Talking November 2011 Project of the Month



Jen del Muro (genie1314) brings cute to a whole new level with her Cutie Cupcake Stand.

And it's not for just birthdays, either. Change out the sentiment and it could be for weddings or a placecard at Thanksgiving topped with a little pumpkin and stamped with a lucky someone's name.


Check it out here. Or download more detailed PDF instructions here. It's the Project of the Month.

Here's What You’ll Need:

Simply Said Stamp Set (K-1723 CL)
Easy Rosettes CutUps Die
Sunflower Rosette CutUps Die
Circus Border CutUps Die
• 3—Dixie Cups
• 5.5” piece of ribbon
• White & Pattern Papers
• Felt
• Rhinestones
• Circle Dies (3.25”, 3”, 2.75”)
• Black Ink
• Adhesive

Here's How To Make It

Cutie Cupcake Stand
  1. Create template by cutting one of the Dixie cups from lip to base and discarding bottom of cup.
  2. Using the template, trace and cut 2 from pattern paper. (Note: Pay special attention when using patterned paper since one cup will be right side up and one will be upside down).
  3. Cover both Dixie Cups,
  4. trimming as needed.
  5. Stack and adhere cups.
  6. Wrap ribbon around seam and adhere.

Rosette Embellishment
  1. Using the Easy Rosettes
  2. CutUps die, cut 2 large rosettes from pattern paper. Clip, fold and adhere into large rosette.
  3. Using the Sunflower Rosette CutUps die, cut 2 from felt. Clip, fold and adhere into sunflower rosette.
  4. Adhere atop large rosette.
  5. Cut and adhere circle from Easy Rosettes CutUps die set.
  6. Cut banner from Easy Rosettes CutUps die set, stamp with “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” sentiment from
  7. Simply Said stamp set and adorn with rhinestones on each side of sentiment.
  8. Adhere embellishment to Cutie Cupcake Stand.

Top of Cutie Cupcake Stand
  1. Using 3 circle dies, cut one of each size. Layer and adhere together.
  2. Using the Circus Border CutUps die, cut 2 lengths measuring 7/8” wide.
  3. Score Circus border length ¼” in from straight side. Create tabs by clipping every ¼” from straight edge to score line (This will make it easier for the paper to wrap around in a circle).
  4. Place adhesive on each of the tabs and adhere to underside of layered circles, slightly overlapping the 2 lengths.
  5. Attach rhinestones to Circus Border “drops” and top with a cupcake!

Oh my yummy!! This is so great!! Nice clear instructions make this totally doable Jen - great project!

I think cupcakes are so much easier to make especially for frosting challenged folks like me! These would take a lot of pressure off - so cute with no fancy cake decorating needed!!
