Oddball Reindeer Christmas Cupcake Boxes | Stamping Bella

Hi! I'm back with another Stamping Bella tutorial and today I am sharing how I made Christmas Cupcake Boxes featuring the reindeer from Mini Oddball and his Reindeer and the
Festive Oddball Sentiment SetJust when you thought the Oddballs couldn't get any better, along come MINI Oddballs! 💖💖💖 Check out the whole range HERE.

Of course these cupcake boxes can be adapted to suit any occasion. 

Christmas themed paper (used: Maja Designs)
Stitched Circle and Pennant Dies
Scoring board and bone folder
Acetate (optional)

How to:
Stamp one reindeer from Mini Oddball and his Reindeer for each cupcake box. Color with your preferred medium and fussy cut around the outline. Set the reindeer aside. 

For each box, cut -
7" x 7" (2) - score both pieces at 2.25" on all four sides
4-3/8" x 4-3/8" - score at 1" on all four sides

Card Layers -
Box top - 
2-3/8" x 2-3/8" (1) - top
2-3/8" x 2-1/8" (2) - front and back
2.25" x 2" (1) - sides

Box top -
2.25" x 2.25" (1) - top
2.25" x 2" (2) - front and back
2-1/8" x " 1-7/8"(1) - sides

Box bottom - 
2-3/8" x 2-1/8" (3)

Cut one of the 7" x 7" pieces as shown below for the box bottom

Cut the other 7"x7" piece as shown below for the top of the box. 

Cut the 4-3/8" x 4-3/8" piece as shown below, then cut out a circle from the centre panel. The circle needs to be big enough to place the cupcake into it. 

Adhere the front and top panel to the box top. 

Apply adhesive to the inside of the bottom outer sections and adhere to the outside of the outer middle panels. The panels on the outside will be shorter but will be cut down and covered. 

Cut diagonally from the bottom of the box front up to the score line at the back. 

Cut the card and paper pieces for the side panels diagonally and adhere the paper to the card. 

Adhere the side panels to the box top. 

On the bottom section of the box, adhere the side paper panels and the front paper panel. 

Apply adhesive to each of the outer tabs and adhere to the inside of the adjacent panels to make the box shape

Place the box top onto the bottom 

Apply adhesive to the inside of the flap on the top and adhere to the back of the box bottom. Once that is secure, adhere the paper/card panel over it. 

Fold down the 1" sections of the 4-3/8" x 4-3/8" piece of card and insert into the box. 

Place the cupcake into the holder. 

*Alternative - cut a circle in the top of the box and adhere a piece of acetate to the inside so the cupcake can bee seen through the box. 

Cut a 2" stitched circle from card and a 1.75" circle from paper and adhere them together. Adhere the reindeer to the front of the circles using foam tape/dots, them adhere the circle to the front or top of the box as desired - also using foam tape/dots. 

Stamp a sentiment from the Festive Oddball Sentiment Set  and cut out using a pennant or bookplate die. Adhere to the box with foam tape/dots and decorate the box as desired.
