I have such a cute project for you today. I saw this little box on Sam Donald's blog and loved it! I thought what a cute way to give a little something to someone on their birthday, or for that matter you could give it for any occasion - thinking of you, thank you, place card, etc. There are so many uses for this little gem!
I first had to find some cupcake candles. Fortunately, I have some nice candle stores around, but if you don't have any locally you can find so many on the web.
I tried to match up my DSP with the color of the candle. After I finished making the holders, I felt that I needed to make up some tags to dress up the container. I went rummaging through my stamps and found this adorable little cupcake stamp I had purchased at the Scrapbook Show! I colored them in with coordinating SU markers and then actually cut them out - which wasn't too bad! I'm not the best when it comes to cutting little things out but these turned out pretty good.
I used my SU stamp set Perfect Punches for the Happy Birthday wishes and punched them out with the large oval SU punch for all the holders this time around. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and matching CS and DSP to dress up the box.
Then I packaged them up in some clear bags and tied everything together with some matching ribbons.
Here's what's left of the first bunch I made.
I just loved how they turned out! The girls are off to the football game tonight and this weekend we are looking forward to spending Sunday with Jennifer at the local farm feeding the animals, which she loves to do! Have a great weekend and enjoy this wonderful weather!
Thank for stopping by,
