Piece of Cake: Happy Birthday!!

Hi!! Today I have a fun 3D piece of cake box to share with you today!! 

I created the cake box using the Cricut's Sweet Tooth Boxes Projects Cartridge. I cut it at the booklets suggested size of 10.75 using the Cricut Craft Room and my expression. I added white gel pen stitching on the side.

I added a face to the top from Peachy Keen's new PK-1202 The Moodies 2 1/4" using jet black Stazon on ink. I then paper pieced the eyes and mouth on white card stock. I colored them in with Copic markers.

The cute little candle was stamped and cut out from PKSC-December 2012 Stamp Of The Month set. I colored it too with Copic markers. I added Stickles Glitter and Inkssentials Glossy Accents to the body. The Happy Birthday sentiment also comes from this set.

I finished it off by adding Offray's Small Ivory Satin Rosettes with a hot glue gun. I thought they looked so much like decorative icing. I was so fortunate when I went to buy them they rang up for a penny at Michaels. How sweet is that?
