I don't like giving "Just a Gift Card" for a present if I can help it. I am BIG on the presentation of the gift. I saw this sweet idea and needed to try it. There is a wonderful tutorial by "Fabulously Artsy" on how to make a paper cupcake gift card holder - CLICK HERE - to go to it. Basically, this cupcake is a decorated styrofoam ball (that is cut in half to slide the gift card into) in a homemade cupcake liner. I used some upholstery trim fabric for the icing on my cupcake and glued on miniature styrofoam balls for sprinkles instead of what the video shows- but really, the sky is the limit on what you can ice this cupcake with.
I bought a mini glass cake stand and dome to put the cupcake in. Some people at the birthday party
were not sure if it was a real cupcake or not. It looked pretty cool - and the birthday girl was tickled pink. This was a fun project to do!
Thanks for stopping by!
