Hi everyone, Kimi here. Today I wanted to share with you all my "Sweet" little banner and cupcake gift box.  These gorgeous papers from Kaisercrafts Tea Party Collection certainly put you in the party mood. The banner could be used for a little girls party or just a super cute room decoration.

To make this I have just used some of my scallop edged scissors to cut all the White card stock bases.  I have inked these edges in some cotton candy pink ink from my stash.  I then layered them up with the following papers with the 12x12 sheets that came in my kit.

I created the rosettes from some pink cardstock.  I cut strips 3/4" wide by 12" long and then scored them at every 1/4".  
 I then did the same thing to some White Cardstock.  
Once I had scored all my strips I glued the ends together and began to make all my rosettes   

 Whilst I waited for my glue to dry I punched out some 1" circles and using the alpha stickers from the sticker sheet I spelled out the word sweet.
 I then adhered these to my rosettes with my hot glue gun.
   Using some contrasting ribbons from my stash I strung my banner pieces together.

 My second part of this weeks project is a Cupcake gift box.  When I first saw these papers I thought straight away how cool the would look as an actual cupcake gift box.  To create this box I used my electronic cutter along with an digital cutting file and some of the leftover pieces from the banner. I edged the cupcake lid with ribbons and lace from stash.  I was going for that icing over the cupcake wrapper look!!

 I have added some "sprinkles" - no cupcake is complete without sprinkles right?  So using the cute little sequins that were in my kit I "sprinkled" them about on the lid of my gift box, using glossy accents to adhere them.  But, to me, the cupcake still needed something a little extra...

 .....Sooooooo I added some seam binding bows, a Spellbinders Doily and some Prima Mini Sachet Roses. Kinda like a cherry on top!! 

What little girl wouldn't love a cupcake gift box?  Sooooo scrumptious!! 

Well everybody I hope you have enjoyed my projects for this week!!  I had great fun making them.  
Have wonderful weekend and I will see you all next week

  1. Hello Kimi
    Fabulous Banner, gosh you made it hard on yourself making those Rosettes, obviously you haven't got the TH Rosette die....(hint hint Bev), me neither ha. I made a Christmas banner last year and I was pleased with the result as I am sure you are with this one. The Cup Cake Box is also a fabulous make; unique and special in my book.
