Have you ever started, what you think will be a ‘quick-little-project’ , only to be saying half way thru, “what have I gotten into” ? Well sensible crafters, meet ‘The Paper Cupcake’ 😀
I started this ‘ little project’ last week in anticipation of Boomdeeadda reaching 200 Followers. Que the fireworks!
Mr B even took me out for supper to celebrate. I got this funny fortune in a cookie and we laughed and laughed because……well really, I’m a pampered retired princess, LOL.
One week and
millions lot’s of hand-made paper roses later, it all makes more sense. By the way, have you ever had white glue dry in your hair? Ya, I must have unknowingly leaned into it on my craft table and then blissfully went to off to bed. The next morning I was like, “why can’t I brush my hair?” 😀
The cupcake bottom is a die cut as are all the many mini roses. It was a pretty easy, all be it, mind numbing project. I used half of a styrofoam ball for the top. I’m overjoyed with how it turned out, all iced in white roses. The pretty pink doily and butterflies are also die cuts.
Kidding aside, thank you everyone for your amazing support and generous messages along the way and for sharing your art, crafts, travels and wisdom with me too.
I’m having the best time, thank you for helping me reach this milestone. You really make me shine!
This ‘one-of-a-kind, never to be done again’ confection of loveliness is off to one of my ‘Craft It Forward’ friends. Enjoy! Who knew blogging would be so delicious and yet, calorie free!
