I am so glad you could join me! I have never participated in a blog hop so this is a first for me. If you are one of my readers and are wondering what is going on....I believe all of the fun starts here and that there are a ton of talented ladies that are sharing some of the creations they have made today with their Silhouette. I believe you just left the uber talented Jennifer McGuire's blog and now for a little peek at my project!
When Kerri asked me to participate I was excited and knew exactly what I wanted to work on. I have my daughter's birthday and a friends baby shower all coming up at my house, so I needed to do a dry run of what I have planned for the table settings really all I wanted to do was buy cupcakes, photograph them and then eat them and I needed a reason....so here is what I came up with:
I think my favorite part about using my silhouette is that I can use all of my House of 3 backgrounds to get a different look every time. I can change them out for whatever theme I am working on and I can do it all from the comfort of my own home. At first when looking at these little favor boxes I was a little intimidated but after folding the first one I was hooked. They are super easy and so much fun when you mix and match the patterned paper. I love that this one can be filled with candy or can be used as a cupcake stand like I have done with it here. Then the tall favor box will be filled with a blank note card for each guest to write a note to the honoree and then there will be a basket on the table for them to leave their notes. I embellished the front of the boxes with two small tags that I cut on my silhouette and then typed the initial on the tag and tied with a bit of twine and a vintage ticket. I love the vibe of these!
The cupcake picks were two butterflys that I cut out after I printed on both sides of the paper and then hot glued to a toothpick. I then attached a vintage button to the center for a little added dimension. Super fast and super easy...just the way I like all of my projects.
