Cupcake Keepsake

By:

Show your friend how much she means to you with this adorable Cupcake Keepsake. This 3D cupcake is adorned with buttons, ribbons and has a cute paper tag that says "Fabulous Friend." It's the perfect gift for a friend.

Cupcake Keepsake

Materials:

  • JustRite's Forever Friends stamp set
  • Brown and green ink
  • Clear embossing powder
  •  Spellbinder's die from the Happy Everything die set
  • Styrofoam ball
  • Glitter
  • Modeling Paste
  • Cupcake liner

Instructions:

  1. The sentiment was stamped in brown Memento ink and cut out with the small narrow Spellbinder's die from the Happy Everything die set.
     
  2. The frame was stamped in a green ink by Color Box and embossed with clear embossing powder.
     
  3. I tied the top of my tag with dyed seam binding and a vintage button. And just so you know, the tag pulls out of the middle of the cupcake!


     
  4. The cupcake holder was cut using my Cricut Expression and the Cindy Loo cartridge. 
     
  5.  I embellished my birds with little feathers, a button and twine. 


     
  6. Now for the instructions for the 3D cupcake. First, you need a styrofoam ball. You need to cut a rectangular hole in the center as wide and as deep as your tag. This takes a bit of patience to cut out the styrofoam, but well worth it in the end! 


     
  7. To cover your cupcake with vanilla "frosting" you will need modeling paste and favorite glitter. Take a popsicle stick or plastic knife and spread your "frosting" like you would real cake frosting. It will dry just the way you apply it. 


     
  8. While the "frosting" is still wet, sprinkle your glitter over it. Stick it in a real cupcake liner to dry. 
     
  9. Once your cupcake is dry enough to handle, hot glue it to a cupcake liner. I do this just so the ball isn't rolling all over the place and it will give you a place to attach your decorative liner to. 
     
  10. I cut my cupcake liner with the Cindy Loo cartridge and Pink Paislee paper. I glued vintage lace to the top and adhered the entire thing to white felt. I did this so my cupcake wrapper is heavier and more substantial to hold my styrofoam ball. 


     
  11. The white felt creates a liner on the inside of the paper. Now you will take your frosted styrofoam ball, with paper liner and glue it to the inside of your decorative cupcake liner. 


     
  12. Here is the project again finished and with the tag pulled out. I did add some pearls and tiny rhinestones for sprinkles!
