February 13th was my Birthday. :) It was a weekend - long celebration of crafting and a party on the day before. I made delicious cupcakes with butterfly's, of course! This cupcake liner was for my special Birthday cupcake. I used a Cricut Cartridge that does over 50 cupcake liners with matching toppers. The one above was made to mimic the tiara I made and wore at CHA. I used Silver Dew Drops,Blue Tear Drops, and Blue Mini-Dews.
Here are the cupcakes I made for everyone else. Same cartridge. For the toppers, I used a Sizzix butterfly die, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and a Swiss dots cuttle bug embossing folder. The cupcakes were lemon with raspberry jam in the center, topped with homemade whipped cream and dusted with powdered sugar. They were delishes! I want to make the recipe one more time before I share it, but I'll be sure to do that soon! :)
For this Tiara that I made and wore at CHA, I ran The Robins Nest Glittered Chipboard through my big shot with the sizzix butterfly dies. I sandwiched heavy gauge galvanized wire inbetween the butterflies with strong tacky glue. I wrapped the tail end of the wire around the base of a blank tiara and then added beads and crystal hearts. I accented the butterflies with glitter glue, silver, white and pink dews andpurple diamonds.
Here I am wearing it at CHA. And rthen I wore it again at my Birthday party. I just love it!
