My Time Made Easy January Release Party - Something Sweet!

 Hello friends!!  Today the My Time Made Easy teamies and I have a whole bunch of {sweet treat} projects to share with you all!  Sit back, relax and ENJOY :)

Introducing ... HEY CUPCAKE!

Two of my all-time favorite things are tea parties and CUPCAKES!!  The Hey Cupcake template is a perfectly wonderful box that will hold two {sweet} cupcakes when assembled -- just too FUN!!  This template is a breeze to assemble as the bottom is a simple box, but then the magic happens when you cut out the top with it's adorable peek-a-boo windows and the cupcake insert that slides inside to hold the yummy cargo in place!

I whipped up a batch of butter pecan cupcakes with cream cheese frosting to include inside my Hey Cupcake box and then sprinkled them generously with some yummy pink cupcake sugar!  The pink polka dotted paper is from the Darling Dots collection and I used it to cut the decorative layer that fits right on top of the template box top.  I added a row of white pom-pom trim and then tied my box closed with some 5/8" wide grosgrain ribbon ... and then adhered a pretty hot pink bloom to finish it off!

See how perfectly the cupcakes sit inside the box when opened ... LOVE it!!!

I decided to make this an oh-so-pretty in pink birthday set, so I designed a matching card for the gift!  I stamped onto a label cut out using the Occasional Label cut file with one of the label images from the Occasional Labels acrylic stamp set in Melon Mambo and then added the sentiment using the Sentimental Occasions acrylic stamp set in Green Galore.

The addition of a couple of glittered hearts, a paper doilie, a hot pink bloom with white leaves and a bit more grosgrain ribbon and Darling Dots polka dotted paper complete the design!

And there you have it ... a sweet treat gift set suitable for any gift-giving occasion.  Perfect for birthdays, Valentine's Day, teacher and administrative assistant's gifts, anniversaries, thank yous ... and so much more!
