Here is the Cupcake Pin Cushion and Banner that I made for Heidi over on Foxgloves, Fabric, and Folly. What a lovely lady and new friend. We have enjoyed getting to know one another. I am also in her Very Vintage Halloween Swap. The 3rd pic shows how the banner was wrapped in the box I decoupaged, and the 2ND pic is the cupcake pin cushion wrapped. The cupcake pin cushion was made out of felt, and beads, and placed into a plastic cupcake holder. The banner is a demo curtain from Wal-Mart that I used to add the cupcake with Heidi's name on it, beads and buttons with lime green pompom trim. On each tab I had crocheted flowers, they are sewn on with a button on each one. On the bottom corners there are Yo-Yo's with buttons. It also says YUM sewn on with tiny buttons.
Cupcake tags with different size cupcakes on them in her favorite colors: blue, brown, and white.
I also made her some Halloween Tags, some with candles, some without. The rick rack on the Halloween Tags, All Cupcakes, and Tags were cutout on my Cricut. (Hey Paula, I have a Cricut. secret joke. ha ha) There is single cupcakes, cupcakes with candles, and border cupcakes.
I cut the die cut out on my Cricut, and then used chipboard letters for her name, that has stickles on them, then they were added to a envelope. I cut the Cupcake and candle with the Cricut. The One Candle on the card that I made represents that she was my FIRST Swap Partner.
I hope Heidi enjoyed her swap items as much as I enjoyed making them.
