Digital Delights, Sweet Treats Calorie Free!

Hi All!  What a great treat i have for you.  It looks Yummy, but it's totally calorie free!    I don't know if you've noticed the Digital Delights monthly cupcakes..so far there are 5 special cupcakes made and if you check the previous posts at their blog you can see what the Design team has done using them.  I hope you are collecting the cupcakes like i am???

Go here to see all of the cupcakes at Digital Delights!

The cupcake for May is "school" themed.  I thought i'd go with that idea and make some teacher gifts.  It is a perfect time to make these as school is coming to a close.

Here is my project using the May Cupcake image:

Here is what i did:
I purchased a paper mache cupcake box...it actually opens up and you can fill it with whatever..treats or paperclips.  The other item is a notepad purchased in the $1 bin at Michaels..i just recovered the cover treating it like it was a card.  I also added the little paper clip bookmark at the top, so it can be used when writing in the journal.  As you can see the image is on the journal and i fussy cut it out.  Then for the paper mache cupcake, i enlarged the May cupcake image and cropped just the worm and apple to put on the cupcake.  I broke some yellow pencils in half and sharpened them and poked them into the top..added some apple buttons.  Before i added the embellishments, i added pleated paper to the base and ribbon and hot glued it in place..then i hot glued the white flowers on to look like the frosting.

Thanks for taking a peek, now i hope you will go out and create something too using this image or any of the cupcake images...please make sure you share them with us..we'd love to see what you are doing!!!
