Happy Birthday, my dearest!

Yesterday was Kelvin's birthday. I made him a special birthday cupcake 'cake'. I got the idea when he forwarded me a few cupcake blogs after he saw the ones I made for Brian. There are many talented artists out there making cupcake toppers for sale in the Etsy stores, so I got the idea to make my own cupcake toppers....

I got some great help from the kids! I used the Sizzix Round-a-Bout alpha set to make the words "Happy Birthday". I used the Cuttlebug camera die to make the two tiny cameras.

A special cupcake for my favourite photographer.
I'm glad he really really likes it:

Happy Birthday, Brian!

It was Brian's birthday last week. I baked him some cupcakes and also made a cupcake giftcard holder for him.

I've seen these cupcake gift holders before, and found the instructions from Tresa's Fabulously Artsy Blog at:

It is surely a fabulous blog! Just follow her step by step instructions at:

For my version, I found these fabulous blingy sequin ribbons on sale at Michael's. I cut the sequins loose and glued them with glue dots onto the styrofoma ball.

For the cherry topper, I used a red pom pom and some white lace ribbons. Brian would like to eat it, but I told him it's for holding a gift card! :)
