I was thrilled to be asked to be the Guest Designer for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge. When I heard the theme was Food & Drink I knew I would use my new Magnolia muffin stamp and after playing around with a few ideas I decided to make this 'box in a bag'. You can get the instructions for making this bag from Splitcoast Stampers - its very straightforward to make. I used bazzil cardstock for the base and my favourite Crate Paper for the bag. I don't have a tag punch so instead I cut 4 circles with my scalloped nesties, punched a hole through them and then stuck them to the top of the bag for the handles.
I also made a matching tag. I used the same DP to paper piece the muffin case, and the reverse of the paper to paper piece the bow. All the colouring is done with distress inks and for the icing I used 'fluffy up stuff' (I can't remember its proper name) and while it was still warm, pressed in some seed beads.
