So you're gonna laugh at tonite's sample. I really wanted an Accucut cupcake box to use with the new Stampendous/Eclectic Paperie exclusive "Merry Muffin" set, but since I don't own that die or a cupcake box, I had to improvise. I bought a transparent chinese food gift box from Target a while ago, so I decided to alter it to hold a cupcake. I put a faux bottom in it by cutting a hole in yellow cardstock with a Nestabilities circle die. I thought it would be fun to make a cheap co-worker gift that would hold a chocolate chip muffin, so it could be placed on their desks on the day of their birthday.
I'm not gonna lie...I'm no Betty Crocker. In real life, I would go out to Panera or Starbucks and BUY a chocolate chip muffin to put in the box. But NO, I decide to make weight watchers chocolate cupcakes from a box for my props. Which promptly FELL as soon as I took them out of the oven. Note the beautiful hole in the center of the cupcake. I've been told by trusted sources to never EVER EVER cook for anyone, EVER!
So if you can get past the horrible baking episode, it COULD be a cute gift set in the hands of someone more, shall we say GIFTED in the kitchen department than I am! Happy Wednesday! p.s. QUIT LAUGHING LANA AND HB!
