You all know how I love templates and gift boxes. Well, after having just assembled 120+ favor boxes for the wedding, I think I had weddings on the brain when I chose this "Piece of Cake" template for my JUGS project. I've seen so many adorable cakes or pieces of cake made with it so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm NOT using this for my DD's wedding but I surely could have. Went together in a SNAP!
So - here's my simple but (hopefully) elegant wedding favor "Piece of Cake" favor box. I wish I had time to make an entire cake - I think it would be fabulous for a fancy shower or even to put one on each table as part of the decorations.
I started with some stunning white paper from The PaperTemptress. I think this one is called Laser Luster. My photo does not do justice to this gorgeous paper.
I printed the Kelleigh Piece of Cake template directly onto the reverse of this paper, cut it out and assembled. Then I added a strip of pearls, a beautiful floral piece (I got these on sale in the wedding dept of Hobby Lobby for 50¢), and a couple of pearlized hat pins.
I made a simple tag for the box - I punched a heart (Creative Memories) on the same beautiful white paper, then stamped the sentiment (from PTI's Wedding Wishes Additions) and adhered the white heart with dimensionals to a coordinating colored heart from CS.
Of course - this little goodie box is filled with "Hugs + Kisses from the Mr. & Mrs". (We DID use that same sentiment on our favor boxes).

My simple cake box is the COMPLETE antithesis of her BEAUTIFUL shabby chic embellished cake box that she created for JUGS this week! AND that, my friends, is the beauty of this hobby!!
