This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is called "National Bake & Decorate Month": create a project that has something to do with baking...and if we have the Cricut Cake, we can use that to create something tasty as well. Well, I don't have the Cricut Cake. :( But that didn't stop me from whipping up something tasty!!!
I made some chocolate chip cupcakes and decided to dress them up a bit in honor of this week's challenge. I have to brag a little on the super-cute graphics...because I didn't make them!!! My friend Tommie, from OhMyGluestick! designs graphics that you can use for party decorations, including these little "party circles" which I used as cupcake toppers. This set of four designs is from the "Alice In Wonderland" set (which was one of the featured free sets a while back!) and features the ace, spade, heart and club. How fun would these be for a card game get-together or royal-themed party??? OMG! has an Etsy shop with TONS of graphics for party decor, and she does custom designs as well. Go check her out!
Okay, to complete my cupcake toppers, I punched each image using a 1 1/2" circle punch. Then I used my Cricut to cut a 1 3/4" circle (George & Basic Shapes) to mat the image and a 2" scallop circle (Storybook) to mat the circle. I added stickles to the dot borders on each image to give them some sparkle and added a rhinestone in the center of each. To finish, I attached them to lollipop sticks and tied coordinating ribbon around the sticks. Super-easy and super-quick, and I think they're pretty stinkin' cute!
Hope you'll visit both OMG! (for fabulous party decor ideas) and Fantabulous Cricut to enter your own "Bake & Decorate" project.
Have a creative (and yummy) day!!! :)
