Gifts for YouTube Meet Up Weekend

25 Jun

This past weekend, a few of my crafty YouTube friends and I decided to get together and meet.  We spent the weekend getting to know each other, shopping, and crafting.  It was great!  I enjoyed it so much!  One of the things we did was bring was a card, a hand made item, and a scrappy gift for each person.  I saw a video from MsLiberty25 on YouTube where she showed a cupcake stand and cupcake boxes she made for her entry for the Graphic 45 design team call.  She included a tutorial and I just had to make one, or in this case four.  I need to make one more for me!

Paper Cupcakes and Cupcake Boxes

Paper Cupcakes and Cupcake Boxes

This was a labor intensive project but it turned out beautifully.  Each of the cupcake tops is made from one inch flowers punched out from an entire 12 x 12 sheet of paper.  They are attached to half of a styrofoam ball with pins from the sewing notions wall.  Here are some individual photos of the cupcakes which are actually boxes (the tops come off)…

I made the Cupcake Box with Lid Template Cutting File from The Cutting Cafe to hold the cupcakes.  Unfortunately, I re-sized the box but the top came out too big as I did not re-size it correctly.  I did not have more paper or more time to re-do the tops so I had to add adhesive to help the tops stay on.  I cut out the top using the circle shaped cutout and I used old packaging to add an acrylic window.  I used circle sentiments on the lid and front from the All About Cupcakes Printable Stamps File also from The Cutting Cafe.

Next I made very quick cards using the Cupcake Printable Stamp Set 1
