I can't take credit for this amazing idea! While we were at Founders, every participant received a cupcake similar to this on their pillow one night! It was a super sweet surprise and I loved it! I think that Selma made 135 of these...can you imagine? Well, I changed mine up a bit and used the Candy Cane Christmas fabric to make this creation.
Once you get in the groove, these are actually really quick to put together and super fun to give! Cut a length of fabric about 1 1/2 inches wide the length of the fabric (this is the stripe) and a piece 3/4 of an inch (this is the polka dot) HALF the length of the fabric. Simply do a running stitch near the edge of the fabric, the full length. Then, pull the ends and knot (this will gather the ribbon). Repeat with both pieces. Then simply sew the button on the top and have it hold all your fabric together.
The base of the cupcake is made using the Place Setting Die (think that's the right name...the one that looks like a cupcake holder) and the Circles 2 die. The Circle 2 die is for the top of the "box". To hold your special treat inside the cupcake, simply include a cupcake liner and it will stay snug in place.
Hope you like today's tasty treat:)
