Paper box party favors are a lovely thank you for guests attending a bridal, wedding or baby shower. This 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 slice 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.
