Thinking of you and Tutorial

Hi everybody hope you are having a nice day, I have a couple of cards today these two were made with paper scraps, the first one using papers from GCD and Melissa Frances, Old book print, die cut chipboard and stamp from Melissa Frances to, silk flower and handmade brad.
Next one of my favorite Baby cards I think it is so sweet and love the soft colors... I use lots of paper scraps from Melissa Frances, K & Company and Creative imaginations, vintage label, rub ons, chipboard music note covered with paint and glitter , silk flower, buttons , fabric and ribbon.
And before I go to start cleaning the kitchen :( I have a tutorial for you today it is very simple but I hope you like it, I create this tutorial a while ago but is one of my favorite projects.
Cupcake box: 1- Paint paper mache box as shown on photo
2- Cut your Styrofoam ball in half.
3- Cover Styrofoam with Modge podge and sprinkle with glitter (I let the glitter dry all night)
4- Adhere half of ball on top of the lid.
5- Cut a large strip of patterned paper with scalloped scissors.
6- Adhere strip of paper around lid as shown on photo.
7- Tie ribbon around box and make a bow.
8- Add some brads on top of Styrofoam.
9- Cut a small piece of paper and stamp sentiment, add toothpick and fold paper in half.
10- Insert flower and toothpick as shown on photo.
11- Finish with button.
These are so easy to make and they can be the perfect gift or party favor!!
