This beaded cake box kit just contains beads. So, you also need the tutorial to complete the project. You can find it here>>
I put each kit together individually for the customer. So, please include a note with your order to tell me your favourite colours and I will build a personalised kit for you.
For this reason, your order will always be a ‘back order’. But they usually ship next day. I will always email you if there is any problem with your order.
The project would make a perfect gift for Mother’s day, a birthday or any other special celebration. So, the box measure about 4″ (10cm) across the base and is about 3″ (7.5cm) high. It will hold a few goodies!
Your Kit Contains
The beaded cake box kit contains the following materials:
- size 10 delicas in 5 different colours (total 35g across all the colours)
- size 11 delicas in gold and green (about 5g of each)
- Superduos in green (about 5g)
- Forget-me-not 5mm flower beads
- 4mm pearls
I have not included beading thread as most people have their personal favourite (and plenty of it!). So, please use your own thread. You will also need to supply a beading needle and scissors to make this beaded cake box.
Techniques and Experience
You will be using circular and tubular Peyote to make your beaded cake box. Then some freeform beading to add the decoration. And even count peyote and basic brick stitch to make the label.
This is a tricky project, so it is definitely for advanced beaders.
The story behind this beaded cake box kit
I know I’ve mentioned this before: I’m a member of a great Facebook beading group called ‘Seed Beads and More‘. It is a closed group, set up and run by Anita Adamson. But you are most welcome to apply to join.
The group is very friendly and active. Every month, they have a beadalong in which a designer, or designers share some patterns for free for the group to use during that month. So, members just need to buy the materials for the project. Then bead along together and the whole group gets to share experiences. It’s great fun!
So, in April 2018, I was one of the designers contributing patterns. The theme was ‘Katie’s Marvellous Diet’. So, you guessed it, my beaded cakes took centre stage. This beaded cake box kit provided the materials for the advanced members who wanted to try this project.
As Mother’s Day (in many parts of the world) is just around the corner, April seemed like a good time to get that special gift beaded for Mum. So, I designed a cake that would work perfectly for the occasion.
It also works perfectly for birthdays or at other special event you want to celebrate in beads!
