Let Them Eat Cake: Lolly's Embellishments and Cupcake Box

Hello Crafty Friends!

Our theme this month is Let Them Eat Cake...... which means cake and tea and ... coffee!! And I think Lolly has been drinking a fair bit of coffee as she has been creating embellishments galore!! And that cupcake box!! Oh my!!!
Enjoy! ........ 

I have been assembling various embellishments using the kit.  Are you ready?

First is a set of three embellishments.   On the left is a crepe paper flower with one of the kit's Prima flowers in the center.   On the right is an embellishment made from a paper cut apart, and the center of the three embellishments is made from paper banner dies and a large Prima flower from the kit.  The stamped sentiment is also from the kit.

This next one is one of my old time favorites:  a tea bag paper clip!  I used the papers from the kit and a small tea cup hole punch I had in my stash.

I'm not too familiar with using feathers in paper crafts, but this feather from the kit is a stunning accent to this tag made with a foam sheet tag base.

Speaking of feathers, I thought we needed a fancy lady's hat to wear to our tea time, so I designed a digital image of a hat and lipstick and then made two small hats and a card, using feathers in the hat band.

Then I found a tiny charm from the craft store.  It allows me to slide a piece of paper down into the center, so I used a square of white and used the adorable tiny Doodlebug macaron sticker on it.
Now, that's a "charming" charm!

Since our theme is Let Them Eat Cake, I thought I'd make a couple of cupcake picks!   I attached a skewer to the back using the macaron washi tape.  Then, when the cupcake is gone (because someone just might EAT that cupcake), I can remove the washi and use the embellishment on another craft.

And of course I had to make a Memory Dex card with the Doodlebug coffee cup sticker!

Last, but not least (drum roll, please) is this adorable oven cupcake box!  I had purchased this file from Lori Whitlock, and with this month's theme, I knew I had to make one.  Plus, Amira begged me to make it, and I don't want to let Amira down!  :)     The door opens, and the cupcake tray slides out.  I have used kit papers on the cupcake tray and the back of the oven.  I even found a tiny rolling pin in my stash!

For the full view of the oven and closeup of all these embellishments, watch the video HERE.
