Happy Thursday!! About a year or so ago, I had an order for some baby shower favors and thank you cards. I was given free reign to design whatever I thought would be cute - I just had to use the nursery theme - pink and leopard print. The other challenge for me was that these all had to be shipped to Dallas, so I tried to be conscious of shipping charges, and also didn't want to make anything candy or food related for fear that it would melt or get damaged.
So, I came up with the idea to incorporate the "shower" theme by creating these faux cupcakes out of shower puffs! I tried to find a template for the cupcake wrappers, but in the end, just ended up making my own. I handmade each of these wrappers - I think there were about 25 total. It took a long time, but they came out so perfect - AND were a huge hit at the shower!
For the thank you cards, I used my cricut to cut a die of the mommy to be. I lined the back with the leopard print paper, and layered it to pop it off the card. Each card was hand stamped using a stamp from Stampin' Up (I think it may have come from a free hostess set that I got).
I packaged the cupcakes in cello bags, tied with ribbon, and a tag that read, "From Heidi's Shower to Yours".
Cute little set, right?
Till tomorrow - tune in for my Friday I'm In Love favorites! Also - don't forget about my Saturday Social Linky tomorrow night! Please - tell your crafty friends about it!
