Happy Birthday - Color Day #371

This is my DT project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare Inspiration Board using the two m&m colors of my choice, Yellow and Red. This Thanksgiving week we rented a cabin in Strawberry Arizona and celebrating some birthdays too.  

Started out with The Cutting Cafe's treat cake box and cut on Cricut.  These boxes cut and score perfectly and so easy to put together...a fun project.  Since there were eight of us I was able to make a full cake with these boxes.  Cut polka-dot design paper for top and one side of each box and adhered to box cut.   

The m&m's were an image from the network, re-sized, printed and perfectly cut with my Brother Scan and Cut...thoroughly pleased that I didn't have to fussy-cut them...what a time saver.  While box was still flat, each m&m was adhered with foam tape to raise, adhered to  top and side and added liquid glass for shine and more dimension. This was more time consuming then getting all the boxes put together.  

Boxes were then folded on score lines and put together with 2-sided tape.  Cricut Design Space was used to create each of the letters for our names and the Happy Birthday from red Glitter Paper.  For the bottom of each box using white Glitter tape a scalloped die was used.     

The boxes were filled with a Hostess Cupcake and m&m's. There are three Birthday Celebrations and in each of those boxes was an additional gift of money at the bottom of the box which would not be found until the treats were eaten...which I anticipate that won't take long.
