Cuttlebug, PCMB and Sunflowers and Dragonflies challenge


The challenge for this week on the Cuttlebug blog is to make a bag, box or card to go along with your chosen party theme. I decided to make a take-out box that a cupcake could be taken home in, as my theme is "cupcake decorating party". I made up the box (I traced around an old take-out box and cut it out) and then stamped polka dots on it using a pink Dauber Duo. I then stamped a Studio G "cupcakes forever" stamp, edged it with green ink, mounted it on pink cardstock and added some punched flowers to it. For the top of the box I made a tag that acts as a seal to close the box using a green Making Memories tag, a Studio G cupcake stamp, glitter, dimensional gloss and finished it with ribbon.


I made this card for three challenges, for the Cuttlebug challenge, The S and D sweet tooth challenge and I used Tara's sketch for the challenge on the PCMB. My Studio G stamps are really getting a good work out :) I loved this sketch so much that I'm going to try and get a LO done this week with the sketch too! I used the Swiss dots folder for the BG and some really cool pp that I got free with a craft magazine called "Crafts Beautiful" a while back. The ribbon is by Anita's.

Thanks for visiting and have a happy crafting day :)
