Paper Blooms & Cupcake Crafts!

Hey there!! This is my entry for week #2 of the Paper Blooms challenge as well as Week #34 of the Cupcake Crafts challenge! The Paper Blooms challenge this week is to create a box or basket for Easter. For Cupcake Crafts - anything with more than two folds. Now anybody who knows me KNOWS that I LOVE to make 3-D items, so this one was perfect for me.

The box is just an Oragami fold. I believe it's relatively basic. I have "developed" my size to fit Hershey's nuggets. You can get a dozen of them in this box, but I just threw in Easter Rolos for the pictures. I didn't have any nuggets and obviously you can put whatever you want in the box.

I have been seeing the "lollipop" flowers everywhere and I love them!! I think Prima makes them (probably out of a more flower-type material) but I made mine using the QuicKutz Nesting flower dies. You could probably use the Scalloped Nestibilites or even the regular circles and possibly distress the edges slightly. I just wet the papers slightly and crumpled them to get the texture.

Anyway, the papers and my Nesting dies are all from The papers are part of the CropStop January Crafty Kit. The brad in the center is from Doodlebug and the Easter Wishes stamp is from PTI.

I really do like how it came out, but do like it better without the Easter Wishes "flag tag". As always, thanks for visiting! Hopefully I will see you back again soon!
