paper creation...

It is always fun to dive into the scrap bin of paper and create something your own shaped card or embellishments with little use of a die cutter. Today I am bringing you just that...
To create this cupcake...(1) cut a folded piece of craft paper and cut into cup shape. Stitch three lines in cup front then fold back together stitching up three sides as shown. (2) Hand cut layers of the cupcake...this is where it gets fun. (3) Add lace, ribbon, etc. to each layer and stitch. (4) Adhere layers to each other and cupcake cup front. (5) Make a cute tag to fit inside the pocket. I just love how the little bow peeks out the top.
Here is a second cupcake which was created using the same idea, but really no pattern needed...just be creative!
Finally a tag using a strawberry I hand cut from scrap pieces, used a marker to create the seeds and glittered it up. Topped the tag off with some gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon...which I have decided to start playing with all of the larger ribbon in their shop and WOW is it amazing!

Off to create more tonight and hope to have more posted in my shop by tomorrow or Friday. Have more on my mind to create tonight and can't wait to see how they come out :)
