Bren's Paper Cupcake using CTMH's "Art Philosophy" Cricut cartridge
Here is the cute cupcake box I designed with my "Art Philosophy" Cricut cartridge for my Close To My Heart LeaderShare here in San Diego.
Cut 3 Pillow boxes at 4". Attach all three together and score one side 3/4 of an inch and cut off the other side 3/4" in.
Score across every 1/2" then snip the edge 3/4" in where you scored to create the bottom. Attach the whole thing together to form a circle. Cut a doilie piece at 4 1/2" from White Daisy CS using your Cricut!
Then add liquid glass (or hot glue or tacky glue)and hold into a circle as it dries. I sanded the score lines.
Then cut a 10" Petal box from your Cricut. I used Roxie Papers!
Score and cut apart the petals and add strong adhesive and attach to the insides of your cupcake base.
For the topper, I used our new foundry pin clips. I bent one at a 45 angle, I layered 1 1/2" Cricut flowers, a button and the two 1/2" Cricut circles glued to both sides of the pin to make the cherry (Glitter optional). Insert into the slits at the top like the picture in the beginning of this post!
