All About Cupcakes

It's Black Friday All week at Crafter's Companion! We are celebrating with the fantastic new Cupcake Templates.  I just like word "cupcake!"  It warms my heart - I have wonderful memories of baking cupcakes with my mother. The templates make fabulous packages to present your cupcakes in, as well any item. My design today features the Cupcake Templates Collection - Twin Cupcake Presentation Box.  You can put one big cup cake in it.

 Or, two regular size cup cakes fit nicely in the tray.

I followed the easy directions that came with the template, using beautiful Construction cardstock - 12" x 16". I secured the template with EZRelease Tape before tracking it.  

I used The Ultimate Tool to score the dashed lines, folded them up and used the Scoring and Embossing Tool that comes with the tool to burnish down the folds for a nice crisp edge. To create special design paper, I ran the Embossalicious Cakes Galore through my eBosser on Shimmering Cardstock rose pearl. I laid on top of a layer of Shimmering Cardstock black pearl. I used Red Liner tape to adhere the sides of the box.

For the window, I used Die'sire Create-A-Card Dies - Ornate Lattice~Treillage Fleuri on Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock, layered the rose over black and added a layer of the two colors to the inside lid.

Next, I traced the inner cup cake tray onto a piece of the  Construction cardstock. I scored the dashed fold lines and burnished them, as above. For the holes I used the Die'sire Create-A-Card Die Forget Me Not~Myosotis. 

 The flower is cut from Shimmering Cardstock pink pearl using the Die'sire Create-A-Card Die Forget Me Not~Myosotis. I added a little shading to the pedals with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils 034.

To create this cute little fence wrapper, which you can put around a cupcake, I used Die'sire Decorative Dies Picket Fence Cupcake Wrapper. My little happy cupcake was a bit too fat to fit into the fence, however he was quite happy to sit beside it. :)
