Soft Poofy Cupcake! : )
When I saw the shaped cupcake card by Cutting Cafe', I had this idea to make the top of the cupcake soft and "poofy." (Yes, that is the technical word for it!) I have all these beautiful pieces of felt from Papertrey ink and decided on Hibiscus. I printed off the top of the cupcake on printer paper, cut it out, and pinned in to the felt and cut two pieces out with good fabric scissors. I chose the blanket stitch in white thread. When I was almost done stitching it up I shoved cotton balls in side to give it its "poof." Then I finished with my stitching. I adhered it to the top of the "paper" cupcake using tacky glue. I added a Jennin Bowlin heart, silk ribbon, crocheted flower, and a candle to the top of my candle. Seed beads were added as well. The Designer paper is by Cosmo Cricket, deLovely line. That was also hand stitched using a straight stitch.
