Craft That Party: DIY Ruffle Cake Valentines Box

DIY Ruffle Cake Valentines Box

Need a place to store your special Valentines? Let's make a ruffle cake Valentines box, shall we?

crepe paper
glue stick
round gift box or hat box (found mine at Michaels)
white paper


Step 1: Line box with white paper 
Step 2: Use a pencil to trace a line around the box showing where the lid meets the box. 
Step 3: Add a row of glue stick to the box. To create the ruffle, press crepe paper into the glue every 1.5 inches or so, this will create a pleat. Continue to pleat until you reach your pencil line indicating where to stop. 

Fill the box with Valentines!

    think I would never understand. It seems too
    complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
