A Task Day for May

This is the simple fun project we made at our last Paper Cupcakes team meeting.  Inside are 30 simple 5 minute tasks for each day of the month to help build your business.  You can alter this idea for tasks for your children, inspirational quotes, etc.  Made with our Chantilly papers!

Paper Cupcakes Close To My Heart (CTMH) Blog Hop~featuring the ARTITE Cricut Cartridge & the Happy Mother's Day Key!

Welcome to another Paper Cupcakes Blog Hop!  Today we are featuring the “Mother's Day” key of the Cricut ARTISTE collection.

Since my CTMH team is called the "Paper Cupcakes" and since I love giving goodies, here is my little Mason Jar gone Cupcake rendition!  Paint the lid of your jar and let dry.  Cut a 2" styrofoam ball in half and glue to the top.  Glue/pin our Colonial White Rosette Ribbon to the top for your icing!  I added a tiny red christmas ornament from my stash for the cherry.  Cut your Cupcake wrapper at 2".  I used our lovely Chantilly paper and zip strip!  Add your greeting on a plant stake and secure.  Fill the jar with treats and gifts!.  

Who doesn't love a little {jewelry} & chocolate?

I hope this has inspired you to play!  Make a dozen and have them on hand for any occasion!

There is still time to get in on our Stamp of the Month special! Only available for April 2013!
$5 with your qualifying order!
