Happy Birthday Cupcake...

Hi there!  Cherry here today to share with you a sweet little 
birthday pocket using the Hey Cupcake set.   I fell in love with the whimsical 
little cupcakes...and all the sweet little details to them. 

 Here's how I made my project: 

1. Make a pocket from a simple manilla file folder.  I just cut it down to the size
 I wanted and stitched up the sides.

 2. Then add some papers and diecuts to the front and some homemade stitched 
crepe paper. I've been addicted to making it lately. 

3. I then stamped three different cupcakes onto some pattern paper and went to 
work fussy cutting them all out.  I paper pieced them and added some foam adhesive 
to the one for the front of the pocket for dimension.  

4. I added glitter and some vintage tinsel to them as well.  I also decided to add some 
Cotton Candy Jellie Dots for "candy toppings" on the cupcakes.  It was a bit 
time consuming but added some sweet detail. 

 5. I also added little images such as the mini rosebud and the hearts to the top of the pocket. 
This set has some of the most adorable little images!  

6. Finish off the project by topping it off with some yummy May arts texture ribbon from here.  Love it and will have to get more ..and a few buttons and mini roses..and I was done .  

Hope you have enjoyed my project!  Who doesn't like a cupcake?  Thanks for letting me share!
