Continuing on the party theme, here is the centerpiece that I made to go on top of the cupcake holder! I actually had cupcakes on the two tiers this past summer, but they were all given away and eaten! And of course I used our cupcake wrapper pattern on the Artiste cartridge that says "happy birthday" around the top. I even ran them through my Cuttlebug using our Dot Embossing Folder for even more texture and to continue the "confetti" theme!
Now for the centerpiece, I actually used one of our new take out boxes and modified it to look like the card-in-a-box invitation!
I didn't use the wire handle, and I opened the lid flaps and added paper to them to extend them down the front and sides. For the back I extended it upwards.
You can see that this box has tapered flaps and back to coordinate with the tapered box shape. But it is still enough of a similarity with the colors and shape. It's much larger - it stands about 8" tall
I love the Artiste cupcakes!!! And I especially love the pink glitter paper cherry!
I'll be back with more tomorrow...
