Easter suprise....

Here is an awesome little project that you can make for any occassion.
I happen to chose Easter. I got the measurements from incrediably talented Nicole Heady's site. Thank you Nicole!
You do have to modify the size of the outside box depending on which brand
of cake you choose to buy, they do run different so note that. Otherwise here
are the measurements I used for pillsbury funfetti cakebox. You will need
2 pieces of cardstock cut 5 5/8 x 11 for outside box. Score both pieces at both ends 1 1/2. Then assemble around box with double back adhesive.
For the front flap with the crystal candies you will need to cut 1 sheet of the
same color cardstock of your box at 5 5/8 x 11 again, yet this time scoring at 1 inch at the bottom then at 7 3/4 and then at 8 3/4.
When done fold the pieces and adhere with the double back adhesive to the first box. Then for the inside holder for the crystals you will need a strip of cardstock 10 1/2 x 1/2 inch. Score each end at 3/4 and then score the rest of the strip every 1 1/2 so you get the peaks and mountains effect.
Moving on to the front pocket cut a piece of cardstock 7 x 6 in, laying the cardstock the 7 in long direction score 1/2 inch on three sides leaving the top untouched so that you can cut the scallop pocket. After you score the 1/2 inch then score all three sides at the 12 inch mark. I know this sounds confusing but you are making a pocket so keep that in mind. When all three sides are scored add adhesive and attach to the front of the box flap. You will then need to make the folded over flap to hold the box together. It should be cute at 1 1/2 x 4 then score it at 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 decorate it and attach it. Oh make sure you put your ribbon on very first before your pocket goes on! you will need to pieces of ribbon cut at 18 inches attach with double sided adhesive. Then decorate it, I used a vellum envelope for the pocket and filled it with those little hard sugar images you put on a cake. Hope I got all the directions right! Let me know if you need help! Have fun! I would love to see what you all come up with so email me yours! xoxo
