Cupcake BoxAdded by My Project Ideas Category : Papercrafting&gifts Difficulty : In a Snap (Easy)
This is a cupcake box that I made for my friend Gina who had a birthday while I was away on vacation. Gina likes bright colors so I thought the new Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper would be just perfect for her. I used three of the new In-Colors – Melon Mambo (the pink color), Crushed Curry (the yellow color), and Rich Razzleberry (the purple color). The stamp set is the Great Friend stamp set – one of my favorites as you can tell because I am using it a lot. It debuted in the Occasions mini catalog. The butterfly is done with the Rock ‘n’ Roll technique because I wanted it to kind of look like the paper which has the Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry colors blending together.
To do the Rock ‘n Roll technique follow these easy steps:
1. Choose two colors of ink that will work together – one lighter than the other. In this case mine are Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry – where Melon Mambo is the lighter color.
2. Tap your solid image stamp into the light-colored ink – Melon Mambo.
3. Press the edges of the stamp in a rolling motion on the darker ink pad – Rich Razzleberry, being careful not to ink the center of the stamp.
This gives the lighter Melon Mambo color in the center of the butterfly and the Rich Razzleberry around the edges. I cut out the butterfly and added cross-stitch thread to the center to create a body and antenna for the butterfly. The tag is made using one of the large sized metal edge tags. The 1-3/4¿ circle punch is the perfect circle to fit on the tag – I used Crushed Curry and stamped “for you” in Rich Razzleberry ink. The butterfly is attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a 3-D effect.
