Wedding season is around the corner, and with that come engagement parties, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties!
If you’re planning to host a party, you’ll need to come up with party decor and favors for your guests or co-hostesses. How about a craft that can meet both those needs? This pretty “wedding cake” would make a lovely centerpiece, and when the party’s over you can take the filled boxes apart to give out as favors!

To make your own wedding cake favor boxes:
Step one: Paint the boxes and lids white. When they are dry, paint with the Glamour Paint to give them some shimmer.
Step two: Cut the bling on a roll so it fits around the lid. Paint the edge of the lid with Mod Podge and press the bling strip into it. I used a clothes pin to hold the bling in place while the adhesive dried.
Step three: stack the boxes to look like a cake. Hot glue the flower clip to the top.
You could glue the boxes together if you want to make a display piece. I opted not to glue mine, so I can fill each box with wrapped sweets and then send each box home with a guest. You could easily change the colors and flowers to match any party theme. Have fun creating!
