cutest cupcake EVER




as I've said before, I LOVE shrink plastic, so I had to find a way to use the absolutely adorable cupcake punch with shrink plastic, and I think I found it. I stamped the cupcake images onto frosted shrink plastic with the create a cupcake set and our classic ink, then punched them out. I punched a hole in the cupcake base and 2 in the cupcake top with the smaller of the 2 holes in the cropadile, then shrunk the pieces down one at a time with my heat gun. I added 7mm jump rings to connect the top and bottom of the cupcake, and then the top to the lobster claw. I made these to be bracelet charms, but you could also connect them to wires and make earrings. I added a colored rhinestone (with permanent marker) to each cupcake to simulate a cherry. I think they turned out really well. LOVE them!!!
