Cupcake crazy!

Today's title really sums me up!!! I LOVE cupcakes, can you tell!! I love everything about them, eating them of course (need to stop as I need to loose weight for Footloose) but I also love how trendy they are at the moment. They are very retro I think and I am obsessed with buying things with them on. Here is a selection of cupcake items I have

Tea towels
Oven Gloves
Bunting (in my conservatoire)
Many mugs
Mirror (my friend Anna got me this)
Cookie Jar x 2 (lovely pressies from peeps!)
Money box
Air freshner
Storage boxes
Tray (pressie from lovely customer
Fridge magnets (birthday pressie)

Gosh the more I sit and think about it the more I realise I have!!! I have probably forgotten loads too!

So the other day I spent a nice afternoon working on some designs for my Cupcake Crazy class on 29th March. I wanted to make a cupcake bag with 4 cards inside and here is my first

I have hand drawn the top of the cupcake and then cut it out to make a template. The whole colour combination is Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose. Although it looks like its a box I wanted it to be more like a sturdy bag hence the ribbon handle

The cupcake casing has been created by concertina folding the Chocolate Chip designer papers and glueing them down (this was the most faffy part of the whole project.

Inside are 4 little 10cm cards, I will also stamped envelopes too but I ran out of time!

And here is the whole project together!

If you would like to come to the class please let me know ASAP. I only have 3 places left as it stands at the moment. The cost is £10 and it is on 20th March in Pudsey nr Leeds!

Back tomorrow!
