Flocked Cupcakes are Bound to Make ANYONE Smile!!!

And that is what I decided to do with my banner. Today's post will be short and sweet, as I am not well today and even typing seems to be exhausting. HA!

Cupcake Bunting Banner


I created this bunting by first cutting the scalloped triangles and the triangle inlay pieces on my Cricut. Umm...I love that thing.

I punched the scalloped circles from old book pages and then created the flowers for each pendant. They are sprayed with crimson Glimmer Mist to give them a bit of color and sparkle!

Flocked Cupcakes


I punched the cupcakes with a Martha Stewart Punch, but I believe you could cut something similar with your Cricut if you have that, but not the punch. I flocked the top of the cupcake with turquoise fabulousness (...er....flock) for a fun fuzzy frosting! (Heee!!! Isn't alliteration fun?!) I used a white pen to outline the bottom of the cupcake to give it more definition so it would pop off the background a bit.

Cupcake Bunting Banner Pendant


I added the pink ribbon before adhering the cupcake. The cupcake is adhered with dimensional foam adhesive so there is a lot of depth there. I love it! Finally, I finished off each pendant with some white doodles around the edges and attached them all with a heavy white twine.

Overall, this was really a super fun project to create! And they aren't difficult at all! You can customize it to totally make it your own, too! Let me know what you think!

Also...I wanted to let you guys know that I posted an ebay listing for The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker, in case any of you are interested!

This is one of those projects that I look at and think, "Wow, I wish someone would do that for me!" I mean, really, how awesome would it be to walk in the door and see that banner hanging up over your desk? To think that someone cared for you so much to make that and do that for you? My point is that it's a BEAUTIFUL, cheery little project that a lot of work goes into but would be appreciated so much ... just to brighten someone's day. There's LOVE in this project, J!! :-)

I do not have a circut machine but it is sure tempting to go out and get one....I do love punches and that cupcake one of Martha Stewart's is loads of fun...especially for my grand daughters. Please take care ...I totally appreciate your youthful energies and delightful, contagious smiles :O)!!!!

Oh my these are so great... I just created a "jungle" for J in the living room -- leaves vines flowers and such out of construction paper... it is pretty cool (will post photos in blog at some point) but seeing something of this detail has me inspired to try something even fancier. Next party I'm definitely doing this!!!
