Cupcake Birthday Set

It is Saturday! On Monday it is Kevin's Birthday.
Kevin is one of our processors and he shares an office
with me. I made Kevin this set so that he can always
have a cupcake around. He does not eat a lot of sweets
so I thought this would be perfect.

This is the whole set put together. The box is not my
original idea. I got it off of someones blog a while back
and did not think to keep the link because I did not have
a blog back then. I am sorry, I do not have the link.

This is the box with the cupcake on the outside. I
copied the idea out of the SU Success magazine to cover
the cupcake. I used 1" circle punch and straight pins
for the "sprinkles". I did not have any styrofoam balls
laying around so I took batting that you make pillows with
and rolled it into a ball and covered it with material and
tied it off. I glued the whole thing into the cupcake wrapper.

This is the cupcake in the box with the lid opened
so you can see how it fits down in there. The star
is a SU punch and so is the Yum Yum. The inside of
the box has an insert to hold the cupcake in place since
this is meant to hold a real cupcake. The top has an
acetate cover too.

SU Chocolate chip cardstock on the bottom and the
ribbon is also SU Chocolate Chip. The buttons are from
my stash.

Another view of one of the sides. PP is Twinkle
twinkle little boy from My Minds Eye.

Here is the card to match. Cupcake is from
the Sweet Treats cart and the greeting is a SU
stamp. I used the same paper on the card as on
the box so it would match. I hope you enjoy!
