A Birthday Cupcake for Olivia

*(The tutorial for this project can be found here.)*

I wanted to do something a little different for little Olivia's second birthday. Olivia is the daughter of one of my bff's, Victoria. While I was blog surfing one night, I came across these adorable little cupcakes made out of onesies and receiving blankets. You can see them here. I don't know of anyone who is having a baby and Oscar wouldn't appreciate sporting a onesie, so I had to figure out another way to make these great cupcakes. So, I'm at Target buying cat food, and see these cute little leggings and tank tops, and I thought, why couldn't I use those to make a cupcake?

With a little folding and rolling, the cupcake was formed. The wrapper is a coffee filter that I stamped. I made a little bakery/coffee style bag for the cupcake with a paper lunch sack and some clear acetate. The cupcake embellishment was made using the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge.

Paper: Bazzill
Ink: Memento
Misc: Ribbon, rubber bands, pencil, cardboard, clear acetate, cricut, paper lunch sack, nestabilities, pop up dots, coffee filter, dmc floss, ribbon, scor-tape

Tedy wanted to be in the picture! Usually, she is sticking her "license plate" in my face while I am crafting, so I should be grateful that she was face forward.

Make sure you check back tomorrow, I'll be posting a tutorial for this sweet cupcake.

Thanks for stopping by,
