Cupcake creations

Hiya all,

I would have loved to be making the trip up to Leeds today for training with Jules and the girls but unfortunately I can't make it today as Hubby has gone to Tottenham to watch Wolves.

I have decided to be very self-indulgent and have my own little crafting day so I have abandoned all the housework ( my excuse is a bad knee and I need to sit down lol ! ) and apart from occasionally feeding the washing machine I have been playing all day.

I'm not sure what Jules and the gang are up to but I'm sure there will be some cupcakes involved so I decided to play with my new cupcake goodies. Whilst browsing the internet I saw somewhere a really cute little box but the cupcake case was made by pleating paper. This looked a bit fiddly for doing in class so I decided to make my own version..........

The top is made with the petal cone die and doesn't the Manhattan Rose embossing folder make fantastic textured frosting ? Colour combination is Melon Mambo , Pretty in Pink and Pool Party. This is a really sweet box and ideal for a small item of jewellery or a chocolate treat.

This is the card to match...........

The punch makes it soo easy to put these together and it is very therapeutic ! Like my real cupcake too ? Baking and crafting in one day- bliss !

Girls, I hope you all had a fab day and I look forward to a bit of blog hopping to see what you've been up to !
