Valentines Cake + Cake Box by milkbun Valentines Cake + Cake Box by milkbun

Happy Valentines Day!!

This is the Strawberry Chocolate Cake with Cake Box Toki
Toki = cute pod papercraft you make yourself

This is a little 2inch square cake with a cake box to store it in. There is even room for a little note if you want to give it as a gift =D
I tried very hard to make a heart shaped or round cake but the structures were too complicated and unstable. I would rather the cake be accessable and easy for everyone to make with minimal cutting/folding/glueing. I'll save the tough stuff for another project.
This was also made for *Cute-Craft club. You have till the end of February to make something.

Enjoy, and Happy Valentines Day everyone ^3^


*************************************************

To make your own cake+box toki, all you need to do is:
Download the PDF, print, cut, glue and fold


*************************************************

Super-duper extra instructions you'll never need:

1. Print: Any printer (laser or inkjet) will work well. If you'd like your toki to be sturdier and last longer I suggest using a heavier grade paper if your printer can handle it. To compare, a normal piece of paper is 24lb; 50-60lb is a good weight, but I wouldn't go over 80lb or your toki won't fold correctly.
2. Cut: Scissors work great but if you want to be super precise I personally use an exacto knife and straightedge. Razorblades/boxcutters work too, but PLEASE! Watch those little fingers and never put them in the way of the blade.
3. Scoring: is optional. Scoring means to crease the paper beforehand so it folds on the impressed line very precisely. I do this with the back of my exacto blade making sure to press very lightly. You may also use a mechanical pencil with no lead, the back of a sewing needle, a boning tool or any tool that has a dull point. The goal is to 'score' the paper half way. Use a ruler in this step too. You may score while you're cutting, before you cut or even after you freed the toki from the paper.
4. Glueing: You only need one spot of glue for your tokis. If you have trouble controlling the flow of your glue or your children are squeezing it like a ketchup bottle here is a helpful hint. Drop a dab of glue on a scrap paper; using a toothpick, dip one end into the glue and apply it onto the flap.
5. Tucking: Your final step! Tokis are built with small slices in the flaps so when you tuck them in, it should lock.

Note: If you ever need to transport your little tokis from one location to another, simply squeeze the sides and pull out the flaps. Your toki is now flat and ready to move with you!
