Cupcakes Anyone?


In response to recent postings on the Cricut message board, I decided to spend some time this week attempting to create a lacey cupcake wrapper. My inspiration came from a photo posted on the mb from a wedding site. Most mb-ers agreed that it would take SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) to recreate the cut file. I think they forgot about STORYBOOK! The storybook cartridge is a treasure of pretty shapes. I used one of those shapes to create my cupcake wrapper.

NOTE TO USERS - I made this a little long on purpose. Sometimes we make tall cupcakes, sometimes not. Due to the repeat of the pattern, hand trimming is a breeze!! You may see the pink strip in the lower front of the photo that I trimmed. I wanted to show how easy custom sizing could be.

So Cute! I actually suggested to Cricut in Jan of 08 that they needed to do a cartridge for cupcake wrappers. Someone emailed me back saying that they liked the idea. I thought it would be a great idea since cupcakes are so popular! Are you sharing your file? If so I would love to have it.

For those who are interested in the cutfile, a link to the cut file is in the left column under Free Downloadable Cut Files. Just click the link and you will be taken to Mediafire where you may download and save the cut file.

Of course, you know I love your cupcake wrapper. Now I have another challenge for you if you choose to accept it. I was noticing the lace around your blog. Do you think you could be a border cut file similar to the lace? I think it would be absolutely beautiful. I love feminine things, and it certainly is all that. delipa@hotmail.com
