Cupcake Pin Cushion

I have a friend who is an amazing artist. She recently sent me some items that she had hand crafted, so I wanted to make something special for her as a thank you gift. I decided to make her a pin cushion in the shape of a cupcake, and adorn it with butterfly stick pins.

From Flamingo Scraps: Webster's Pages: Hollywood Vogue - Spotlight paper, Rangger Glossy Accents, Mini PomPom trim, Prima: Rosebuds in pink, and prima fairytale roses in white. Other: My Favorite Things small spiral rose die, felt, Pins, Pearls, Charms, Glass beads, candle stick, candle plate, doilie.

The cupcake stand is made from a flat round candle plate and a candle stick that I put together using glossy accents. Then I placed a doily on top of the plate to give it the look of a platter or table top. The cupcake wrapper is made from the Spotlight paper from Webster's Page's Hollywood Vogue collection. I dressed it with mini pompom trim, pearls and Prima roses for added interest. For the cupcake I made tiny spiral rose buds from felt. I also made clay rose stick pins using polymere clay.

I just love how elegant this came out. I can't wait for her to recieve it.
