Tuesday Morning Sketches #68

Good Morning!  I am so excited about this week's challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It's a really really fun one.  For those who really know me, know that I absolutely love challenge shows on the Food Network.  One of my favorite is Cupcake Wars, so while watching one day, I decided we needed to have a cupcake war on TMS.  So this week's challenge is all about cupcakes.  Whether you want to bake and decorate up some packaging or make cards - the sky is the limit.  You just have to feature cupcakes.

So I created a box.  I tried following the directions I found on the Scor-Pal website, but they didn't make sense to me so I improvised and came up with my own.

I also baked red velvet cupcakes and topped them with cream cheese icing.  I was going to wrap ribbon around the cupcake but I got so excited to take pictures that it wasn't until after I had cropped the photos that I realized I forgot that ribbon detail.

I kept the box pretty simple and I topped it with these gorgeous velveteen flowers my friend Jackie gave me.  They looked so pretty that I felt it was enough.... except for the ribbon that I wanted around the cupcake.  :0)

I hope you enjoyed my project and that you join us this week.  Have a great Tuesday!

Beautiful gift box for a very yummy treat -- the red velvet cupcake is making me hungry just looking at it! Wonderful result with the improvising on the box; the acetate window is the perfect way to display this treat!!
