Cupcake Holder

Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! We are just planning on having a truly restful weekend. Nick needs to settle down and rest and make sure that he is completely over his little 'bout' with being sick. Thankfully, Pat nor I have had any hint of it. I did get half of my Christmas cards done last night and I was really happy for that! I haven't sent out cards in three years! Yikes!! I will be surprising my friends and family!! Now to get my crafty gifts done for next week and I will be feeling really good! Still need to get some baking done and of course, the big shopping! We don't dare attempt the mall on the weekends. Too scary!! Pat said we would go the first part of next week so we should wrap it up then. I hope so...

So today's project is one that I got to make when my friend, Kim was in town. It is a little cupcake holder!! I just love this! This is something I would have never made on my own, but Kim (being the clever gal that she is) tweaked ones that she had seen on the Internet and came up with this little cutie! This was my first time sewing and gathering the ribbon like this to make the little medallion thing on top. She let us make two of them and by the second one I got it pretty good! It's really not as hard as you might think.

Kim used the Perfect Settings die for the outside of the cupcake holder. The Rich Razzleberry wide striped ribbon is gathered then hot glued to the 2 1/2" circle punched piece of Rich Razzleberry. Then I gathered the Rich Razzleberry wide grosgrain ribbon and stuck the 5/8" Very Vanilla brad through the middle of that before hot gluing it to the middle of the already stuck down wide striped ribbon. Be careful, as the brad will get very warm!! Then Kim used the Word Window punch to punch out the little "hinge" out of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. Kim also said that the foil cupcake holders work a little better than the regular paper ones. The foil ones seem to hold themselves in the holder better. Cute, huh!! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Kim's blog for more great ideas!
