It opens up to show the yummy treat inside.  I cannot accept credit for the cupcake.    I actually bought six and this is the only one that my family did not eat before I could take the pictures!  LOL!

Project Instructions:

Other products: Grand Labels Eleven, Pink Card Stock, Memento Inks, Pearls and Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a box 4″ x 4″, 1″ high with a 2″ hold cut out of it to hold the cupcake.  For the front and back pieces I used the Grand Labels Eleven in the size I wanted and scored 1″ at the bottom and used this to attach the front and back to the base.  The sides were made by taking the same shape as the front and back and gently curving them until the top center was 1″ wide.  I cut a little slit as well so the sides stayed closed.   Once you attach all the pieces to the base, cover the base with another layer of paper to hide all the flaps.  I also made a small flap that I attached to the back panel that is folded and used a small magnet hold the purse closed.  Finally, stamp, distress and die cut your favorite flowers.  I used the new Arianna Blooms flowers and I love how they turn out.  Last but not least, place a cupcake into the purse and there you have a lovely little gift for that someone special : )

Thanks again for popping by today, I truly appreciate you taking time out of your day.  Would love you know what you are working on lately?
