"i stamp for lara" weekly challenge #1

 over at the we stamp for lara fundraiser
is the cupcake challenge
this week we have been asked to make something with a cupcake theme
i am in christmas present making mode so i thought i would use the challenge as a way to kick start my present making.

this is for a friend who loves cupcakes 
and is a whizz at making them. 
i am hoping she will make some yummy xmas ones 
and use my box of cupcake accessories to pretty them up!
 sssshhh but i am secretly hoping she doesn't come and visit my blog sssshhhh

 my cupcake box contains 
12 cupcake toppers 
12 cupcake holders
12 serviettes

i used stampin up's jolly holiday dsp and perfect punches stamp set.

cupcake holders were made from this template

i used the christmas perfect punch stamp with my scallop circle punch and some riding hood red and old olive ink plus a toothpick or so to make these toppers

i also stamped into some white serviettes

here are all the goodies packaged into the box
the box was 2 12x12 peices of card
top was scored at 70mm all around
bottom was scored at approx 67mm
large divider was 
approx 20cm (1.5cm each end was folded to make a flap) 
x 15cm (6x6 plus 2 1.5cm flaps)
small divider was 
approx 11cm(1.5cm each end was folded to make a flap) 
x 15cm (6x6 plus 2 1.5cm flaps)
i promise i'll post a tutorial up soon to explain all that odd measurementy stuff lol

the lid was cut originally as a 10cm x 10cm square but it looked too small so i just randomly punched circles out using the 1" punch and stuck a thin window sheet to the back
i finished it all off with a lovely peice of green stripey ribbon and some of that noice red ribbon with a tag attached with twine.
