It’s that time of year again. Not just back to school but time for birthday parties and sleepovers. All those fun things 10 year old girls like to do! My youngest daughter will have her 10th birthday soon and wants to have a sleepover. She just loves cupcakes and butterflies, so I set out to try to make something that included both of her favorite things.
The supplies I used are:
- The August Grab Bag – by Kelleigh Raztlaff Designs – which includes cupcake shaped cards, fat envelopes in two sizes to fit your extra-embellished cards, and a top-heavy pillow box template in two sizes
- Patterned paper – I used a 6×6 paper pad by Cosmo Cricket called Togetherness
- manual die cutting machine with dies – I used a border die, circles, eyelet circles and butterflies
- large eyelets and eyelet setter
- lace and twine
- glue dots, heavy-duty adhesive
- printer, cardstock & scissors
The first thing I did was print the cupcake template out onto some Kraft cardstock. After cutting them out, I assembled them by adding patterned paper for the cupcake icing and for the bottom. I added some die cut butterflies and a lacey flower I made adding a brad in the middle. I printed all the birthday party information onto some white cardstock and cut it out and layered it inside the cupcake card. I positioned my lacey flower so that it acted as a closure for my cupcake card.
I printed the Rectangle Fat Envelope templates onto kraft cardstock and cut them out. After scoring, I added a liner inside the envelope and some brads on the outside so that I could tie it together with a piece of lace. My cupcake card fits perfectly inside this envelope without any problems!
I printed the Top Heavy Pillow Box template onto Kraft cardstock and cut it out. After assembling, I added some patterned paper, lace and a tag. The tag says “Thanks” because we are putting in some little trinkets for the girls to take home as a thank you for coming to the birthday party! I think my daughter will have a great time at this birthday party. We are making cupcakes and going to decorate them in the same colors as this ensemble. We enjoyed making these projects together. Hope you will give them a try!
