Party Decoration- Cupcake place setting cards

My daugther had her party last friday, and mom didn't have 1 battery charged-BOO MOMMY!!

However, we had some of the cards left, and I did finally have a charged battery so-----

This is what we did.

I designed the cupcakes and used my cutter to cut it out. Then, I cut out the bottom of the cupcake liners, and cut them into two pieces. Then glued just the edge and bottom and smudged up the liner so it looked as you see here. Then my daughter used a paint brush and liquid glue and painted with glue where the frosting would go. Then she sprinkled her favorite glitters on. We then picked a font and cut the strips for the name tags. Another idea I had was to punch or cut hearts out and attach to the end of toothpicks and the poke through the cupcake and then have the names on the hearts (just a thought after- my daughter vetoed it)

They aren't perfect, since cupcake liners are curved. I had to work quicker, since she was speedy-LOL

She had a ball, we made hear decorations out of the bend and back clay and paper bead necklaces from the Retro Metro Beadels from Tinkering Ink. I may do a quick tutorial on the hair decorations, easy for kids to do and great inexpensive gifts.

I also finished a layout this weekend, and printing off some photos for future layouts. If I don't submit this layout then I will post it later. I used the new Granola papers & some embellishments from Basic Grey.

Gotta go load more goodies, crate paper just came and I have new albums by Basic Grey to load too!

Pin It!
