"Create a Cupcake" Purse

Yes... these purses are made from cupcakes!  

Okay, not real cupcakes... but they are made using the Cupcake Builder Punch #121807 ($16.95).

How to make the purse:

How did I make these cute little cupcakes?  I simply stamped and punched out the bottom portion of a cupcake.  Then I flipped it over and added a "tab" and a handle.  Super technical, I know!  

To make the "handle" I punched a 3/4 circle from paper.  I set it aside (you will use later).  

I then punched around the smaller hole. 
This makes a larger circle with a smaller circle cut out in the center.

I then cut that "special circle" in half and attached it to the back of the purse.  
Remember the small circle? Cut that in half and attach to the "purse" to act as the "flap". 

Special Fold:

You may also notice that the "fold" of the card comes from the Raspberry Ripple, not the Night of Navy.  Well, I cut the NoN 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and then cut the NoN 5 1/4 x 8 (and then folded in half).

Supplies used:

Raspberry Ripple and Night of Navy card stock and ink
Create a Cupcake and Bring on the Cake Stamp Sets
Silver Sparkle DSP
Argyle Embossing Folder
3/4" and 1" Circle Punches
Word Window and Modern Label Punches

Happy Birthday to my amazing boyfriend Marc!!  And... Happy Adoption Day (2 years ago) to my sweet doggy Arnie!  The two loves of my life celebrating on the same day!
