Cupcake Surprise! SWEET STUFF!!

 
A very happy day to everyone!! I hope your week is going along without a hitch and you are able to accomplish everything on your list of Things To Do!! Gosh, when I have ventured out into the world, it seems that everyone is in a RUSH and I just can't be rushed!!! So I guess I will be hiding out until after the holidays...hahahah
 
I was sitting around looking for something to play with and I remembered some little papier mache cupcake boxes that I have had forever and decided to have a play with some of them. If I remember correctly they are from Michaels or Joanns and cost so very little...less than $1 each, I think. They measure about 3 1/2" (8.5 cm) tall so that will give you an idea of how small they are.  But I needed several small presentation boxes for gift cards and small gifts that I thought this would be something QUICK and EASY and I was right! Here's what these little boxes look like at the beginning...
 
The first thing I did was to cover them with a couple of coats of acrylic paint--I wanted the bottoms to look like chocolate and I wanted to make the toppings in pink. I have only finished the first one but I really do have a couple of ideas for the next two....wink!
 
Then I just started gluing Pink Cottage Roses all over the top of the cupcake and where there were gaps I added some pink acrylic flowers with some sparkly rhinestone centers, I finished the top with a couple of fluffy bows made from Vintage Seam Binding, a couple of tiny Maya Road heart pins, and a Prima teacup pin. Around the upper edge of the chocolate bottom I added some pre-gathered lace with some Pearl Drop Trim. See how quick and easy this was!!!! I will put the little surprises in a wee organza bag for the inside and all finished!! I think these would make the sweetest favors for a ladies' get-together or placed on a tiered cupcake server. What do you think??
 
 
SWEET STUFF!!
 
Martha Stewart Crafts Eyelet Lace Punch
 
Seeing that pre-gathered lace on the cupcake I was reminded that I have an EXTRA Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Set of Eyelet Lace that I would love to send to one of my FOLLOWERS!!!  If I will be shipping outside the US, I will remove all of the packaging so that the shipping will not be so very much. All you have to do is leave a comment here before Friday morning, December 14 at 8 AM EST  to be in for the draw. Good Luck!
 
Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again very soon!! Until then, slow down and enjoy each of your moments!! Big hugs!!

I love it! It would make a great party favor for a Ladies' luncheon, or a Mother-Daughter banquet, or even for an in-home demonstration (like Tupperware, Scentsy ...etc.). I'm going to have to try to find these now.

Oi Jacque!!!

que bela ideia de presente. Amei!!! Obrigada por compartilhar conosco esses SOCOS (furador) maravilhoso.

Beijos e tenha uma semana abençoada e iluminada

Traci S. said...

That cup cake idea is wonderful! I love the little cottage roses. It looks as if you must have used 100 of them! I think they would be amazing party gifts for people who come to a wedding shower. You could make the cup cake match the wedding colors!

Please include me in your very generous give-away. I love MS items, but only have some teeny pearls and one punch. Thanks so much!

He IS Able!
