Cupcake tin





I went to this fun paper store I haven't been to before called Paper Source with my friend Kristina the other day. They had lots of cute gifty things, embellishments, stationery and papers. I picked up some flat paper in some great designs. The flat papers are 19 1/2 x 27. I wasn't sure what I would do with them but I was just drawn to them. It didn't take me long to cut into the cupcake paper. I decided to cover a metal tin with the papers and some of my supplies I had on hand to make a fun tin for my craft room to store embellishments in.

Cupcake tin:
Stamps: Cause for Celebration(the stamped cupcake comes from this set- it's a level 2 hostess stamp set)
Paper: Cupcake paper from Paper Source, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Cameo Coral
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate chip, Cameo coral Stampin' write marker
Other: Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, circle punch, scalloped circle punch, paper piercer, clear stardust glitter pen, stampin' dimensionals, chocolate chip satin ribbon.

Doesn't that paper look yummy? I want to go back and get some more!

OHH - these are so cute - just the darlingest (is that a word!) How fun to have a girls day out!! I've never seen paper that big - it would definitely make it easier to cover a big tin with that size of paper! Thanks for sharing!

Great tins! I am a little envious about Paper Source. I'm limited to AC Moore and Michael's unless I want to take an hour or more drive. Thanks for sharing their link.
