Sweet Treats Thursday - Cupcake Theme









Happy Sweet Treats Thursday bloggies!! This week's theme at Cuttlebug Challenge is Cupcakes. Yes you heard me...cupcakes, those small sweet cake confections. My fellow designers for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog have whipped up some great projects to share with you also, so make sure you check out their projects also for some sweet inspiration.

My project is for miniature cupcakes that can be packaged up for that special friend, family member or for even just treating yourself! I also made a cupcake shaped card that fits in an A2 gusset envelope. I do have .cut files available for the CUPCAKE CARD WITH TAG and MINI-CUPCAKE BOXES.

Of course presentation is key so I did use some film to wrap the box up in to keep the cupcake fresh, but not like it will last long enough to need the packaging for freshness.





Here is a close up of the cupcake shaped card. Supplies used:
Cricut
Sweet Treats cartridge
Wild Card cartridge - sentiment on tag only
Cardstock
Patterned paper
white gel pen
Ribbon

The card base is a cut included on Sweet Treats so even if you don't have Design Studio you can still make this super cute card. For the .cut file all mats are labeled and cuts are included.

I made several boxes because they were just so fun to make and decorate! Supplies used:
Cricut
Sweet Treats cartridge
Cuttlebug
Script and Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folders
Cardstock
Patterned cardstock
Flower paper punch
White gel pen
Tulle
Ribbon

If you want to make different mini-cupcake boxes than I have done just make sure they are large enough to hold a 2" cupcake.

  11. The brown paper on the cupcake card is Mica Stardream. I get it from California paper goods. But...Bazzill has some very similiar and you find it at Hobby Lobby sometimes.
