Cute enough to eat!!

Used three of 6 of the new double-stitched ribbon. From Left to Right: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and River Rock.

I colored the edges of celery grograin ribbon with a bashful blue marker. I got the idea from someone else, but I can't remember who. They had colored the middle of their ribbon red and the edges a different color. If this is you, give yourself the credit you are due!!!

I made these 3x3 swaps for Kelli's meeting tonight. I used the scallop punch and cut it in half for the cupcake top, and crimped a 1" strip of paper and cut in the shape of a bottom of a cupcake. I got the Idea of the scallop punch from Convention. They used the Big Bold Birthday Set (pg. 63 of catalog) but I don't have that set (yet!). So I improvised. I think they turned out so yummy. I actucally added bows to my swaps, but I like just the ribbon wraped around the cardstock, too!

Here's one that the cupcake frosting is Soft Sky in stead of white! I actucally think this could be my favorite...don't tell the others!

Aren't these so fun? I'm loving the 3x3 notecard!!!
