I first made sock cupcakes almost a year ago...and I posted some of my first sock cupcakes in an earlier post back in February. Well, I've been at it again! This time I made them for Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge this week: "Gifts Galore": Create a handmade gift or gift package! This has to be one of my most favorite gifts to give...and I made this one in Chrismas colors, just in time for the holiday!!!
For the cupcake wrapper, I have a Design Studio file graciously shared by Rach1Fun from the Cricut Messageboard. You can find her blog HERE. It uses the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and cuts this lovely scallop-edge wrapper! The socks are from the Michael's Dollar Spot and the cherries (which look almost black in the photo, but are really a dark red) are from Target.
To turn this cutie into a gift, I placed it in a cello bag, tied a red ribbon around it, and stamped a sentiment (CTMH) on a circle cut with George and attached to a circle tag to embellish.
Hope you'll hop over to FCCB and enter your own handmade gift/gift package for your chance to win this week's prize!
Just want to mention that I draw inspiration from others, and you are welcome to use any of my original ideas for your personal use as well... I just ask that you give credit where credit is due and that you don't copy or re-create any of the artwork posted on here for submissions to contests, publications or for profit. Please provide a link to this blog for any projects/ideas inspired by my personal designs. THANKS!!! :)
