Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend. Now all the decorating is finished I was able to spend a bit of time today in my newly decorated and organised crafty space (see post below for pictures). Managed to get a DT card done and some preparation work on some Mothers Day cards.
My share for today is a project I have been working on whilst doing the decorating. My two lovely daughters are hosting a baby shower here tomorrow for their best friend. She is expecting a little girl in March. They asked me if I could make some cupcake boxes as they wanted to make some cupcakes and give them as favours when the guests were leaving. Here is the result.
I started out by making a basic box and lid using my Ultimate Pro embossing board from Crafters Companion. I then cut squares of pink coredinations, inked the edges slightly and adhered these to the sides of the box. The little image is from Pink Gem designs and was just perfect for the front of the box.
For the lid I cut an opening in the top using one of my dies. Acetate was then attached to make a window. Some pink ribbon around the lid, some gems and pearls and the box was finished.
I made a cupcake holder insert for the bottom of each box to stop the cupcake moving around.
Once the first one was done I showed my girls and asked what they thought. They were really pleased with the result and promptly asked me to make 20 of them!!!
This afternoon they made the cupcakes to go in them and I couldn't post the box without showing the cupcakes.
They are lovely and sparkly as they added some edible glitter to the top. They also taste good as they did make a few extras which we ate with a coffee after tea.
