How i made the cupcake box:
To make the cupcake, i die cut the smallest flower from the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die set out of Birthday Tissue paper.  I hole punched the centers and added a brad.  I hot glued each of the flowers to the top of the Paper Mache Cupcake box.  Next i wrapped the Washi Tape around the bottom of the cupcake.  I then colored my Dandelion stamped images and i basically cut them out. I also made the reverse image for the back of the bear and cupcake so that the cupcake can be viewed from any angle.  Once the images were cut out i ran one of them through the Xyron.  I then put a toothpick in the center of the bear and placed the "unglued" bear on top..then i fussy cut the bear fur.  I poked a hole in the top of the cupcake box and peeled back the bear legs so that the bear would "sit" on the cupcake (front and back).  I added the cupcake to the paw and then placed the unglued cupcake on the "back" side.   I placed the two sentiment hearts on the cupcake frosting one in the front and one in the "back".  I added Stickles to the frosting on the tiny cupcakes and to the center of the sentiment hearts.
Next i used MFT bow die and placed that on the "side" of the cupcake.

 Copics used:
 Bear- E41, 42, 43
 cheeks/ears- R20. 22
 tiny cupcake- E43, R81, 85
 sentiment heart- R81, 83

How i made the White shrink charms/necklace:
I stamped the images (using Stazon black ink) onto the white shrink film (making sure to stamp on the "rough" side of the film, if it doesn't appear rough, than sand it slightly.
  Next i use colored pencils to color my stamped images.  I cut out the images and hole punched them so that i could add a jump ring to make them a charm.  Next i used my heat gun and tweezers to hold the images and followed the instructions on the package..(basically, i just held the images until they shrunk to about half the size..they will curl up and start to lay flat again.)  I added the jump rings and then attached them to the ball an chain necklace.
