As I was driving home from work tonight, I remembered a project that would be great to use with the cupcake wrapper die!! I saw this project 2 or so years ago and kept it in the back of my mind to use...just never found the time. I even bought all the supplies back then!!! Well, with an a|s die...no more procrastinating. Of course, with the new items JUST (February 1, 2012) being made available, I don't have my grubby little hands on the die. But....I did have some leftover wrappers from an Acucut die that we had at the A Muse shop. So, this project was not made with the new a|s cupcake wrapper die, but thought I would give it a shot and do a "practice" one since I had all the other supplies on hand.
Here is the new a|s cupcake wrapper die:
The dies have a pinking edge. You get a set of 2 dies. Visit my webstore (under Tools; Dies) for more information.
I know that we just got over Christmas, but this project is a Christmas project. Knowing me, I probably need to get started now if I want these ready for Christmas 2012!! LOL!!!
Cupcake Christmas Tree Ornament
I went from memory of what I saw 2 years ago. If I find the link of the original blog, I will update this post.
The wrapper is cut on the Onyx Shimmer Damask. The cupcake part is a styrofoam ball. I applied glue to the top of the ball and sprinkled it with a|s Silver Glitter (might need to try it with flock too). The cherry is a pompom that I colored with Copic Lipstick Red. I used a glue gun to attach the a|s Organdy Cherry Ribbon to the cherry and then adhere it to the top of the cupcake. I used the glue gun to adhere the cupcake (styrofoam ball) in the wrapper.
I love cupcakes!!! I would love to have a tree full of these ornaments. I'm thinking....cupcakes covered in glitter, flock, ribbon, buttons........
My craft desk is a mess, so I better go clean up before the cats get any more glitter on them....BWHAHAHAHA!!!
