is inspired by a photo that I will show you in just awhile.  I decided to play with the inspiration photo and baked created a cake in a box…

PaperPrimrose TSTR1RebeccaDeeprose Box-4.1 (1)

This sweet little 4″ cube is really much simpler to make than it appears.  If you want to give one a try, just Google ‘Exploding Box Tutorial’ and you will be directed to loads of written instructions and videos.  I made this one from 1-1/2 sheets of 12 x 12″ card stock…

The top and sides of this box were covered with some papers pretty papers and topped with a fabric rose.  I added some paper leaves, twined a string of small pearls in and out of the petals and added two punched butterflies.  The base layer of each butterfly is glittered with white glitter.  I used some white stamens from Michaels’, tinted them then glued clear micro beads onto the heads.  They make lovely butterfly antennae…

To tilt the rose, a double bow was glued behind it.  When the lid is lifted, the side walls fall down and here’s what you see…

I made the little layered cake by die cutting three circles (small, medium and larger) and thee strips of paper for the sides of each layer.  Before assembling the parts, white flourishes were embossed and then lots of tiny roses, buds and sprigs were added.  This is a really fun way to decorate a cake!  Not a single bowl needs to be washed…

The Panel behind the cake was made with a design element from Crafty Secrets’ digital file called ‘Rosy Wishes‘.   I love to fussy cut, so instead of printing it directly onto the paper (which would work beautifully), it was printed onto a white sheet, the roses and leaves were quickly colored and then fussy cut.  The center of the banner was stamped with the sentiment and attached at each end, allowing the banner to curve up above the base…

The two side panels were covered with the same patterned base paper and then a die cut panel of coordinating paper.  A paper rose and some leaves are place in opposing positions on the left and right panels…

This tiny little cake was perfectly suited to the smallest little roses I had been keeping in my stash…

A wrap of white tulle was loosely wrapped around the base and two small, punched butterflies were coated with glitter before they landed gently on the top…
