Add-on Week, Part 2

Another great use for this sketch is to use it on a layout. This cupcake sketch was just what I needed to embellish a page about my new found love for making mini-cupcakes.

Add-on Sketch #3

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the add-on sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.

"My Mini Cupcake Obsession" by Allison Davis
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Alphabets: Making Memories (my) and American Crafts (mini, cupcake, obsession); Stickers: My Mind's Eye and Jolee's; Chipboard (banner): My Mind's Eye; Border punch: Fiskars; Journaling piece: Making Memories; Embroidery floss: DMC

I followed all the measurements on the sketch to create my cupcake. I used the same patterned paper for each circle and added hand stitching to the "wrapper". Instead of using a cherry on the top I decided to add little sprinkles to mine to somewhat mimic the cupcakes in the pictures.

A super easy way to make sprinkles: cut a 1/4" strip of a stripe and then cut each individual color for the sprinkles.
