It’s another day of counting down to My Favorite Things’ July release. Holy smokes! I can’t believe I’m here. :)
So I’m excited to share with you something non-card like that I made with MFT’s new Cupcake Stand Die-namics (available July 8th).
Kinda fun, right?
So I made the cupcake stand with the dies. And get this?! I totally used plain old cardstock. Yep. No chipboard. Nothing fancy. Just plain old cardstock.
Because of the way the dies are designed, they are able to hold up quite a bit of cupcake weight.
To make my stand extra fancy, I cut two tops and stacked them together. I kinda love that layered look that comes by mixing together the white and black cardstock.
When you die-cut the stand’s top plate, you’ll see it scored the the little lines so those flaps folder over nice and easy. That really helped to make this come together quickly. I also added a few pearls to it make it just a bit more girlie girl’ish.
Now, let’s talk about my cupcake. I sauced that baby up with the help of some other products from MFT.
I made a couple flags used my beloved Pierced Fishtail STAX Die-namics and wrapped them around toothpicks. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the new Birthday Wishes stamp set, which is part of the July release.
And the star is from the Blueprints 16 Die-namics dies. I poked two holes through it and the slid the toothpick through it. Then I adhered a white pearl right in the middle of it.
Be sure to check the MFT Blog to see what all the other MFT designers are sharing today.
