Cricut Expression, Cricut Cartridge(Flower Shoppe), The Paper Company(white), Pebbles Inc.(Twitterpated Collection), My Craft Spot ("Birthday Wishes" Stamp Set, "Tiny Tags" Stamp Set, "Vintage Vanilla" Crinkled Ribbon, "Strawberry Cupcake" Trendy Twine), Misc(4" Styrofoam Ball, Button, Glass Head Pins, Candle, Bowl).
March is my Birthday Month and like any girl I'd LOVE to get some flowers for my birthday, but unfortunately due to my chronic allergies and asthma I can't really enjoy a beautiful arrangement of flowers. So this got me thinking what about a FAUX floral arrangement made from paper flowers?!
I took inspiration from the the 1-800-Flowers Cupcake in Bloom Floral Arrangement.
Each "Carnation" was made from the Cricut Flower Shoppe "Heart2" Flower and has a total of 10 layers cut at 2", 1-5/8", 1".
The Blooming Cupcake takes a total of 16 "Carnations".
I used some Glass Head Pins to attach the "Carnations" to a 4" Styrofoam Ball.
To the center flower, I inserted a REAL candle and a Pearl Corsage Pin with a flag sentiment stamped with the "Sweet Birthday Wishes" from the "Birthday Wishes" Stamp Set.
The "Carnation Cupcake" was then inserted in a Luau Ice Cream Party Bowl I found at the Dollar Tree. I tied some My Craft Spot "Vintage Vanilla" Crinkled Ribbon and centered it with a "Strawberry Cupcake" Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot - Button. I added the "Wish Big" sentiment from the "Tiny Tags" Stamp Set.
I hope you have enjoyed my Blooming Cupcake. I'm your LAST stop on the My Craft Spot Spring Release Party BLOG HOP.
