Happy Birthday Cupcake Gift Card Holder

Morning. I have seen these cute little cupcakes over the internet for sometime now and have been wanting to make one forever. If you know me, you know that I LOVE cupcakes! Anything and everything...I love cupcakes. I know it's a craze all over now!  I also like to make cupcakes and eat them...oh yes!  Unfortunately I can't make and experiment with flavors as much as I would like to because if I did that I would most definitely find myself eating them and that is not a good idea,  If you know what I mean.  So for now I will just have to get by in making "pretend" cupcakes. I actually ended up taking a class at my LSS for the cupcake itself, although I tweaked the way I made this one some. I also wanted a box to put my cupcake in so I made the box.  I have LOTS of pictures....so here ya go....













I originally got this idea from Tresa Black. She is a CTMH consultant (as was I)  Then I took the class from Suzanne at my LSS. What I ended up doing is combining both of their cupcakes to make this one. Basically, I liked a little of what both of them did. Now for the details.  The paper is from SEI and CTMH.  I used about 18 ft of ribbon for the frosting, yea, it takes alot. You can also use flowers or fabric for the frosting!  The cherry is a 3/4" round bead that I painted red and immediately sprinkled glitter over it. I then took a piece of heavy twine or hemp, colored it red using my copic and strung it through the hole for the stem. I added liquid glass to hold it!  I then attached the cherry to a toothpick and attached the toothpick to a piece of cardstock that goes into the inside of the cupcake to hold a gift card.

I have to tell you, this is not a project you would make for just anybody...why? Because it takes lots of time!! lol  However, my second cupcake took much less time then the first. They are not something I would mass produce, I will tell you that! hehe This particular cupcake was made for my friends birthday, which is today.

 Happy Birthday Hannah  
I don't think she even looks at my blog, but just in case! hehe 

Thats all for today. Don't forget I have a small blog candy going on until next June 20th. Part of the latest magnolia collection! ;-))  Click here for my  BLOG CANDY

Ohmigosh, Tracy!!! This is absolutely fabulous!!! I thought it was a real cupcake when I first saw it. It looks so real. I want to know how you did this... are there any tutorials on it? And what did you use to make the sprinkles? They look like bugle beads maybe? You did a wonderful job on it.

Hugs,
Anne
