Cake Favor Boxes That Will be the Hit of Any Party

Paper cake favor boxes are a lovely way to thank you for guests attending a bridal, wedding or baby shower. They are constructed from cardstock and are filled with little trinkets or even a slice of real cake. Make some paper cake favor boxes today that are not only beautiful table decorations but are also a delightful party favor box your party guests will love.

The craft is a paper cake made up of 12 individual slices, which form a round cake when place together. Each cake slice is a paper container which can be filled with candy, small gifts or anything the hostess of the party wishes to give her guests as a token of her appreciation.

Each paper cake favor box is made from an 8.5 x 11  sheet of cardstock. Just print the pdf download onto the sheet of cardstock, cut and glue. It is that easy! This cake looks fabulous displayed on a real cake stand or plate and also works well as a table centerpiece.

You can wrap the cake favor boxes with a piece of ribbon to simulate icing, and tie the ribbon ends together. Top each cake slice with a paper flower, butterfly, or some frou-frou. My example photo features little silk hydrangeas and green cardstock paper leaves.
Make one “paper cake” for each table at your event, and you will have some thrifty party decor as well. So beautiful and comfortable on the pocketbook as well!
