I just completed this cupcake for the On Pins Challenge that was hosted by Sis. Be sure and check out her blog to see the beautiful mini album she made for her project.
The challenge was to make a pin-inspired project. I had no trouble deciding which pin I was going to use. It is the one here. I wanted to make one of the cupcakes. Miranda has some gorgeous projects on her blog and I was lucky because she had a video on how to make the cupcake. You can find the link to her video on her blog here.
I followed Miranda’s directions, except that I cut the flower petals with my Cricut rather than using a punch. I used George and Basic Shapes <Flower2>, cut at 1.125″ and I hid the center hole in CCR. I ended up using more than one 12″ x 12″ sheet full of flowers. I think I placed mine a little closer together than Miranda did. I used pearl pins I got at Joann’s to place the pins on the stryofoam. The paper is all from Graphic 45.
The cupcake opens and inside is a little banner that says “Happy Birthday.”
I cut the banner from Birthday Bash at 1.5″ using the print Graphic 45 paper. I cut the shadow layer from Bazzil cardstock. I threaded it together using some DMC pearl cotton. The letters are from a Cuttlebug Plus Embossing folder, Monogram Seals. I inked the letters with Distress Ink.
I also made a box for the cupcake for a different challenge. I will share a picture here, but will put the details for the box in my next post.
The butterfly is from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art and was cut at 2″ from Graphic 45 paper. I cut several layers and on the top layer I added some coarse crystal glitter. I put brown pearls on the body.
