Cake in a Box?

So it is my day over at Creative Critterz Imaginations for the April's Fool post. This was a hard one I mean really, how do you make something from paper for April's Fools day? So my thought was cake in a box, you know off of the snake in a can?! I printed my papers from the yummy cart at full sheets, the tag and 2 cupcakes at 1.5". I then cut the box from sweet tooth boxes at 9" and inked all the edges. I took some craft wire about 20 gauge and wrapped it around my glue bottle to get the coil shape. I then cut a strip of paper and covered it with glue and put it over the last couple of twists of the wire and glued it down in the bottom of the box. I then glued the two cupcakes together on the top of the wire. I then carefully pushed it down into the box and put the lid on and tied with ribbon, (it won't stay on without the ribbon). So when the person opens it out pops the cupcake! When doing the wire make sure you cut it long enough to have enough spring to pop out of the box. I hope you like it!
