These cupcakes taste terrible!

Saturday, December 27, 2008





Pretty to look at, but not so yummy to eat. Cupcakes made with paper crafting supplies! They're built around a styrofoam ball and chipboard base. Add lots and lots of ribbons, flowers, glitter and hot glue, and you've got a darling cupcake! I'm always intrigued by interactive elements, so these ones have a pull-out and an accordian fold-out, but they'd be cute just as a desk-top decoration too.




To see what inspired all this cupcake craziness, check out Linda's amazing artwork.

If you do a tutorial on these, I have a need to see it! These cupcakes are sensational! I have a nephew who just got engaged and his fiance is his highschool girlfriend so she has been part of the family for a long time. I would like to make one for her as I am making their wedding invitations and their colors are pink and brown. I want to do a pink and brown cupcake with an accordian mini album inside as an engagement gift... I think they want cupcakes for wedding cakes... we'll see. I am so excited. You are amazing woman!!! Can you help us? hugs kathy

Do you dream these awesome ideas up while your sleeping? Maybe that's my problem, I don't get enough sleep to dream. I would love instructions too. I hope you make a video for us... I made your Halloween treat holders, and sent them with my son and daughter to their classes. Their teachers loved them. Love love love your work.

I absolutely LOVE cupcakes and I have had the pattern to make these sitting on my desk for well over a week, now. But WOW! You have really gone the extra mile. I LOVE THESE!! Great work! Love it love it love it! Nona keeps telling me about your retreat, too. I would LOVE more information on it. Are you going to the CTMH Album Retreat? I'm looking forward to it. It'll be my first one. :) I've actually met you one time several years ago. I believe it was in Utah at a convention and you were pushing a baby in a stoller. :) (Quite the memory, huh? lol)
