Hello. Happy Thursday. I made this cupcake after making a visit to my local stamp store. A gal that comes in there often had brought some projects in that she had done and a similar cupcake was one of her show and tell items. We all loved it and she said she got it from a gals web site, but I didn't get the name. When I got home, I got thinking about it and started playing around and came up with this
little look a like.
I scoured the craft cabinets for supplies. I used a paper mache box minus lid for the base, a four inch Styrofoam ball for the top. I glued orange crepe paper around the ball, the rows very close together. I used a low temp glue gun, working a small area at at a time, gathering as I went along. The card stock that serves as the cup, I just accordion folded in one quarter inches. I traced the bottom of the box and cut a circle a little bit bigger and made slits all around so I could glue it to the bottom and up the edges a bit. I used two 12 inch strips, the width of the box and glued them together before gluing them to the outside of the box.
I inserted a wide empty ribbon spool inside the round box for the decorated ball to rest on, if you got a box and a ball that would sit on top of it, you wouldn't have to do that. I balled up some red crepe paper and used Papier clear liquid and let it dry overnight and glued it to the top for a cherry. I stamped and colored the pumpkin for the front and used twine as a ribbon. When I was all done, I sprayed the entire thing with Sheer Shimmer spray, sparkly.
Turned out cute. Whatever paper she used, was stiff, mine is more fluffy, but I like it.
Hope you had a great Thursday, Thanks for stopping by. Until later.............
