Artiste in August - Cupcake Box

Welcome to the 27th day of the Artiste in August Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop and  Pamela O'Connor is the blog in front of mine.  We are a group of Close to My Heart Consultants who are making a different project each day using our brand new Close to My Heart Exclusive Cricut Artiste Collection.  Each day we will be focusing on a different shape or box that you can cut out with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.

Can you believe that we are on the 27th day of our month long blog hop?  I am so grateful to have participated in this hop.  I have had to stretch and use my Cricut Artiste and the new products more than I have ever used our new products in the first month after they are released.  My approach to new products approaches hoarding.  I buy all the new products and then just look at them for about a month.  I open the paper packs and smell them.  I take the stamp sets out of their packages and make a copy of them for my stamp binder.  But that is it.  I never actually use them for the first month.

Not so this time.  I have been forced into my discomfort zone.  I have cut into every one of my new paper packs.  I have had to resticky 7 Cricut mats purely because I have used them so much.  And I have actually order new paper packs.  Man have I been having fun!  And my Mojo is back!

So, take a look at my project for today - the Cricut Artist Cupcake Box.

Isn't this just the most adorable, super gorgeous cupcake box in the entire world?  I know that it is the most gorgeous cupcake box in the Memphis area!  LOL  I made this using the Flirty paper pack.  The more I use it the more I love it!

Can you see the holder for the cupcake inside of the box?  Wow!  They thought of everything.

I placed our pearl opaques in the centers of the big cabbage roses for a bit more oomph.  I just love when I have such a great patterned paper that all I have to do is add a few embellishments and I am done.  Really, what more could I add?

All of my edges are inked with Cocoa ink.  I found my cupcake box on pg 69 of the Artiste Handbook and pg 49 of the Artiste Assembly Guide.  I cut the box at 3.5".  And remember to cut the insert as well to hold your precious cupcake in place.  For the cellophane top I cut a 4.25" piece out of a normal page protector and taped it in place with my ATG gun.  It looks neat and professional once I fold the Cupcake Box's top into place.
