Cupcake Wrapper

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I have a cupcake holder and a topper for you! I made these for two challenges, Celebrate the Occasion - Theme is Easter or Spring (must use a punch) and Cricut Cardz Challenge - Easter cupcake holder or wrapper.

I used a strip of 12 X 12 patterned paper for the holder. I scallop punched the top of the strip and ribbon punched the bottom. I then accordion folded the strip matching up the little ribbon punched slits. I wove ribbon in and out of the slits and tied it. I cut a 4" scalloped circle from the patterned paper with the Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge. I glued the accordion folded pice to the scalloped circle piece. I cut a smaller strip of paper for the handle and scallop punched both long sides, then glued it to the wrapper.


For the topper I cut another scalloped circle but this time at 2 1/4" from Accent Essentials. The chick was cut from Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge at 4". I used a pop dot when I attached the wing. For the eyes I used two 1/4" hole punched pieces of white paper with two tiny black plastic eyes. The chick is attached to the scalloped circle with pop dots to give it some more dimension.


Cupcakes are lemon if your interested! LOL


Supplies used: cardstock - 2 shades of yellow, white, orange; patterned paper - so egg-cited and chicken little from Little Chick by Three Bugs In a Rug; ribbon - my stash; ribbon border punch - Martha Stewart; Scalloped border punch - EK Success; black plastic eyes - Michael's; Accent Essentials and Just Because Cards Cricut cartridges; wooden skewer, cupcake (mmmm!)

Thanks to all my peeps for taking a peek!!!
