Papers N Pixels---Last meeting until Fall

Oh! WOWZERS!  Papers N Pixels President Clareene and I are so busy getting ready to help our group make cupcakes for our last meeting on May 17th. Yes CUPCAKES!   We are having more fun than any two crafters can imagine making these cute little cupcake treat boxes.  NO two EVER turn out the same but every one is absolutely yelling to be completed to show of itself, no matter HOW labor intensive and compelling they become!  Here's a link to some I've made before just sharing how fun this project is  through the years  

My favorite of all time though is the Breast Cancer one I created for my friend Judy A  in 2014 (who is now doing GREAT!)  This one is pinned with pink ribbon pins through the flowers and has a butterfly (of hope) on top.


Here is Clareene's for our upcoming Workshop.  She has burnished the edge of every single flower petal, which gives the flowers a totally different look.  These take at least three hours to make, not incuding punching a hundred (or so) flowers, and inking them.  Isn't that the cutest pedestal she's displaying her cupcake on?

 Mine for our Group is made with white diamond glimmer paper, burnished in the centers with pink ink and topped with a butter yellow stamen.  The Cupcake wrapper is an organza and lace, pink threaded embellishment over a pink paper cup base.  (They are all on paper cup bases--just some with accordion fold paper that make them look more like cupcakes.)

Can't get enough of these?   See HERE


  1. Oh my goodness! This is all just too much fun! I love the way you decorated the base. It's definitely Party Time...

  2. CUTE! These are fun to make and you will have a ball at the last seasonal meeting. Sure wish I could be there.
