Any birthday-themed project can be made. Inspired by all of the amazing whimsical birthday cakes that some high end bakers make, I made this "cake of boxes."
I made the flower from a tutorial at Mainly Flowers. I love how it turned out, and I can see myself making many more of these in the future! Each tier of the cake is a box (I got the unfinished paper mache boxes at the craft store), and I glued the bottom lid to the middle box, and the middle lid to the top box. I plan on giving this to my cousin for her birthday...it isn't for another few months, so for now I'll show you would it would look like with gifts:
I really enjoyed these colors, so I just couldn't resist grabbing my coordinating tableware to make it feel like we're having a party!
