the making of a paper cupcake!
I wanted to share with you my process for designing my paper cupcake favor boxes .... these are sweet little cupcake gift boxes that you can print and make, and the best part -- they are calorie free!!


I have a round about way of designing my paper kits, I don't design them in CAD or anything technical like that, it's a little bit of this and that (and lots of trial and error) until I get the paper to do what I want it to do.

I'll let you in on my process here in this video:



I created the cupcake flags with text that you can change right in your PDF so you can use them for any occasion -- birthday, baby showers etc, or I think they even look cute as whimsical home decor!
 
    
And how great would these be for Valentines Day! Just use the included Love flag and you are ready to go!

Cupcakes are now available in my Etsy store here!
