Sweet Cupcakes!

To me Valentine's Day is all about CUPCAKES! This week at Sweet Sassy Diva Bobbi Jo asked us ladies to make a Birthday or Valentines Party Item. I found the cutest cupcake wrappers on the Sweet Treats cart.

Check Spelling
Sweet Treat Cartridge
Hopscotch Imagine Pattern Cartridge
12x12 White Card Stock
Clear Stickles
Stamp (I used "Be Mine")
Versamark Ink
Brown Glitter

I started by printing and cutting the wrappers at 5.5 inches using patterns from the Imagine hopscotch cartridge. I also cut out 4 hearts at 5 inches from the same cartridges.

I then inked all the edges of my wrapper with Distress Ink "Walnut Stain". And simply folded along the perforated lines. I used my tape gun to fold and hold my wrapper together, it was very easy to figure out.

For my toppers I stamped a "Be Mine" stamp with my Versmark Ink pad, added Stamp-N-Bond and heated it up with my heat tool, then I quickly added brown glitter to make my words sparkle! I brushed off any extra glitter with a fine paint brush once it had dried. Sorry I don't have another close up of the toppers but none of then turned out very clear. Once the hearts were decorated I glued them together with a toothpick in the center.

When you hit shift on any of the cupcake wrappers you are given a decorative cut-out, this is the one that I picked, I then choose a pattern that matched my toothpick toppers. And again for some more sparkle I added stickles to the center of my cut out!

So just drop a cupcake in the wrapper and pop on your topper for this super cute and easy Valentine's Day project!
