Day 17 of the Artiste in August Blog Hop

Welcome to the 17th 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.

Today is another Any Shape Day and for me it is all about cupcakes.

I have used different papers because cupcakes are for everyone.  Don't you agree?  You need manly cupcakes and princessy cupcakes and teenager cupcakes.  And then there is always Christmas cupcakes.

The Cricut Artiste cuts all different kinds and shapes of cupcake holders.  I experimented with them because I was unsure of the fit.  I probably have mine too small but I hated the paper getting full of frosting.  I know, they are cupcake holders.  They are supposed to get full of frosting.

I cut my cupcake holder at 2" but my cupcake almost fell throught.  Then I cut it at 1.75" and that was better.  Then I cut it at 1.65" (I have the Gypsy) and I used the outermost slit to connect the ends, but I think that it was too small.  This is what you are seeing in the pictures.  I would probably go back up to 1.75" if I made more.

And no, I did not make these cupcakes.  Today was my Open House and I was super busy.  These are Wal-Mart cupcakes.  They do taste pretty good.  Thank you Wal-Mart!

Now,you have seen over 2 weeks of projects made with the Cricut Artiste.  I hope you are as excited about it as I am!  Look at all you receive with the CTMH Cricut Artiste Collection.
