Cupcake with a Cherry on the Top!!


I have my PaperWorksCo DT project to share with you lovely folks today.  As I'm scheduled for 'Free for All' Mondays I thought I would do a project that has been sitting on my 'to do' list for a rather long while!  This super cute ... and calorie free ... cupcake gift card holder is absolutely deliciously lovely!  I followed this tutorial here on you tube.

I used some beautiful Doodlebug 'Sweet Treats' paper for the cupcake wrapper and a 3" styrofoam ball for the 'cake'.  Grosgrain ribbon, prima flowers, paper doily and glitter are some of the main ingredients in baking this cupcake!

Here's a view of the 'cherry' on top and the paper doily mimicking the frosting.   The picture below shows where the gift card is held and definitely hidden away inside the cupcake.

This project was an absolute delight to make and I know I've found my teacher gifts for the end of the school year!  Now to get baking lots more cupcakes!!

Thanks for stopping in everyone and for all the lovely comments you leave me!  I'm busy volunteering in my son's class this morning but hopefully I can catch up on some blog hopping a little later today!
