Cupcake Blog Hop!! Yummy!!

Good morning & welcome to the Cupcake Blog Hop!! Today's hop is all about yummy cupcakes!! Who doesn't love cupcakes?? And in crafting there are SO many possibilities for cuteness!! You should have come from our wonderful & talented host Bernice...but if you are just popping in today from somewhere else, head on back there for the beginning!

As soon as I knew this hop was happening I knew I just HAD to do the cupcake box from the project cart "Sweet Tooth"....I had never done one before but have seen SO many interesting takes on this box! I have seen one done as a pumpkin & one done as an apple!! If you search YouTube, there are tons of ideas!! But here is my version...

I cut my cupcake box at 8 1/2" and just used some misc cardstock & scrapbook paper I had around! I was mainly focusing on the decorating of the box! :) The fun stuff!! I first added some fringe around the cupcake bottom (note to self & anyone else...put fringe and/or ribbon on BEFORE you assemble box!! Ask me how I know...LOL!!) Anyway, then I added some blingy (Is that even a word??? Yes, to us crafty people...yes it is!!) flowers to the bottom and of course no cupcake project (in my mind at least) would be complete without (say it with me....) STICKLES!!!

Then with some of the left over scraps (because we all know it is a GOOD thing to actually USE your scraps!!) I made a little 3x3 giftcard to match! :)

Now for the fun part....BLOG CANDY!!!
Please leave a comment & if you're not already, become a follower and on Sunday the 16th I will pick a winner! You will receive an envelope of goodies!! Embellishments, maybe some ribbon...who knows, maybe even a bottle of Stickles!! :)

Thanks for hopping along today and now head on over to the super talented Dena !!! Hereis the entire lineup in case you get lost along the way....
