Fancy Cupcake

I made a Fancy Cupcake today! Sounds yummy huh?  It has a pretty blue cupcake wrapper and it's loaded with flowers on the top of it!  Am I making you hungry for a sweet cupcake?  It really is cute but... unfortunately it can't be eaten because it's made out of paper!  Haha!

Awhile back I watched a video made by Miranda Edney, which you can find HERE, on making these cute cupcakes using Graphic45 papers.  The tutorial is actually at the end of the video because the beginning is her showing the projects she submitted to become a Graphic45 designer.  She did actually get picked to be a designer for Graphic45 and she well deserves it...her projects are amazing!  Check out her blog, she calls herself MsLiberty25, it really is amazing the projects she creates!  When Miranda made her cupcakes she made lots of them and created a really pretty display using a three teared cupcake holder that she also made herself.  This is a direct link to her blog posting...CLICK HERE it really is worth seeing it's so beautiful!

Anyway...I've been wanting to make one of these cupcakes but couldn't seem to find the time, so yesterday I decided to make time and here is my paper cupcake.  I did not use Graphic45 product opting instead to use some left over papers from the Sweet Nothings Collection by Kaisercraft.  It only takes one full 12 x 12 inch sheet of paper for all of the flowers and a 4 x 12 inch piece of contrasting paper for the wrapper.   It turned out so adorable!  The top of the cupcake is removable so I made a set of circle tags to sit inside.  I wanted the tags to kind of stand up instead of lying flat inside of the cupcake wrapper, so I added a cluster of items to one side to the bottom of the wrapper which causes the tags to sit inside at a slant.  When you take off the top you see the tags, then when you remove the tags you can see the cluster at the bottom.  It's very cute...
