Step 3: Cutting

  • On the template we have a border.
  • Apply glue on the reverse side outside the border and stick the template on the white thick paper,
  • Use steel scale to make cuts
  • Using a sharp object like compass, outline where the paper will be folded

Step 4: Popping

  • Using gentle force push and fold to get cake popped out
  • Start from bottom then middle and then top

Step 5: Customise and Finishing Touches

I was not satisfied with just having cake pop up. I wanted more

  • Added few
    • balloons
    • Candle
    • Rose
  • Look for silhouette icons on internet if you want

Stick the card on a red colored paper, write your message

Gift the card to your loved one

why not put the template in the downloadable pdf instructions instead of link to another location that doesnt have it or it doesnt work!? its an A4 template so it would be only 1 additional pg if you included it here?
bit annoying to have read through the entire thing, download your instructional guide here and then find that the link is rubbish.
