What's better than one cupcake???

TWO, of course! :o)

Trisha wanted a box that would hold two cupcakes. So, I fiddled and stretched and cut and fiddled some more.... Voila! A double cupcake box!Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

Plenty of room if your cupcakes have mile-high frosting. (Mmmm...) but again, meant to hold standard (small) cupcakes.

Sorry, no time to decorate the box. My son wanted the contents immediately! He is the cupcake quality control expert in the house, ya know. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net As you can see from the picture, cupcakes make even a sick 3yr old smile.

Hope your Saturday is going well.

Special thanks to my friend Lois who introduced me to The Tape Depot. Let me explain.... Are you familiar with ATG guns? Ok, well, I wasn't quite ready to plunk down $42 plus shipping and tape costs to try one out. Lois told me that Tape Depot has a similar one and it is only $25. Coooool! A bit more budget friendly for me. So I checked it out! Oh my goodness, if you are still using glue or those small tape runner things you need to upgrade! The Tape Depot's prices are great and their customer service is awesome! I received the dispenser 2 days after I ordered it.

The picture on their website shows the dispenser with tape.

Please note: The dispenser does NOT come with tape. You need to order it also or you'll have a brand new gadget and won't be able to do anything with it.

(Yes, it's true. I'm speaking from experience.) Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net
Another plus: The tape is Acid Free and you don't have to pay extra for that feature! Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net{Yeah baby!}

Also, it's very user friendly. The instructions to load the dispenser with tape (remember, it comes to you empty) were super easy to understand and follow. I was afraid it would be big and bulky and I would hate it. Nope! It's very light weight and easy to operate. It was an easy transition. I still have a several bottles of my favorite Scotch Quick Dry glue (bought some when they were on sale for $3) but I fear they may be collecting dust for awhile now that I have my new ATG gun. :o)
Ok, I've given my 2cents worth on the subject. Do with it what you will.


  1. Well thanks a lot, Enabler! LOL I am a soon to be proud owner of an ATG! I was holding out because of the price too, but the Tape Depot pricing was just enough to push me. Thanks for the the heads up.

    Oh, I would love the double cupcake box too :)


  2. Thanks for the advice on the ATG. Good to know!

  24. Would like your 2 cupcake box, Jen.

    ATGs are wonderful. I got mine for the same price as yours a year ago from Tape Solutions. I stock up on tape twice a year. It's definitely been one of my better craft buys.

  25. Hi Jen,

    Just asked for the single cupcake box...now I see this bigger one and would LOVE that one too. Thanks so much in advance!! WAY CUTE!!

    Sincerely, Sara

  26. Hi Jen, You must be a mind reader. I was using this for birthday cupcakes and I thought I really would like a box a little bigger for my Critter muffins, they are butterflies and ladybugs, just a little to big for the original box. Please send me the file. Thanks.

  27. This is so cute Love that it holds two of them. Could I please get the cut file for this.

  28. Jen, thanks for the single cupcake box cutfile. Would love to have the double cupcake box. pkmannix@yahoo.com

  29. Hi Jen! Can you send me this cut file please? Your son is too cute! =) Thanks,


  30. Too, too cute!! I love both boxes - what a great canvas to decorate. I'm just getting started with design studio software so I'd really appreciate your cut files for the single & double boxes. (jentalley@gmail.com) Thanks!!

  31. Jen,
    Love both cupcake boxes. Can you please
    send me the cut files for the double & single.

  32. niffybox-- thanks. would love to have it. kathy_orta@yahoo.com

  33. Thanks for the info regarding Tape Depot. You got me hooked. The ATG tape is double sided right? I assume it is but had to make sure, coz I could find it in the description.

    Also, which tape is best for just regular paper crafting. There was 4 different types. I know one of the tapes is removable but that left 3 others to choose. I believe the difference is the thickness. Since I've never bought I figure I'd ask you which one you bought.


  34. I would love to have the double cupcake cut file.


  35. Jen, the double cupcake holder is just perfect. I always want to take a little something to some peopl on their birthday and I always end up making two because I don't want to walk in with one cupcake for the person and not one for their spouse! Will they hold the large cupcakes, or just the standard size? This double holder is a must for every cupcake lover. Thank you so much.

    Susan W.

  36. Once again you have created a great project, the 2 cupcake box. I would love to have a copy of the cut file. Thanks


  37. Wow, a twofer...cupcakes (box that is) and new tape gadget. I'm ordering mine now.

    I have some really big cupcake fans in my family and this will be well used. Thanks so much. I hope your son feels better soon.

    webserendipity@gmail.com Thanks again.

    Oh yeah I saw the single cupcake box can I have that as well. You are SO SWEET.

  38. First of all, your son sure doesn't look sick to me....LOL what a cutie he is. Next, Me, being the box junkie that I have just has to have this box too,.... I love it Jen. Take care.
