Exploding Box Cupcake Card

Had in a customer request for an exploding box cupcake card. After  a search about for ideas, I found two great blog posts for inspiration -
Which also links to an excellent tutorial video on youtube. 

The card I created - front view once popped.

I mentally combined both tutorials and The Cupcakes Stamp Set (CL158) from Hero Arts to make my pop up box! (And tailored it to a fiftieth birthday and included some white chocolate frosting, which was an important bit.)

Side view so you can see how the construction works.

One of the flat views for sending. You can also put all the flaps up so the inside is a complete surprise until they open it, but I like this alternative with two flaps down too.

The paper set was a freebie from Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine called The Funky Hand Collection.
Die cut Happy Birthday letters were a metal die from Die'sire Classiques.
